Yes, it's been awhile since Easter, but it seems like there was one thing after another. My washing machine decided to continue pouring water even though the barrel was full, so I unknowingly walked right into a 2" puddle in my kitchen that had spilled over from the laundry room. It's also supposed to rain for the next two weeks, so I am officially over water at this point. Luckily I managed a few shots of the Easter dress I made for my little papoose when there was the tiniest break in the clouds.
I waited until the last minute to make this dress, like day before kind of last minute. I didn't really know what design I wanted, I just knew I wanted something vintage inspired and angelic and oh-so-sweet! I gathered all my whites and neutrals hoping to be inspired, and I settled on this lace fabric as my starting point because I knew I had enough of it for the dress. I sketched out something quickly and decided to go with it.
For something that was quickly thrown together, I love the way it turned out. I think it hit all the points I wanted, so yay for that. I added a sweet little double ruffle bloomer shorts with the same lace trim that's seen in the dress, and it just completed the outfit so beautifully. The lace fabric and both lace trims are special because they were all from my mom's stash. While I was sewing, I kept thinking the outfit was so sweet and classic that maybe one day she'll want her little girl to wear it on a special occasion. But I don't want to think about that right now! My baby!
