Easter dresses 1998

My sister (Beth) and I saw a beautiful pink striped dress in the “Sew Beautiful” magazine that inspired us to make these Easter dresses.  We used Vogue pattern 8608 (sizes 2-3-4).  I got real creative and made collars out of doilies.  I finished the pinafores for my girl’s dresses a couple weeks after Easter.  Oh well, that’s the way it goes sometimes.

I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
