Spring/Easter Dress

Started out by finding the Amy Buttler fabric from her LOVE collection. Then I fell in love with the lime green knit fabric that I used for the top part of the dress. I had fun playing with the ruffles around the neckline.

It was meant to be a skirt and shirt combo. But my daughter insisted it be a dress. So I sewed them together and added a zipper in the side.

Here is the Easter Dress from last year. I guess I am still loving this color combo. Although, maybe they are somewhat different hues.

A small reveal...

Do you remember THIS post?

Well, finally here are two of the pieces. The cream top with the pleated neckline and the little bubble, sailor shorts.

Slub V-neck

My sister has a very well loved slub v-neck from Shade Clothing. Her birthday is coming up and she asked that I copy the shirt for her. She even had a hard time handing over the ratty old thing to me. Then when I called to tell her I finished her shirts she asked if I would send the old one back as well...

Here is a glance at a Shade slub v-neck original. She had the white version.

Here are the two colors I ended up doing. I felt like they would go with a lot.
