Operation Easter Dress Begins

We came. We shopped. We acquired fabric.

Yesterday Emelie, Hunter and I went in search for the perfect fabric for the girls' special clothes for Resurrection Sunday (Yes, Hunter drew the short end of this trip. Everyone else was at the AWANA Grand Prix). We were hoping to make good on Em's prophecy from last year to go Hawaiian ('cause nothin' says tropical like early spring in Indiana!).

We found some lovely batik fabric that looked like it would fit the bill.
The little girls' dresses will come from this fantastic book:
Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits

The big girls' wrap skirts will be from this favorite:
Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make with Fabulous Fabrics
