Easter Dresses 2009

Well I seem to be on a biennial schedule as far as making Easter outfits for the kids...but this was an on year. Back at the end of February, as I was cleaning out our linen closet, I found an old set of curtains in a bag. They must have been in the closet since before we lived here [(Yes, I realize that is 8+ years now. No, I do not go through my closets very often (especially the shelves that I have to climb on a two step stool to see.)] Anyway, I knew I wouldn't use the curtains...they don't quite fit our current scheme, so I was about to DI them, when I thought..."There is probably enough fabric here to make some skirts for the girls." If I hadn't been thinking about buying fabric for Easter dresses I admit I never would have thought to pull a Maria from the Sound of Music. Mimi ended up with a skirt, Sweetsa with a dress, and Peaches with a jumper. Here are the finished dresses as they looked on Easter Sunday:

I am throughly impressed. Although I do sew - I don't do clothes and they scare me to death! So I sit in awe and admire the dresses. Way to go.
