…to the easter parade…

Okay, okay…so there’s no Easter Parade…and I’m not wearing a bonnet…and there’s no sonnet being written…(but I really wanted to quote something from Bing Crosby’s Easter Parade song.) BUT…it is Easter, and I made this dress especially for today (although I will be wearing it a lot this summer, I’m sure).
This is probably the most success I’ve had with sewing without a pattern. I reeaaaallly spent my time on this one. I did all french seams, the dress is fully lined and the hem is the nicest hem I have *ever* done (and it should be…it took me 4 hours!)
I drew up the dress about a month and a half ago and finished it within probably 2 weeks (although the total hours in the dress are more like 16 from drawing it to final press).
This weekend has been GLORIOUS weather. We have had the latest most miserable spring so far…and then this weekend it all changed. Things are only starting to bloom now. Yesterday we spent all day outside and today took a little stroll down by the library where they have planted a ton of beautiful cherry blossom trees. I feel giddy just looking outside. It’s amazing.
