I have a plan for Easter sewing, a dress for each of the girls and a button down and pants for the boys. It is an ambitious goal considering I am only just now starting, but as with years past I am not going to kill myself trying or be disappointed if I can't get it all done.
I started with this yard of fabric, my whole plan revolves around it. I picked the other two girls dress fabrics based on the colors in this dress.
I was going to wait on photographing the outfits until I had them all finished and could do them together, but I found this incredible spot this afternoon on a walking trail. It happened to be one of the few spots accessible from the street (it is off a twisty narrow road), and pretty much the only spot that you can't see houses in the distance or power lines.
I can't believe it's been two years since I last made this pattern, the girls wore those to death, until they became indecently short. So, I figured to knock out two birds with one stone, Easter sewing and the size 5 project. This is, of course, the Oliver + S Bubble Dress in a size 4. It is a really quick sew, and able to be made out of just one yard, well, one yard for the main and one for lining.
Georgie was so excited while I was sewing this dress, 'It's just for me?!' 'Do I have to share?' and Iz was so confused, 'but why is there only one?'. Haha, I usually assembly line two for them, but I figure it probably isn't a great idea this time as their closets are quite full already and I want to make other patterns in the stash...
So, I plan to make Izzy a Fairy Tale, Jack and Sam a Sketchbook and Art Museum, aaaand Abby is my only question mark. I am thinking a Garden Party, but we will see how she feels.
