sewing for easter: vintage inspired outfit

Easter is on its way! For me, that meant time to dig out those cute fabrics that I did not use last year. Let’s be honest, a fabric with rabbits on it, needs to become an Easter outfit.

Me and my girl both love vintage inspired clothing. She loved the storybook blouse and dress so I decided to sew her a new one. Femke loves a feminine touch and I always love sewing those extra little details.

The blouse has 4 pleats on the front and gathered elastic sleeve bottoms. At the beginning I was a bit afraid the pleats and the bold fabrics would be to much. But I think it worked out really well.

At the back the blouse is closed with an elastic loop and look at that cute matching bunny button I found.

The pinafore is a pattern that I found in the poppy magazine Edition 10. It closes with a zipper in the side seam. It took me some time to figure out how to do that for the first time but the skirt is really easy to put on now for Femke.

The suspenders are secured with buttons and crossed at the back. Instead of cutting the suspenders to the right size I made an extra pair of buttonholes. That way the skirt can grow with her.

And yes I think it won’t take long before we need to use the second pair of buttonholes. There was not enough fabric left to lengthen the skirt. So sew those easter fabrics now, because kids grow way to fast and maybe you will not have enough fabric left next year!
