Easter and The "Party Dress" with photos and tutorial link

We had a great Easter today.  After church this morning we spent the afternoon at a close friends house eating together and watching the kids hunt for eggs.  What a blast! 

 I wanted to make the girls Easter dress' this year as I haven't really made much  clothing in the past, but I do love to sew.  I am really trying to learn more about sewing clothing as in the past I have mainly made home decor projects, baby items, and other crafts, but haven't really gotten into sewing a lot of clothing.  I am hoping to change that and thought this would be a good start.  So before this Easter I was searching high and low to find great Easter or spring dress' to sew for my two girls (we have 4 kids, 2 boys and two girls). I created a whole post on all the awesome options I found out there for Spring dress tutorials with free patterns.   After looking them all over I chose "The Party Dress" from The Cottage Home. I love this blog there are so many free patterns and great tutorials.  I love how the dress' turned out!   I made Bella my soon to be 3 yr old the same dress as Dahlia my 5 yr old.  I just used different fabrics.  The pattern and tutorial was easy to use and that fact that it was FREE was great as well.
 Bella wasn't into the photo taking and was ready for a nap so I took what pictures I could as quick as I could!.

 I love the sweet little covered buttons and big bows!
 The sashes and big bows as well as attention to detail like covered buttons and lining are what made these dress' so special in my opinion.
They absolutely loved their dress'!  Can you tell? Bella wasn't so into modeling the dress for photos, but Dahlia was loving it!  I made the hair clips as well and will share a tutorial on that later.


 Here are some shots of the dress in action!
So in case you missed it I got the FREE pattern and tutorial HERE at The Cottage Home who I want to thank once again  for sharing this amazing dress pattern with us.
I know tons of pictures of the girls and hardly any of the boys but they were too busy running around and getting dirty!  Happy Easter!
