This year I am ahead of the game and have both the two little ones Easter outfits sewn. Sweet pea outfit is the ModKid Addison dress and Prince C is the Oliver + S Art Museum vest/pants and the bow tie is also from Modkid. (The dress shirt is form my very favorite boy pattern from Ellie Inspired, The Button and Bows onsie shirt) (yes I have been sewing up a storm still but you will have to wait to see all the wonderful things I am working on)
I am helping host a sew along for these terrific outfits over at Whimsical Fabrics. (I am show you how to make the girl and doll dresses) Danielle even has these wonderful kits you buy with everything you need to get started other than the thread. Easy Peasy right? The kits are even on sale to right now with the code:SewAlongSavings and save 10%.
You know Prince C loves this outfit! I am sorry it took me so long to get around and sew him one. (almost 2 and 1/2 year?!? Where has the time gone to?) He has already worn it out to town a few times and has to show everyone the bow tie and vest and awesome welt pockets. The pattern for the Art Museum features these awesome welt pockets (the pattern takes you through step by step on how to make these) and has lovely crisp darts on the front of the vest and the back of the pants. These pants are so wonderfully made too! They look so professionally made after I finished them, he loves them as much as I do too. I see a few more of these in Prince C future.
Yep he even loves the belt in the back too. :-) (he insisted he needed the belt too)
This dress is such a quick sweet sew. I love the two colored fabric and the skirt on this one. This is one of those patterns that was on my to try list for a few years now so I was more than excited to get and sew it!
I love the vintage style of the sleeves and cuffs and the under skirt peeking out from the over skirt. I did pick some of my favorite colors for the dress and surprisingly Sweet pea loves them just as much as I do. The wonderful thing this pattern too is that it has a matching pattern doll pattern. The pattern fits both her American Girl 18" doll and her Bitty baby 15" doll too.
Sweet pea really loves the doll dress!
