Sometime shortly after the Christmas holidays, I will choose the fabric for Charlotte's Easter dress. In this way I plan to have several months in order to sew her dress without too much hurrying around. Since her dress this year did not involve smocking and Easter was in late April, I knew it would not need to be a rushed job. The fabric was Westminister/Free Spirit. I used a simple pattern adaption with lots of fabric in the skirt and a cumberbund.
I treasure these days of girly childhood, rummaging through the lettuce patches and running through the green grass with their dresses hiked up or tucked under their arms for ease.
Like all females, they instinctly make do.
