I made all three of the kids Easter outfits for this year! I think it’s fun to coordinate fabric and styles of three outfits for two boys and a girl. I love thinking about the colors and how they’ll look in different fabrics. Since I was making three outfits with multiple items at one time I decided to only use free sewing patterns.
I wanted to use some nicer fabric, so I put my budget towards my fabric instead of the patterns. I love to support designers, but buying a lot of patterns at once would wipe out my budget.
I did this all in February before baby #3 came so that it would actually get done. It was earlier than needed, but it got done!
Spring is always a good time for me to check on the state of the kids’ dress wardrobes and make things that can last at least six months to a year. My kids only wear their dress clothes on Sundays and the occasional wedding, so their clothes don’t get destroyed too quickly.
Baby girl isn’t big enough to wear her dress yet, but I wanted to be prepared anyway. I used the free Geranium dress sewing pattern in the 0-3 mos size dress. She’ll be four weeks old so I hope it’ll be the perfect fit!
I used a fluid polyester fabric so I wouldn’t have to iron or worry about wrinkles. I lined the bodice with a scrap woven cotton to make it comfortable to wear. I love how the stripes switch direction.
