I sewed the first fabric accent onto the back piece and decided to rip it off and try the bunny fabric. I am so glad I did. Even though a bunny fabric really "screams" Easter, this whole dress turned out very spring-y and will work well in summer too.
The pattern I used is the Garden Party dress, a predictable choice for me since I almost exclusively only sew Oliver and S patterns when it comes to dresses for young girls.
I really did get some great pictures of her modeling this dress but it wasn't easy. She was in no mood to cooperate and I pretty much had to say that she'd have to skip having any more Easter candy unless she complied! After a little while, she warmed up to it, as you can tell. I really do have a great appreciation for professional photographers who have the talent to work with kids- it seems like an impossible job based on my amateur experience.
I gave Charlotte the assignment of sifting through my vintage buttons to choose one for the back closure. Can you believe she found this cute little bunny one within minutes? I was thrilled and was definitely not going to make a trip to Joann's to buy one bunny button!
I liked the Garden Party dress pattern a lot. I am so in the mood to make her more dresses right now, I just love the challenge and the speed with which these projects come together compared to a quilt.
