How was your Easter weekend? Ours was rainy… but aside from that we had a very nice Easter with wonderful church service and fun food with friends and family…
When I say rainy I’m not kidding- we are at 317% of normal rainfall for April. It pretty much started raining on Friday and hasn’t stopped since then.
In the 5 minutes on Easter Sunday that it was not raining, I rushed the kids outside to get some photos of them in their Easter duds..
As you can see it was a highly successful photo shoot…
I think they were all going a little stir crazy from the excessive rain.
I did manage to snap a few photos of my daughter in her Easter dress.
It’s Oliver + S School photo dress pattern made out of pink seersucker with some lime green accents.
I was going for a “updated” 80′s preppy look- I’m not sure if it worked or not, at 11 pm Saturday night I was regretting the green, but when I saw her wearing it Sunday I was happy with it.
I think the green pops added a little bit of fun detail to the dress, and oh my- I love the gathered collar on this pattern!!
This is my first time with an Oliver +S pattern and I must say that I was VERY pleased. If you are a new sewer I would HIGHLY recommend the patterns as they are very detailed and easy to follow.
I even added a bright green zipper to the back. First time with an invisible zipper but it was NOT HARD! I always psyche myself out and think things will be harder than they are.
Oh- I did not forget about this month’s theme of “home”… I’ve just got 4 projects started and am waiting on good weather to finish them. It’s not supposed to stop raining until Thursday here. We luckily are escaping the flooding, but many in our area are not… The Ohio river is expected to reach it’s highest level in 15 years. I’m sure many living in the Ohio River Valley could use some extra prayers this week.
