Lala's Tulip Dress

Do you remember this picture?
It is from when I cleaned my sewing room.
I explained that the pile of satins was magically going to transform onto Easter dresses.
It did !
I stayed up until 2:45am and then got up at seven to make Baubi's skirt.
I wish I could say they were all finished, but like I just said...
I wish.
Gowyn's dress and Baubi's skirt still need flowers, so until then I will show you Lala's

I called it the tulip dress.
See how the skirt crosses in the front to look like an upside down tulip.

How can you have an Easter dress with out a big ol' bow in the back?
I can't, I have tried and it is just not the same.

I even made the sleeves look like tulips.

The finishing touch was this giant flower,
it looks more like a chrysanthemum than a tulip.
I figure a flower dress is a flower dress.

She was so excited about this dress she would come up and pet it.
She could hardly wait for Sunday to come.

We are going to take pictures of their bodies in their dresses later this week,
the weather is suppose to be better by then.
I will be sure to show you again, with an actual body inside.

Let me know if you want a tutorial on the flower.

Tomorrow Baby sister's dress.
