Easter Dress Completed!

Tada! My baby's Easter Dress is finished! I am loving the way it turned out! I used this sew along tutorial with only one or two modifications. Her dress was for a 2 year old, where mine is for a very tiny 9 month old.

I used a cotton yellow sheet for both this and the Easter tie I made for her daddy. I used the sheet for the outside and the lining. I was afraid it may be a little sheer, but it wasn't a problem. The white is an eyelet material. On the sleeves and bottom, I only used one layer, but for the bib I put an extra layer behind the pleats to keep the yellow from showing through. I LOVE the pleats!

The back I used covered buttons. I don't have a button hole setting on my sewing machine so I started to do the holes by hand, and I quickly gave that up! I messed with my machine until I figured out how to do a button hole on my own! Actually not that bad! 

I made a matching diaper cover using this tutorial. My ruffles were being stubborn and not working out, so I used the last of my white ribbon and made ribbon ruffles instead!

Here's my little one modeling:

(Don't you just loooovvvveee the ruffles?!)

The pictures are horrible, but I was the only one home and couldn't get my fiery little girl to stay still long enough for a good one!! I'll post some better pictures later! Probably on Sunday with her Daddy in his matching tie!!
I'm so glad they're done! Now on to lion costumes!!
