Baby Easter Dress

Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies. This month I decided to make this Baby Easter Dress.

Baby Easter Dress

This Baby Easter Dress is made from my fabric stash. The Easter fabric was purchased last year and the white fabric was leftover from another project.  In addition, the embroidery floss has been sitting in my stash for quite a while.  I purchased the buttons for the back as well as the pattern to make the dress. Of course the pattern was on sale for $1.99 and I had a coupon for the buttons. 

Material (for size L):

Butterick Pattern B4110
1 5/8 yards main fabric
3/8 yard of each contrasting fabric and fusible interfacing
elastic
single fold bias tape
6  1/2″ buttons

I have been sewing most of my life but the directions on this particular pattern seem a little confusing! I had to refer back to a different pattern a few times to clarify I was headed in the right direction. So, if you are new to sewing this would probably not be the pattern to start with! Although it did turn out really cute in the end! To make the bunnies and egg on the front I just traced a bunny and an egg from the material. Then I taped that to my window and traced it onto the white collar fabric with a water soluble marker. The egg is made from a satin stitch. The bunnies are made from a straight stitch to look like fur. And the flowers are made from a daisy stitch, french knot and outline stitch.

  1. How sweet. You have such talent

  2. My mom made all of our clothes when I was little. It began as a frugal way to have nice things to wear, then it became more of an obsession of how to get an outfit out of a remnant piece from the store. – Margy

  3. That dress looks Store bought! Those collars can be bears to sew! One time (2 decades ago) I was making a collar on my son’s Easter outfit-he was two years-old). It eventually became a tiny pocket in front, due to technical difficulties. Lol. Great job on the dress!

    Roseann, that is so darling! I have done a lot of sewing in my life but not in recent years. Your baby dress reminds me of all the dresses I made for my two daughters when they were little. I still have some of them and I know I should pass them on but I don’t have any granddaughters–just four grandsons! It’s hard to think of just donating them but I suppose I’ll have to at some point as I work on decluttering my house.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful little project.

  5. I admire people who can sew. So adorable.

  6. This is such a pretty Easter dress. It so sweet since it was handmade by you.
