Puffy Sleeve, A-Line Easter Dress April 22, 2011 – Posted in: dress, Easter, girls clothes, sewing

My 5yo wanted “puffy sleeves” (I wasn’t thrilled with that- I don’t like sleeves!) and a “straight” skirt.

I traced one of her T-shirts to get the bodice pattern, but made the waist fairy high. Then I cut the skirt to be an A-line style.

The sleeves were a little trickier, but they turned out really, really well! I used the same technique as found here.

I prefer invisible zippers and I used a sash from the Easter dresses I made two years ago. Maybe later I will make another one, but for now this is good.

It is very simple, but it is what she asked for! For now there is a little room for her to grow (or the dress to shrink) so she should be able to wear it all summer long!
