I love making frilly dresses for my daughter, though I seldom have the time to do now that I've gone back to college, but I made these for Easter in 2006 and 2005.

I bought the material for this one several years before she was even born, but like most awesome impulse fabric buys, it sat on my shelf unused for a very long time.  I had no idea what I'd use it for when I bought it, but the embroidery along the one edge was too beautiful to pass up.  I was sorting through my fabric one day and realized that there was just enough of it to make a dress for my then 3-year-old, but there might not be enough for the size she'd wear the next year, so I decided to use for an easter dress. I found a beaded headband that matched the shade of the dress perfectly.  The sash is just a ribbon with trellis-like cutouts.  I thought it was perfect the second I saw it. 



This one was done the year before when she was two, and is the first thing I ever made for her.  I had seen a dress in a shop with a doubled layer of tulle that had flower petals inside and I loved it, but they wanted $60 which is far too much for a toddler's easter dress.  So I bought a dress pattern and modified it to include the tulle overskirt.  I found perfect peach and yellow silk roses to break up and put into the skirt, and she was just adorable.  (and I'm not biased in my opinion at all  Wink)



As an interesting side note, the yellow dress was made before I got my serger, and the blue one was made after. There is a world of difference when you look down at the inside of the dresses Cheesy

Both of these are very cute... I especially like the ties on the blue dress.
