Every year, I struggle with Easter time. Spring comes and melts away the snow and the bright, sun peeks out again after a long, gray, winter. Winter brings wonderful, comfort, foods that have a lasting effect on my body. Suddenly, I realize the snow is disappearing but the pounds I have gained over the winter months will not, at least not easily. My family takes a spring vacation to Florida annually. Florida conjures up a bit of a panic for me, because it means bathing suits, shorts and a Easter dress. Easter is a special time for our family and we always dress for the occasion. Looking in my closet, I knew I needed to make a dress. I wanted pink. In the past, I have worn black on Easter, mostly because it was the only dress that fit me, the good news this year is that I have ate better over the winter and it has helped. I am not in a frenzy about what to wear, I will sew what I need. What a relief to know my dress is right in my fabric closet and hidden in my imagination. This is my Easter dress. I made it from this 1940's pattern. After making the swing dress earlier this year, my hands got itchy to underline a dress. I don't want to wear slips all the time and this seems like a good alternative to them. I used the information from Gertie's blog for underlining. Anyway, I am very happy with the fit of the dress. The lace jacket I bought at the antique store just needed a few alterations. I was surprise that I had no problems sewing the lace on my machine. I think the combination is nice together. I hope you having a wonderful spring.
