Time hasn’t been a luxury for me lately, but I wanted to take time out to do something this Easter for the girls. It’s a tradition my mom held with us when we were kids to make Easter dresses. I love that tradition. I’m sure at some point, Pen & Junie will dread it, but for now they just lit up when I showed them their new skirts.
I didn’t go sophisticated with their outfits at all. I just made two simple circle skirts and called it good. Junie is in the middle of a growth spurt, so I made her skirt fairly long so she can grow into it. Need some pointers? Check out this tutorial.
Making a woven circle skirt is quite easy. You just have to make sure that you’ve cut the opening wide enough for the hips to fit through and then you put the elastic in the waistband and gather it to fit the waist. Finishing the skirt is simple. If you’ve got a rolled hem foot, it’s even easier.
Add some fun shoes a chambray shirt and I called it a day for these two munchkins.
Poor Felix didn’t get anything made. But he doesn’t care quite like the girls do. He had plenty of fun playing with the Hot Wheels cars that the Easter Bunny brought.
OMG aren’t these little Mary Jane Moccs the cutest things ever?!? They went perfectly with Junie’s outfit!!
