Operation Emma Needs Some New Dresses: The Easter Dress

Originally I had planed to make a different dress for Easter, but then a funny thing happened.  Way back in March I bought some fabric and had a plan in mind for the dress I was going to make for Emma's Easter dress.  Then I thought, "Well, Easter isn't until the end of April so I have plenty of time."  Fast forward to late in the evening April 22nd, "Ohhhhhh,  I never made Emma's dress."
I knew I didn't have enough time to pull off the dress I had planned, but lucky for me I had picked up quite a bit of Riley Blake "Sweet Divinity" fabric when it went way on sale (like $4 a yard, nice).   Then I remembered a dress I had seen a few days back and was able to make Emma a new dress in time for Easter (and I didn't even have to stay up all night to do it.)


Sweet and simple, just the way Easter Dresses should be.


(my family is super awesome at posing for pictures)

I basically did  the same thing Carlee did, only I like a longer, fuller skirt so I made mine about 27" long and 60" inches wide, and I added pick ups at each one of the scallop points for a little extra movement.



Happy Easter from Corner House!
