Easter Dresses

This year I wanted to sew Veronica a new “cherry dress.”  Two years ago I took a class at the Riley Blake Fabric Fest from Lindsay Wilkes, aka The Cottage Mama, and sewed this adorable Janey Jumper for Veronica, which always had the top spot in her clothing rotation during warm weather.


But when I ordered the red ribbon trim, I accidentally ordered just 1 foot of trim, which is not enough.  So we had to go with a back up plan until the new trim arrives.


The fabric in this version is called Wee Gallery by Dear Stella Fabrics. 


Somehow I had the right color ric-rac and matching button in my stash.


This dress is destined to be as popular as the cherry dress!


My older daughters wanted their own Easter dresses too, so I happily obliged.


My oldest went with a tropical parrot print from Michael Miller.


And my middle daughter choose a Grace in a Pickle 30’s inspired dog print.  It has a really classic look to it—perfect for the age old past time of climbing trees.



Or perhaps for scootering around the neighborhood.


It was a gorgeous day outside with family and friends.  I hope you had a wonderful Easter, too!  Thanks for visiting!
