Hey Everyone! Spring is officially here and Easter is just around the corner. If you sew up your daughters special occasion dresses like me, then you are probably working on those gorgeous Easter dresses.
I was tagging along on Annelaine’s Sew-A-Long on Facebook and I’m seeing so many great dresses. You should really check it out. I look forward to doing more sew-a-longs with Annelaine Patterns and they have a lot of great patterns scheduled to release! Let’s talk about their newest pattern though, the Sunshine dress.
This dress Is gorgeous and so very simple to make. I finished it in a couple hours but it looks far more complex than it really is. People will be shocked when you tell them you made it. The pattern is perfect for every little girl, even the older girls. It has a very modest bodice up front and made my oldest look younger than she normally does, which I love. It’s nice having my oldest baby looking younger because she is growing way too fast.
The dress has a couple different options and so far all the ones I’ve seen are just adorable. The back bodice is gorgeous and my favorite part of the dress. It really makes it unique. The buttons can give it a special touch, especially if you’re like me and hoard all the buttons.
I’ve sewn sizes 8, 2T and 12 months and each one fit perfectly with no alterations needed. I do love a pattern that requires no altering. I will say you should definitely mark your button placement while the dress is on though. I tend to think I can do things like that by eye and it’s definitely not the case. So don’t skip that.
Anyway, I’m excited to get started on my own easter dress now and getting some family pictures done for Easter. What patterns are you using for Easter dresses? Let me know in the comments!
