Easter Dress

Oh Easter, such a relaxing holiday :)  We were blessed with a wonderful day full of family, Conference and sweets :) Who could ask for more?  I have a confession though, I maybe heard one talk of conference, it was really hard to juggle everything.  I hope to sit down with Charlie and fully absorb the messages sometime this week...

The day before Easter I scrambled around like crazy.  I couldn't find a dress pattern for Autumn for her Easter dress.  I was tempted to just go to the store and buy one, but I am stubborn, so I decided to just wing it.  Well... Wing it I did.  I free handed a pattern and prayed that I got the guess measurements right.  I was up to 5 in the morning working on this... I just kept sewing and making up stuff as I went along.  At least it fit :) Heres how it turned out:

I didn't get any pictures of Liam because he was sleeping at first, then my batteries decided to die... But I promise myself that I will get some good pictures of my little man soon :) Hope everyone had a good Easter!

How cute is that dress? I love it, and that you just "winged it", it's darling. And she looks too cute in it.
