Blush Pink Lace and Silk Cotton Easter Dress for Izzy

easter dress blush pink silk lace

I loved creating this custom ordered Easter dress for Izzy! The dress is made with pink lace and lined (& underlined) with blush pink silk & cotton fabric. This dress looks prettier in person than in photos. The pink is light with a peach color undertone. I rarely wear pink, but I would definitely wear this pink color and dress style! Lined and underlined with beautiful silk cotton fabric...

Unlike most people, I never considered the new year beginning January 1st. Through my school years, my new year began in late August and I counted the years by my grade. Now I no longer count my years that way, but it’s still not the first of the year. Now my new year starts on Easter. Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I HATE Lent. Between the unpredictable and depressing weather, greatly missing my sister overseas, and making restrictions on my favorite daily indulgences, this is by far the hardest time of year for me. It’s the time of year I’m forced to dig deep, make changes, and...

Easter 2015 Burdastyle Ukrainian Embroidered Linen Crop Top and Skirt

Ukrainian Embroidered Linen dress crop top

Krystos Voskres! Happy Easter! I knew I wanted to make this Burdastyle outfit as soon as saw it in the monthly Burdastyle magazine! However it wasn’t until 2.5 weeks before Easter, that I received my linen in the mail and began embroidering the crop top/blouse. My wonderful mother came to my rescue by embroidering the dark red skeleton of the design. This part of the embroidery takes more time and attention because you have to count squares and make sure the pattern is straight of the linen bodice piece.   Unfortunately, I caught the stomach flu a couple weeks ago. Despite feeling awful, it was a godsend because I was...

  This children’s floral jacket was made for one of my First Holy Communion customers.  (I’ll post photos of her dress and veil later this week!) I absolutely love how this jacket turned out! I made a similar jacket for myself (see the jacket here) last spring. At first I was worried that the floral print would be too large for a children’s jacket, but I was wrong! I love this floral print even more for a children’s jacket! Details about the jacket: – Based off of the Burdastyle Long Dress Coat 02/2012 #140 Size 8 -Welt pockets with flap -Fully lined (Blue and Red Cotton/Poly blend fabric) -Interfaced floral fabric -Fabric covered...
