Easter Dress Tutorial

  
This is actually a flower girl dress I made.. Here is a tutorial on how to make this simple dress quick and really easy. Once you get this method down you can turn out this little frock in about 30 minutes. You could make a new one every Sunday.




Pattern - M-McCall, S-Simplicity,B -Butterick, V-Vouge

I cut down the neck line and ditched the zipper or buttons. Place Center back on fold.

  4. You are my new best friend :D. I'm getting my sewing machine in March, and last time i sewed I was in high school (I was 13/15 yrs old), and never touched a machine since. I cant wait to try out a few things, and The videos are so much easier to understand. Thanks so much for sharing :D

  7. I went right out and bought the M6020 pattern! They were on sell at joanna for $2 immediately after you posted this. So I bought her size and the size up. Perfect timing! Looking forward to giving my little bit a new outfit often this summer! Between this and pillow dresses, she will be set for the hot South Georgia summer. Thank you for the tutorial and the video. I know I will reference the video often!

  8. This is gorgeous!! What did you put under the flower girl dress to make it so puffy? I am hoping to make something similar as DD's easter dress!

  9. It just a crinoline but a tutu would work.

  10. Do you have any suggestions for nixing the zipper while keeping the waist big enough to fit shoulders and arms through? I used your tutorial to make Butterick 4718 in size 3 and it turned out beautifully, dd just had a hard time getting through the waist. I could make it a little larger but I also don't want to ruin the line of the dress. I'm planning on adding a few layers of gathered tulle over the skirt to make it a flower girl dress for my sister's upcoming wedding. Dress will be satin with tulle over the skirt. I just want her to be able to get in and out of it on her own.

  11. Great Tuto discovered just in time, I am sewing a similar dress today and was wondering how to hide the sewing inside... I might do French sewing for the inside of the skirt... Thanks a billion! Sophie
