Easter Dress for Gabriela - 2018

Last April, when Gabriela was 8 months old, I made her a pretty little Easter dress with some yellow jersey and delicate cotton print. It also had a tulle underskirt.

I've decided to make this our annual tradition - a custom-made TrapkeybyGaia Easter dress for Gabster. This year, my sweetness is 20 months old, she's walking, talking, singing and I wanted a more sophisticated look. And I tried to make a dress that is perfect for Easter but neutral enough so she could also wear it on other occasions - just a pretty spring party dress.

For this dress, I used the Diva Bunny Girl Easter Machine Applique Design by StitchAwayApplique that I found on Etsy. I chose the yellow and white floral printed Tutti Fruitti textured cotton. Then I added some decorative buttons in the back and a lovely yellow trim that I found at Pacific Fabrics.

Think it turned out pretty well, though I probably should have used the 5'' x 7'' applique size, instead of 4'' x 4''.

Since the dress is sleeveless (I did it using the burrito method), Gaby is wearing a light white Gap cardigan, it's still pretty chilly in Seattle :)

Interesting tip that I picked up this year: to gather the skirt, I used two rows of wide stitches instead of only one. I then pulled on both threads to create my gathers, secured each end with a couple knots, and then attached the skirt to the bodice. The two rows gave me a lot more control over the gather and I ended up with a lovely evenly gathered and very full skirt - exactly what I wanted. 

Happy Easter! 

Here's last year's dress :)
