Easter is Here!!!

We finally made it to Easter and as promised I took some pictures of the girls in their Easter dresses.  I went with the grey ribbon so it would stand out a little more than the pink and instead of tacking the whole ribbon on I used the suggestion for making thread chains to hold the ribbon on the sides.  A big thank you to Liesl and the ladies from the Oliver + S forums for giving me such great suggestions and to help my dresses look the best.  The girls looked so cute and loved their new dresses.

My Easter Skirt/craft fail was not meant to be for this year.  I have it sitting on my sewing table and plan to get to it in the next week or so.  Hopefully I will have a great summer skirt to show off but I did not have enough time this past week to get it finished.  

I wanted to show some outfits that I made the girls pre-blog.  I picked up these shirts at Wal-Mart last year when they were marking down all of their long sleeve shirts to get ready for summer.  I made some ruffled capris for the girls out of a Easter printed fabric from Hobby Lobby and just embellished the shirt with a ruffle from the same fabric as the capris.  I think they turned out pretty good and they were perfect for Friday outfits to school.  The weather cooled down here a lot Friday and Saturday morning so I was happy to have something a little bit warmer for the girls to wear to their school Easter parties.  The capri pattern was from Violette Field Threads and was a quick sew.  This was the first time I have sewn with one of their patterns and I was very impressed. 

The project list has been staying the same for the past couple of weeks.  It seems like every time I think about getting one of the items done another sewing job or project pops up.  It is driving me crazy but hopefully I will get a couple of these done this week.  I will be participating in Elsie Marley's Sewing Clothes Kids Week starting on April 23rd and have a plan to finalize some items for the girls summer wardrobe.
