Oh Friends!!! It is almost Easter!!! And we know that Easter is an extra special time for people who enjoy sewing!!! :) I have stitched a bunch of precious little Easter outfits over the years. I thought I would show a few here and add a few links if you want to dig a bit deeper on this blog.
First though, Easter is late this year! Do you know why? Do you know how it's determined when Easter is every year? I didn't know until about 15 years ago when I actually looked it up. Easter is the first Sunday, after the first Full Moon, after the Spring Equinox. Pretty cool!!!
Ok....so above is one of my absolute favorite little boy Easter outfits!!! This was made with a Creations by Michie pattern #102. Here is the link to the blog post about it.
And here is a close-up of the adorable little chick made with the mother of pearl buttons. So cute!!!
This was a super fun dress to make. And I really liked working with the rick rack to create the flower. You can read all about it here and here. And you can read the tutorial about creating the tucked hem here. I love this technique!!!
This precious dress was not created for Easter but it would be perfect!!! Here's the link for more information and more pictures. This dress was fun to make because I pleated the collar fabric together with the dress fabric and left off the sleeves. So fun!!!
Here's a sweet little bubble that stitches up super quick! I made this as a baby gift for a family at our church at the time. Here's the link. This bubble is fully lined and stitches up fast! And it could easily be made for a precious little boy or girl depending upon the colors you use.
Here's another adorable little boy outfit. Little boys can be hard to sew for...but they don't have to be. :) I loved sewing for my two boys over the years!!! You can read more about this outfit here and here.
Oh my heart!!! Another one of my favorites!! I have so many favorites!!! :) I loved this dress as it was great for a little girl who did not want a bishop dress that year. It was so classic and beautiful!!! It was made from a Maja's Heirloom pattern called Larkin. You can read about it here and see more pictures.
I have plenty more on the blog and I'll dig through some more if I can over the next week or so. But I'll leave you with this dress for now because it is such a quick and fun sew. This is made from the Children's Corner Lillian pattern. I cannot tell you how many of these dresses I have made over the years. I love this pattern!!! It is fully lined and stitches up fast. Plus it is really a blank slate and you can do SO much with it!!! I love it!! This one has some rick rack around it and a rick rack flower in the center. You can read more about it here and here.
I hope you enjoy this flashback of some of the Easter outfits I've stitched over the years. There are plenty more. I will try to highlight some more soon. Until then......Happy Stitching Friends!!!
