Easter Dresses in Action

Alright, back by popular demand are the Easter dresses, in action. You'll notice (this is so funny to me) that Breanne is actually the only one wearing a sash in these pictures--everyone started out with one, but I didn't have enough time to measure and cut and *sew on* anyone's sashes, so they were just tied around them like a belt. Of course this meant they were falling off everywhere, so Janey's and Cailin's ended up in my bag. Breanne was the only one who kept hers on all day. And she was the one who chose the satin ribbon (not as thick or bright a white as the grosgrain, but I ran out... sashes are LONG!). Sigh. :)






I love how the dresses turned out, and I love even more how much the girls liked them. Breanne was begging to wear hers for the two days it was finished before Easter, and couldn't wait to put it on on Sunday. I love reactions like that. :)

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I give you a video clip... so you can see how Cailin pretty much destroyed her dress (not really, it's in the wash and doing fine, but it sure looked bad after this). It was all my fault, really, since she didn't want to come outside and take pictures after church (she desperately needed a nap). I may or may not have told the girls to bribe her with her Easter basket of treats. That girl loves her some treats. Maybe someday I'll be able to just get pictures of them all smiling and happy... but for now, I'll take what I can get (and do it in video so you can see that they're actually happy). :)

Oh, I can't believe how big Cailin is now! Of course the girls look absolutely adorable in those sweet dresses. Love it!

Yay! They all look so sweet! I think the sleeves are my favorite part. And I think they're adorable without the sash. Those girls would look cute in pretty much anything. :) Well done, Jessie!

Jessie, they look adorable! I love that you make the dresses - I think that builds the excitement. I need to buck up and learn how to sew. How fun!!

I LOVE the picture of Cailin tugging on her dress.

Tannie Datwyler said...

Okay, so not really tugging on it. She just has a funny look on her face and it's adorable. Don't ask me why I thought she was pulling on it. Hehehe.
