It is that time of year again. I saw a Facebook post the other day that stated the four seasons of the year were, Summer, Fall, Winter and Easter. So true if you sew. So I went surfing looking for inspiration. NONE of these projects are mine. I love this first picture. She looks a lot like our princess except for the dark hair and eyelashes.
I love Papo d'Anjo. So classic and fresh. Never overdone.
How many of us born in the 50's have Easter photos that look just like this? I know I do. Many of my early Easter dresses came from Tiny Town, a children's shop still in business today.
Does anything say Easter better than pastel colors and baskets? This adorable dress is done by a favorite fellow blogger, LA Sewista. Love it.
How cute is this sister/brother picture? You might as well look as cute going, as you did coming!
I may have posted this link before, not only is it a gorgeous dress but it is a gorgeous photo as well. This pattern has to be Martha Pullen's best seller of all time. The Heirloom Party Dress. I know I have made it more than once, as many, many others have as well.
The dress pattern was first offered in the book French Hand Sewing by Machine years ago. I loaned my copy to someone and never got it back. I wonder if they have thought of reprinting this book with a new cover?
And we can't forget the boys. Smocked
and unsmocked. Just this picture is beautiful. He is a gorgeous child.
This is a great blog post about a classic Easter dress. I may have to visit the Women's Exchange here to see if they still carry a version of this dress. I love this dress and have a pattern for a similar one waiting for princess to be a bit older. Sounds like a nice girls day, lunch and shopping at the Women's Exchange.
I hope this has gotten your creative juices flowing. I do have a bishop pleated. Also "planned" is a dressier Easter dress. We will see how much gets done.
