Today, I cheated…er upcycled…depending on how you look at it. ;)
and…Bippity Boppity Boo…
Her new Easter dress!
It’s one of the pros of making a white Christmas dress I guess. :)
Plus, those tiny chiffon hems, and tiny satin and chiffon covered buttons were a labor of love that I couldn’t pack up just yet.
Unpicking the old ribbon and replacing it was easily done.
The lovely gold satin ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat (go here for a $50 giveaway also running this week!) is a little stiffer than I anticipated, but I think it should hold up well through hand washing. Or who knows? Maybe I’ll shake things up and keep replacing it with a new color until she grows out of the dress. I do have some blue satin ribbon in my stash…
It’s no secret that I love the basic Five & Ten Designs dress with sleeves. (Scroll to the bottom for the Five and Ten e-book giveaway!)
The original book comes with sleeveless and cap sleeve options like these ones I made here and here, but I am a sucker for standard to mid length sleeves. Especially since, the unique method we use (see the free sleeve download on our site) gives you a completely lined sleeve with no raw edges or frustrating sleeve setting. It is a slimmer sleeve pattern than most, but I prefer it.
Natalie’s gold star hair clip is from this post here.
The gold shoes are from Old Navy from a year ago. I have been hoarding them for Nat, hoping she would have grown into them by now. They are size 5 and are still too large if you can believe it. She is just barely fitting into size fours!
I love how the gold in Natalie’s dress complements the boys’ Spring suits I shared yesterday. Gold is definitely shaping up to be our color of the year this year.
