Easter 2016 The Year of Linen

This year, we chose the patterns around McCall’s 7074 for the little girls and  Simplicity 1213 for the big girls. 

 Jocie saw a dress—I think it was a toddlers dress that she liked and everyone approved. I modified the little pattern by putting an extra stripe of fabric on the bottom, and the big girls by color blocking and striping the skirt.  EESH!! I don’t think I will be color blocking for a while.

When all was said and done, the dresses were too long by a stripe, so back to taking some off each color.  It seemed like I was in Ground hogs day and not getting anywhere with the sewing.  It took until the dresses were being hemmed before I liked them. The tops are lined.
Everyone choose their color—One family went with a Royals theme..
One with navy.. there will be gold belts and all—you know how it is when you run out of time.

Two separate fams went with green

I don’t know which is my fav. And I wish I had one…
