Spring Dresses

I know it's been quiet around here lately. Not so for my actual house, but for the Half-Pint House, well, that's just the way it goes sometimes. We're desperately trying to get our living room put back together so the house will feel less chaotic. On top of that I had four dresses to complete by Saturday night.

Easter, of course, is always coldish. Last year I had the idea to take clearance t-shirts and sew coordinating fabric to them to make them match the dresses. I needed sweaters again this year, but wanted them to also be usable for wear with other dresses as well. I again found clearance t-shirts at Walmart and made them into sweaters, but I didn't sew matching fabric onto them this year. I thought this gave the whole appearance more of a classy feel than a cutesy feel (though I do like me some cutesy too!)

Here's the whole ensemble with this year's version of the cardigan hack:

Happy Easter!

And without the sweaters:


It was a bit of a windy day.

Stay tuned for photos of the other major project we've been working on. Just as soon as we get that project done…

    I love these pictures. The dresses and sweaters look great. I know Easter is always cold or damp. You’ve done a beautiful job.

    Great dresses – I love the colors for each girl. Each one seems to work really well with their coloring – E4, especially, since she’s fairer. And I would wear M’s dress if it would fit me!
    We bow to the talented mommy…
