Okay, I know I'm a couple weeks late on posting this, but you know how it is with a newborn. other things get side lined.
The night before Easter I was trying M.E. in all her lovely dresses, but none of them fit her, so I decided to make her an Easter dress out of some old fabric I had. I made her a skirt late into the night and was very pleased with the end result. The next morning I put M.E. in her Easter skirt, and low and behold it was too big. Ugh! I quickly went through my big ol' bag of fabric and found the bottom half of a dress I used to wear in high school. I quickly drew up a pattern and made her an official Easter dress. She just looked absolutely adorable in it. I was very proud of myself since I don't have much sewing experience and I only know how to hand sew.
I finished that dress just in time for the rest of our family to arrive for Easter brunch, except they didn't until an hour later. After brunch, which was actually at lunch time we watched the last half of conference then my nephew, Dylan, conquered the traditional Hale Easter egg hunt alone. Well, Nessie and Link found a plastic Easter egg filled with dog treats, so I guess Dylan wasn't totally alone.
Pictures include: The attempted Easter skirt (I even made a train in the back that you can't see), The official Easter dress, M.E. with her Easter basket(above), Link and Nessie with Easter egg.
