I love sewing, and while I enjoyed making these super cute dresses, they required a lot of breaks for me. One evening I would work on them a lot, and the next few days they would be neglected. Can you say holy applique?!? I finally sat down and finished them last week. Anyways, I am so so happy with the results! They turned out beautifully, and the girls' smiles made it all worthwhile!
The tutorial on fluffy ruffles was awesome, as well as the tips on applique. I'm saving the info on the ruffler foot, which I hope to purchase in the very near future! (Yes, I'm still basting and gathering, am I the only one left?) The pattern was very clear and well written, so I have a feeling that using it as a tutorial for the ruffler will be a breeze. And just for the super cute and whimsical ideas in this skirt, the pattern was well worth it. I mean, an easter basket as a pocket? So adorable!
I loved it as a skirt, but knowing how my girl's aren't fond of tucked in shirts, and one- pieces are just a bit easier with potty trianing, I went the dress route for miss Emmie. And I'm so glad I did! I actually turned one into a swing top for Ella. Although she was bummed about not having a dress, she is now very excited to wear it with matching ruffle pants to her school easter party. I'm praying for no stains!!!
My favorite part of the whole get-up is the cute little bunny peeking out of the grass in the back of the skirt! Emmie just loves the little bunny. Let's see if she still feels that way after meeting the Easter Bunny on Saturday! I wish I could find the photo from last year-- classic! :-)

What does the Easter bunny fill your little one's baskets with?
