During the lead up to Easter I've been busy whipping up some sweet little floral dresses. All dresses are made from upcycled vintage cottons that I have op shopped over the last year or so from local charity stores. These dresses are very versatile as they can be worn over long sleeved tops & tights for winter, as well being perfect for summer as is. The style is very roomy with a drawstring waist which allows for many years of comfortable wear.
The two dresses with the contrast border hemline have a pretty lace applique detail, so fancy schmancy.
All these dresses are now hanging in Mooch Inside at Hardys Bay looking quite a treat if I may say so myself. I hope who ever buys them gets as much enjoyment out of them as I did putting together the print combinations & sewing them. Each dress I make is a one of a kind a has a lot of love that goes into it's fruition.
I thought a little handmade brooch might be nice for this dress using the dress fabric & an antique green button.
This little dress has a great 1950's feel to it with the printed border hemline & lace trim. Gorgeous yellow old rose print.
It's the last day of the Easter School Holidays here in NSW Australia & I guess it leaves me with mixed feelings. It has been so lovely having lots of relaxing time at home with the kids doing our own thing & with no fixed routine, but I would be fibbing if I didn't say that I was looking forward to having time to myself for my sewing.
Hope you all had a special time with family & friends over Easter. I would love to hear what you got up to & whether or not you celebrate Easter at all.
