Easter Outfits

Here’s my Easter dress!

Simplicity 1755 Easter dress

And last night, I made Eddie a bow-tie to go with my dress! I used this free pattern/tutorial, and used this youtube video to figure out how to tie it (still working on tying it right!)

I think this is one of my new favorite photos of the two of us <3 Matching bow ties might start happening for all of my dresses now…

Easter Dress and Matching Bowtie

I fell in love with this bunny fabric at JoAnn’s about a month ago, and knew it had to be my Easter dress. The bunnies are so cute! And their little Easter eggs! Plus I love that shade of purple with my hair right now :) Also, they had this coordinating fabric…

Easter Egg Pockets

There are Easter eggs just like the ones the bunnies are holding inside the pockets! These little eggs hidden in my pockets make me think of ‘easter eggs’ like hidden goodies in video games.

The pattern is Simplicity 1419, which is one of the Lisette patterns. I made a size 10, which as usual is a size down from my suggested size based on measurements because of the ease included in the big-name pattern companies. I really like the cut and fit of this dress, and I think the peter pan collar is adorable. If I make it again, though, I’ll use some thin elastic or other trim for the neck attachment instead of turning out the tiny rectangle of fabric. I had to move both darts down about 1″ to get them to actually point where I think they’re supposed to. I also made my typical adjustments of adding 1.5″ to the length of the bodice and moving the armscythe up under the arm and in at the shoulders.

Exposed Zipper

Another change to the original pattern is my exposed hot pink zipper in the back. It matches the bunny ears perfectly! This is at least definitely not a dress I’d have ever found in a store.
