As usual, I am way behind with Easter sewing and sewing in general. I thought this might be a good time to share some earlier Easter features–dresses and free designs.
This little chocolate bunny dress was made for my 15 month old granddaughter to wear to the church “bunny lunch and egg hunt.” I was so pleased to finally have the perfect use for my small piece of brown bunny Liberty of London tana lawn.
When I could find no embroidery design that suited me, I bumbled through the digitizing process to create this beginner design. It is yours for the asking by leaving a comment below.
The second free design is one I used on several Easter baskets. The name, of course, is not included but the design itself is Easter eggs nestled in grass
Vivian Rose’s formal Easter dress that same year is one of the few with which I was mostly satisfied. It is a modification of Rebecca’ Bow Dress, a pattern I designed many, many years ago for Martha Pullen and for my own 5 70 Rebecca.
Of course, I sewed for the boys as well. This was a favorite of my younger grandson.
Last year, 4 yo Vivian Rose wore a pink Swiss voile bishop with an antique lace cherub medallion in the skirt. She loved it, in spite of the absence of cats, rainbows, or leopard skin print.
This year will be special for me, my daughter and Vivian Rose. She will wear her mother’s 35 yo Rebecca’s Bow Dress. I’m just finishing the slip. The original has gone missing in these many years. Alastair, bless his heart, will patiently endure wearing a coordinating bow tie, as he has in years past.
We’re looking forward to a joyous Easter celebration with both of our children and their families with our 4 precious grandchildren.
I wish you all a wonderful and meaningful Easter this year.
