easter dress no. 3

i don't know what it is about spring that always makes me itch to sew. easter is the only holiday that i have succeeded in always making macy a new dress for. this year i wanted to go a little less traditional in color and style. i love all the fluffy dresses for spring that are out right now, but that's all there is. so i chose one of my favorite amy butler prints and made a little sassy a-line dress. and macy had no problem flaunting her cute little legs in it. i actually used a simplicity pattern but really only for the bodice and sleeves. then i made up the rest. it seems like macy is getting harder and harder to photograph the older she gets!
