Sewing With Easter In Mind

I've got big plans this Easter and it's getting down to the wire with very little time to finish.
I should probably be sewing instead of blogging about it... so I'll make it short.

I'm using the Glitz line by Michael Miller (and I know I'm not the only one) for my girls' dresses.

Not only are they each getting a dress, but the plan is for each of them to have a lavender coat with blush pink lining as well.  I'm using a vintage pattern that has really been a pleasure to sew.  I even did the interfacing as it instructed out of reverence to the awesomeness of vintage.

I'm 3/4 of the way done with my own dress for Easter as well.  I cut into my prized Amy Butler challis and only had scraps left over after very imaginative cutting.  I'm using an OOP Simplicity pattern with a great yoke detail on the front that I'm afraid I wasted by not adding some piping or using a contrast fabric.  Oh well.

Already completed for my girls are some t-shirts that are a collaboration between me and my dear friend Gifton Gammon, who is also the graphic designer for all things Molly Blossom (my pattern company).  I had an idea to combine bunnies and Christ's ressurection and she made it happen with a happenin' design.  I printed a yard of these vingettes on Spoonflower and made shirts available for sale as well.  

The shirts are all winging their way to their new homes now, but I think I'll offer them again next year.  I just love the meaning behind this super-cute design.

Alright, back to sewing, or my visions for Easter dress perfection won't be realized.
