UPDATE: Here are some pictues of her wearing the dress on easter out in the sunlight where I could get a much better picture of this pretty dress and my pretty little girl. :)
I needed a little help getting motivated on this project. I had the pattern and fabric for several months now and just had never done anything with it. I mentioned to my mom that I thought this would make a really cute Easter dress. So today she just came over and we got it all done in a matter of hours. It turned out so cute. I changed it a little bit from the origional design. I look forward to making this dress again. The pattern goes up to a size 10 in girls so we could still get a few more uses out of it. The only difficult thing was that the fabric was directional so I had to make sure all the cuts I made went the right direction. The pattern called for 3 ruffles at the bottom but I decided to go with just one and made the main body of the bottom a little longer as well to compensate for less ruffles. It isn't quite as long as I would have hoped but it is perfect for her because she is just so clumsy I wouldn't want her hurting herself. Who knows I may go back and add a second ruffle to make it a little longer. We will see after she wears it for a whole day how she manages. I love little maxi dresses and this one is my favorite little girl pattern that I have found. Next time I make one I will for sure make it non directional fabric just to make it a little easier on my brain.
As you can see she thought that posing for my pictures was all just a joke and so funny. She kept laughing the whole time not standing still and of course pulling faces. She is sure my little monster. She has such a fun personality.
Thank you so much mom for your motivation and help with this dress!!
