Easter dress in the making


We hunted High and Low for the perfect Easter dress this year. No luck. We decided to visit the local quilt shop. She selected 2 prints from the Eclectic Garden line by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics 2009. The pattern she chose was Simplicity 2989. When assembling the dress I added a lining to the skirt with some tulling sewn in to give it more fullness and an elastic band to the back of the dress bodice for a more comfortable fit. The end result was perfect looking princess.

Now to try and make a miniature matching dress for her American Girl doll Chrissa.
