I don’t always enjoy sewing for holidays (that sounds like the start of a meme), but I had so much fun sewing my girls’ Easter dresses this year! I fully intended to share them both today, but as I was editing photos, I realized I have waaay too many for one post so I’m sharing Hattie’s today and I’ll share Lola’s next week. I used the Magrath Dress Pattern for both dresses. I used it for their Christmas dresses as well, but I couldn’t resist making some Spring-y short sleeve versions!
I sewed View B for Hattie, which omits the piecing on the back of the dress.
The white and gold bow fabric is from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores, and it worked out so well with the turquiose and gold Micheal Miller Brambleberry Ridge fabric. I purchased them both the same week, but didn’t realize how well they went together until I had them sitting next to each other.
I love how dainty the floral is on the Micheal Miller fabric.
Hattie measures in the 12-18m size range for her chest, so I sewed that with size 18-24 length to correspond to her height.
For the exposed zipper, I opted for a teal color to add a pop of color.
We had one of the first warm sunny evenings of the spring here in Seattle when we took these photos, and I almost forgot how great it is to take photos when there’s actually light to work with, haha! Hence the too many photos :).
This little dear is turning two at the end of the month, which is quite hard to believe but very fun at the same time. She’s starting to attempt more words, and her siblings have taken great advantage of this and love to have her mimic words which I would prefer she not learn just yet :).
I’ll be back next week with Lola’s dress and some photos of Lola and Hattie together, and in the meantime, you can get your copy of the Magrath Dress PDF Pattern HERE!
