Saturday afternoon I sat down and started cutting out fabric for Gwyneth's Easter dress. Yup, I know talk about last minute. I don't know where the time went last week, but somehow I didn't get to it until then. I worked for a few hours, stopped and then went to my parents for dinner, then started again after the kids went to bed. I got it done and even managed to get five hours of sleep before the kiddos woke up on Easter morning.
I was confident I could get it done, since the pattern is pretty much the same one I used for her Christmas dress, except I added little cap sleeves (with lace edge), left off the sash, and added a lace trim to the bottom.
The pattern is from New Look 6648. It's made with Kona Cotton in Buttercup and it's fully lined (with tulle in between the layers to make it a little fuller). The lace is just a simple cotton eyelet lace. The back has a zipper closure.
Gwyneth loved this dress and didn't want to take it off at the end of the day. I'll be back tomorrow to show you Connor's Easter shirt!
