E's Easter Dress was finished well in time for Easter. Friday night, even! I did make a matching purse Saturday, I'll post it tomorrow.
I even thought ahead of time to use the finished edge of the lace for the bottom - so no hemming. I only then had to hem the bottom edge of the sleeves. A couple months ago I invested in an invisible zipper foot for my sewing machine. One of the best investments I've made in a long time! Invisible zips from now on!
I'd like to make the pattern again in a more flowing fabric. Perhaps with the lace edgings. I'm sure I've got something out in the Stash I could use. The top might be cute done in a knit. Putting a back zipper in a girl's casual top seems a little much.
