But, it simply didn't happen. I got all of the fabric and cut out the pattern pieces. I made the bodice and sewed the skirt portion. Mom helped me get the sleeves on it. But, when it came to putting it all together, it didn't work. I cut the pattern out a few sizes too big and looked too much like a clown. Not cool. Mom wrote a blog about it. I stressed out about it. So, we just went to Loft and found a cute dress that was already made. Easy peasy.
Well, this year, I really wanted it to work. So, I braved up and worked on attaching the top to the bottom. A minor elastic malfunction aside, it went together.
We've got pink and green shirts for the boys (going for the matchy-matchy this Easter)...and I think this year will be the year of the homemade dress (but, I do have a backup in my car...just in case!). To prep for the "big day", I thought we'd review some Easters of the past.
