I'm gathering my supplies and making plans for E's Easter dress. I haven't done a Christmas or Easter dress for her for over a year and its about time.
I found this lace curtain last year at Goodwill and picked it up - I should have bought all of them in hindsight. Oh well. I can always look for more if this works out.
Last night I introduced it to some fabric dye. Seeing that the curtain is 100% polyester, they didn't get along real well.
Can't really tell, can you?
Its a little more noticeable against the purple.
Anyway, I picked up this pattern at another local thrift store for $.50! I think its so sweet with the square neckline and bell sleeves. I will definitely have to lengthen it. We are below the knee people around here.
Still in factory folds. This is a big deal for vintage pattern collectors. It also means I have to carefully unfold, trace and then refold.
I paid less than the pattern cost originally! I found the receipt inside the envelope.
There are a bunch of things I'd love to get done before Easter for the whole family. But realistically - we'll have to wait and see. Here's to a productive weekend!
