I am busy sewing up a storm over here! One Easter dress is totally finished and two more are started. The other one is still just a sketch and some random scribblings. I usually like to wait until they are all finished, but I am so excited about this one and I also wanted to audition for The Sew Off, so I only have a few hours to spare before auditions close. :)
I designed this dress for my oldest daughter from various elements of other dresses I have seen and liked. I am still thinking of a name for it, too. I will give the full tutorial later, but in the mean time, here are some of her modeling shots.
It has a cross-front bodice, just because I have never made one and wanted to try it. I also fell in love with the idea of a wide band overlaid with crochet lace trim.
What little girls wouldn't love a pretty laced up back?
The challenge was getting the lacing to work with a full circle skirt. She specifically asked for one that twirled, which meant that I had to make a dash to the store for more fabric last night.
