I made Bella and Bear outfits for this Easter too!
Bella had picked out her accessories when we went shopping one day. She wanted to full look! Hat, gloves, purse, and shoes with her Easter dress!!! I had some blue fabric still left from previous projects (remember my gathering fiasco?!) I knew it would be perfect for Easter!
I took her dress from last Easter and traced the bodice as a guide. I wanted it to have a white waistband and tie. I had some of this beautiful white fabric left over still (I have used it in 4 projects now!!!) As I sewed up the final seam bodice I decided to keep it sleeveless (I wish I had decided that earlier!)
The skirt was the hardest part. In the end it was not perfect but still very cute!!!
For Bear I got a piece of remnant fabric and a fat quarter to make him a vest. I also used some of Bella's leftover fabric to make him a tie. I did most of the vest on the machine but had to hand stitch the last bit as not to wake the kids or neighbors! I also hand stitched his entire tie! I could not find my button foot Easter morning so I "cheated" and just sewed the buttons on one side and safety pinned it underneath!!!
Bear did not want his pictures taken!!! Still I love the pics and my kidos!!!!
