I made myself an Easter dress to go along with the kid’s Easter clothes. I had this beautiful blush stretch lace fabric that looked similar to the dress I upcycled for Claire’s Easter dress. I used the Out and About Dress pattern. (The last one I made was a maxi dress.) I took out some of the width from the skirt and added flare. Each piece is lined with a thin teal jersey. It’s a gorgeous fabric that’s too thin to use by itself. It’s the perfect light lining fabric for the lace. And it’s gives the lace a great undertone. I also did a lace neckband which I hated while I sewed it because the knit neckband was really frustrating to sew. But I love how it turned out!

I didn’t face the pockets so it’s a nice pop of teal from the side. A dress with pockets: fantastic!
I really love this dress. It’s so simple so I can wear it alone, but I can dress it up easily too. It’s so comfortable and the skirt is swingy. It’s been great to wear even though I’m finally getting around to posting it.

I think I’ve lost my curly hair. When I was a teenager I had pretty curly hair, and I loved it. I love the beachy, wavy look and really identify with it. I’m realizing now after two kids that my curly hair is straightening out. It doesn’t defuse like it used to and it doesn’t hold a curl like it used to. I’m okay with my hairstyle right now, but I’m constantly mourning my easy, curly hair.
