Easter Fashion--Last Minute Ideas

Pin It
Just thought I'd throw out some last minute ideas for some Easter fashion.  Do you sew a special Easter outfit? My girls still ask for an Easter dress, but I've never done anything special for my boys. If it's too much of a time crunch, these would all make a nice "special occasions" type outfit for those up coming like "graduations" (my daughter will be finishing elementary school and moving on to middle school) and weddings.

All of these dresses could be made into something comfortable and more causal or with a different fabric choice something more fancy and elegant looking...yet they are all seemingly easy designs that should sew together rather quickly (I can't tell you that for sure as I've not sewn any of these, but from reading the descriptions and looking at them I think that is the case).
Update:  We now have a couple of affiliations (i.e. Peek-a-boo Patterns).  One of our missions has always been to help people find the the patterns they want. Always, the round-ups are just our thoughts and ideas and are just put them out there to make it easier for you.  But, affiliates assist us buy the patterns we review.

Little Wrap Dress--for the life of me, I couldn't get this picture to post, but it really looks like a great dress.

Now for the boys:


Hope this gives you some ideas and that you are able to get some Spring sewing done. Does anyone else feel that this time of year is rather crazy? As my kids have gotten older and more involved, this time of year is filled with recitals and concerts as well as end of school year activities.  It's all kind of time consuming, but fun at the same time. But if you are managing to get some sewing done, please link up!
