Last night Haley reminded me that she needs a new Easter Dress. Good thing she’s on top of it, because Easter hadn’t even crossed my mind!  I’m home with a sick child today, so now that he is asleep I decided to take a look and figure out this Easter thing.

First…when is Easter this year?  A quick google search revealed that Easter Sunday this year is April 24th. Pleeeeenty of time!

Second- what pattern? The first pattern that popped into my head was the Polkadots & Summer pattern by Fig Tree.  Maybe it’s too simple for Easter – what do you think?

Regardless, the thought took me into the fabric room to look for combinations. Beautiful linen paired with this print from central park.  Doesn’t it seem very spring-y?  (And could be worn over a shirt if sleeveless won’t work.) I love the the blue, the purple, the green – all of it!

Then I started looking for other fabrics….and long story short – Haley reminding me of Easter inspired me to make up 4 new dress kits for this pattern.  I doubt I have time to make one before my little sicky wakes up, but maybe this weekend?!?!?  The dress is really fast!  Which combo should I do first?

  1. I like the “spring” combination for an Easter dress. :)

  2. I like the Spring combo for Easter too! So cute! I love the Summer combo too! Very fun! I’ll have to go check them out! :-)

  3. Spring for sure. But I also like the Summer with the gingham look too. Either one — you can’t lose.

  4. All 4 are great combos! I especially love the Central Park Spring one, of course!

  5. Thanks guys! what about for just a dress – not an easter dress?!?!? I am actually loving the breeze combo and maybe add a cute applique down in the bottom left of the dress front. Hmmm….

  6. Spring for sure! :)

  7. I love simple for Easter! I bet a cute headband would bring it all together!

  8. dearest melanie, in my biased opinion you should go with the spring combo — would make a great easter dress, st. patrick’s day dress, 4th of july dress or even a regular dress dress. i also love abby’s idea of adding a cute headband to the ensemble. bridle path plaza would be perfecto! ;)

  9. I love this pattern Melanie! Since I am new to sewing clothes, do you think this would be a good pattern for me to try?

  10. Love the one called Spring.

  11. Spring!
    wish this pattern came in a larger size, too cute!
