Easter in Pink

The second dress I did for Easter was also beautiful.  For this dress, I used Children’s Corner Lee pattern.

Lee

The fabric I chose was light pink satin batiste from the Smocking Bird and I decided to use embroidered insertion for the band in the skirt with matching lace on each side.

The embroidered edging was added to the bottom.

For the yoke, I copied the band on the skirt.

Make sure you stay stitch around the neck to prevent the lace from stretching.  I didn’t do the best job of that.  For the sleeves, I did beading with a pale pink ribbon and a lace edge that matched the insertion.

My cousin’s daughter was the recipient of the dress and loved it.  It is always satisfying when your creations are loved!

I would love to see any outfits you have made!
