I wanted to share my Easter dress pictures with you. I was so super excited about my Easter dress.. I was initially hoping to make a dress with floral fabric but didn’t have much luck finding any at my local fabric stores. I ended up using a silk fabric that I had sitting in my fabric stash.
I decided to do a franken-pattern since I started so late on Saturday. I used these patterns below. I took the bodice from view A of Mccalls M7126 and the skirt from view C of Mccalls M6955.
Here is what I came up with:
Yes, that is a black zipper. Don’t judge! I was sewing this at midnight…
This below is my Bollywood “falling in love ” pose 🙂
Love the full circle skirt. The fabric drapes so nicely. It was soft and lightweight, perfect for Easter. The weather yesterday was so nice too.
And now…the more important part of this post… Our first Mommy and Me outfit! I finished my dress at midnight… and then started my daughters dress. Hers is a quick 2 piece outfit. I lined her skirt with the same lining as mine. Amazing what a little bit of scrap fabric can so right? If you ask me, she wore it best 🙂
Here she is giving me some lovies after Church….
And the entire family decided to make a guest appearance :0)
PATTERN: FrankenPattern!!!I took the bodice from view A of Mccalls M7126 and the skirt from view C of Mccalls M6955.
FABRIC: I used a silk from my fabric stash. I don’t know much about it since it was given to me by my mum. The only thing I can tell you is that she bought it from a silk exhibition in Chandigarh, India. SInce I highly doubt any of you are interested in making that trip, you can find similar fabric HERE if you would like to re-create this look.
SEWING: The dress is easy to sew, but it is time-consuming. Not ideal for a last-minute project!
I hope that this inspired you to create something! Did you sew or shop for your Easter outfit? I want to see! Let me know what you wore and how you styled it 🙂
