Easter Dress! FINALLY!

So, I have been working on Lilly's easter dress for quite some time now. I made some really good progress BEFORE easter and had it nearly finished, but then easter came and went with General Conference, and I didn't get it done. Well, then easter was over and I had not reason to hurry. So, Brent was gone really late Saturday night, so I stayed up to nearly midnight finishing. All in all the dress probably ended up costing me under $8.00. I got teh fabric a few months ago for $1.50/yard and just held onto it. Then I had a vision of an easter dress made from the fabrid with a great pink sash. After finishing the dress I couldn't help but try my hand at a hair thingy. I never make hair accessories, however, I don't buy them either and Andra says I will regret it. So hair thingy I made. I am very happy with the outcome! And where did Lilly wear it her very first time? The Conference Center in Salt Lake. Yeay for cute little girl dresses! Yeay for me being able to figure out new sewing stuff!

Laila, It's darling! Easter Sunday was too cold and snowy for a sleeveless dress anyway! What a cutie!

Ramona, I figured whenever it happens to be too cold I can slip a long sleep under it. I plan on my dresses lasting for several years! Cindy, I have about 1/2 a yard left, but I am making a skirt for her out of it too!
