Easter Sewing (9)

Mentioning a different dress for Lex made me think it's okay do do these posts out of order sometimes. I'm not quite finished with Lena's less casual dress, but the actual Easter day dresses for the two older girls are complete and so I will show them off now, one by one.
I went way off the cotton prints on this one. It is a linen with a fancy jacquard ribbon around the base.
Surprise!  The colors are my new favorite combo of turquoise and red.  (and pink, tan, sage)
Isn't that just the coolest ribbon you ever did see?  I purchased it while in SF at The Ribbonrie.

There is also a turquoise ribbon tie in the back of the dress that matches
 the hand stitched trim around the neckline,
and the waistline,
and the collar of the
matching jacket that can be worn with this simple, classic, little dress.


  1. i love the simple stuff. & i bet it was darling on miss lena kate!

  2. ps the hand stitching is incredible

  3. I agree with Anita. (See, I'm not the only one who sez so.)
