Now that I FINALLY have my little girl...I have a great desire to make her lots of pretty clothes...especially for special occasions...but my busy life and lack of time don't seem to let me realize that need very often! I had totally planned to make Sophie's Easter Dress this year...but time slipped away. Since I am trying to budget my money better...I didn't have much of anything to spend on the kind of dress I wanted for her. I decided to get creative and work with a pretty little basic dress that I found at the Deseret Industries (thrift store similar to the salvation army). This is what I started with...minus the layer of tulle AND it had a horrible dirty yellow silk flower right in the middle that I removed. ( I didn't think to take pictures until I was into the process).
I bought it for just 3.00....it was gently used and had a really great structure. So I decided to head to my lovely stash (a rather large stash) of trims and see what I could make of it. Now this was Saturday afternoon about 3:30...so I still didn't have a lot of time to do exactly what I wanted...but I was still pretty happy with how it turned out. I ADORE my little Sophie! Isn't she a sweetheart?
I bought the hat at T.J Maxx for another 3.00 and added trims to it as well.
Now let's not forget my HANDSOME boys!
Here is Brayden, 15
And Ethan, 6
The loves of my life all together :)
I hope you all had a blessed Easter.
