We had a great lazy Easter. The weather was pretty perfect. After church we headed to my in-laws (yup my whole family and theirs) for a fun lunch and hanging out. When I took the dresses over to the naughties on Friday night L said “I told you I like purple” but then quickly seemed happy with the pink and brown dress.
T who is far more fun to give things to immediately told me how much she liked the dress and how pretty it was and started stripping to try it on. And since the girls’ karate belt testing was the next day they started doing karate in their dresses. It reminded me of some of my fantasy books where the little princesses are skilled and deadly fighters. Okay maybe I’m the only one who thinks that’s awesome but I do.
The girls did a Easter egg hunt on Saturday with our church but sincw we thought they weren’t going to make it because of the belt testing we had already prepped a hunt for Sunday. Also the bunny apparently made an appearance at their house. After the Sunday hunt L turned to me and said “when are we going to your house”. Knowing how her little brain works I explained that the Easter bunny was done for the year and he was not going to my house since he knew we were going to be at that house for Easter. Oh dear.
And as far as the dresses go. I know I’ve been on a flutter sleeve kick but I like them and these picky girls aren’t fans of sleeves that touch their arms so it works. I’m pretty happy with how the dresses turned out and the girls seemed to like them. I’ve been wanting to do a bustle back dress in my lack of time I did a pseudo bustle thing that I think ended up being even better as far as function goes. I took a bunch of processes pictures so I hope to eventually write a tutorial of sorts for these dresses.
