Not Easter Dresses but Dresses None the Less

So I didn't make the girls Easter dresses this year.  I am not much of a 3D sewer :)  I have dabbled in costumes, pj's, and shorts.  You know, the easy things that don't need to come out looking all that great.  So the idea of Easter Dresses has me running for the hills.

With that said, a few years ago (aka 2009)  I saw this tutorial over at Crazy Mom Quilts for Patchwork Dresses.  Now that is something I can handle!!  I made four, one for each of my 2 daughters and one for each of my 2 nieces (edit . On my side of the family.  If I had made them for the nieces on my husband's side I would have been sewing forever :).   I made a few adjustments to the tutorial, mostly for length purposes.  The tutorial was so easy to follow and I just love how they turned out!!

So ya, no Easter Dresses . . . But maybe next year they will get another patchwork dress as they have so grown out of these ;)  Sorry for the poor pictures, I didn't have a blog in 2009 so posing for pictures wasn't all that important :)


I can't get this picture to orient right.  Sorry :)
