My Easter Dress

Oh I am so in love with my Easter Dress. It is nothing fancy - just a simple dress that made me smile. I used Mccalls 5975 and an old Stretch&Sew pattern to make it. The inspiration came from this post of Tam Styles' blog , Get it Girl Style. Once I saw this dress, I could not get it out of my mind and just had to have it.

I used M5975 for the bodice and the sleeves . I used the skirt from the Stretch&Sew pattern.This image to the left is the back view. Sorry for the blurry image! I altered the back neckline to sit just above my bra closure. This design change was simple and I can see another dress in the works. I added my usual band treatment . Elastic was added at the waist. (Kind of addicted to elastic - secretly)

Here is an image of the patterns that I used. This Mccalls pattern is a keeper. Great fit right out of the envelope - even with the pattern change.

A pic of the fabric!!!!!

OOH I am so giddy over this dress. It is exactly what I wanted!!
