Easter Sunday/ The Big Reveal

So here are the much anticipated pictures of the dresses! I definately took on too much this week and the house suffered a bit and the girls got a little bored being stuck at home (but who wants to go out during breakup anyway???) but I finished two Easter baskets and 3 dresses this week. I ended up not loving the dresses I made for the girls. The pattern was just okay and would probably make a cuter shirt than dresses but I think they are alright. I had to alter Macy's a little because it looked more like a nightgown than dress but Kylie's turned out pretty cute. I was also thrilled with the way that my dress turned out. I had been very hesitant to make any clothing for myself because I am picky about my clothes and I didn't want to look like some frumpy, hippie mom that makes her own everything (it looks alright on some people...just not for me). I do like my dress, but I made it a tad too tight and even after lengthening it from the pattern three inches, I would still prefer it to be longer but for a first attempt, I am pretty proud. It is fully lined and I loved the compliments I got on it today at church and most people had no idea that I had made it until someone else told them. That's good- again I don't want to look like I am in something homemade. Anyway, enough talk, here are some pictures-
