Pink Bunnies for Lili

Sweet and simple
and oh, so classic.

For Lili's Easter dress,
I used New Look 6118.

However, I altered the pattern,
because I can never just sew the 
pattern the way it is!

I altered the back of the pattern
so that I could use 4 buttons in a square.

The lower two buttons are covered by the bow.

The directions of the pattern
show the back placket being folded back on itself
over the lining. 

I felt this was uneccesary
and looked unfinished
on the inside. 

Changing the construction the way
I have done this,
makes for a more interesting
and finished back.

And all the seams are inclosed
the way I prefer.

I simply adore the silhouette!

The fabric is a precious baby bunny print
by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse.

Ahnalin picked it out for darling Lili.

I can hardly wait to see little Lili wear it
on Easter Sunday!

Happy Sewing 
and Happy Holy Week!
