Simplicity 2683: An Easter dress

Is there anytime of the year more fun to have a daughter than Easter? Maybe Christmas. But when you have  a a little girl who loves froo fro16813614078_8bb71815ad_ko dresses , Easter comes a close second.

Enter Simplicity 2683 I have had this in my stash for a while but never got around to making it. It is a simple empire wasted, six paneled dress. I made a base of white polyester taffeta from JoAnne and made a second dress in pink lace to top it. It was this layer to which I stitched the sash.  I joined the two layers at the neck and arms

I decideSONY DSCd to do a wrapped bias binding rather than a turned facing. I thought it added a little more interest, but I did have to consult some sewing resources to do the square neckline with the bias tape.  I used this basic method: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/how-to-bind-an-inverted-corner-or-v-neck-with-bias-binding and I think it turned out quite well.

I serged all the seems and used a center back staSONY DSCndard zip. The flower is store bought. I wasn’t going to bother with it  but Caroline saw the picture on the pattern envelope and latched on to the fact that there was a flower. So a flower she had to have.

I think SONY DSCit turned out great. My little princess loves it.
