Easter Dress

We had a change of plans.  With all of the family in town everyone decided to go casual so there was no need for the ruffled dress I was making for baby girl.  I will be finishing it for mothers day.  Here is a peak at how it looks so far.  I have a long way to go to get it the way I want but so far I like it.  Pink tulle didn't show up enough for me and at first the brown seemed to be too much.  It's grown on me however and I like that it has a little punk look about it.  Something about this dress reminds me so much of my baby girl.  Soft and lovely but also a little tough;)

Here is what she ended up wearing.  Do you remember the bubble romper I made and posted about here?  I didn't like the bodice at the time.  It was awkward on her.  It turns out it was just way too big for her!  I cut off the bottom and made it into a dress for Easter and it is perfect now!  I Made this out of super thin corduroy so it's not too hot and I embroidered the blue birds along the front with my machine.  The lace came off an Anthropologie cloth napkin that had been turned into a clutch a long time ago. 

So what do you think?  Is the brown tulle too much? Pin It
