Easter Dressing

What happens when you make adorable outfits for your two girls, and matching bow ties for your son’s and then try to get them all to take a picture together?

If your answer was complete chaos, then you my dear are a genius.

While skimming the internet early this month, I found a pattern on One Little Minute that I decided to purchase for the Easter dresses of the ladybug and lil miss twizzler. I spent this weekend sewing them up (like any great mom – I waited until the last-minute when I also had orders to get out) and I think that they came out beautifully! The pattern was super simple to work with, and I love how professional the dresses ended up looking. The armholes are perfect, and the length and finish with the lining and main fabric was fabulous.

I used Michael Miller Citron Gray Cote d’Azure for the ladybugs’ dress:

and Michael Miller’s Citron Gray Straw Daisy for Lil Miss Twizzler

I also made matching bow ties for the boys, and well, I attempted to get photos. Here’s visual evidence of my feeble attempts.

I have no explanation for this photo. DSC_2109 This one screams he so tired of the paparazzi. DSC_2101And escaping. As usual. I mean, seriously. He’s either running, jumping, flipping, tumbling, rolling, or bumping. He does not stop.

Here are some better photos:

I hope that you and your families enjoyed the Easter festivties if you celebrate and that you truly remembered the reason for the season.

      Thanks! I definitely need to go ahead and whip up more of those dresses for them. They are super cute – and I’m sure if I did them in a solid color, they would rock them!

    […] Then you attempt to get a photo of all three together in your very horribly lit kitchen, with way too many things in the background. I can’t believe that the ONLY person who is smiling for the camera is normally the one that is a blur. By the way, that dress that the ladybug is wearing is the dress that I sewed last year for Easter. […]
