Easter Dress 2012

I haven't had a lot of sewing time the past couple weeks but I was able to get this sweet dress finished up for my girl.
Easter dress, Simplicity 3511
The pattern is Simplicity 3511, in size 3 with just a little length added by not doing the full 5/8" seam allowance when I sewed on the bottom eyelet band. I got the Oliver + S fabric at the amazing Hancock's of Paducah remnant table when we were passing through on our drive to Florida last year. And I had the eyelet remnant on hand, but not enough for lining the yoke, so I just used white muslin for that. I still have to put the buttons on but other than that it's done.

Here's something funny we saw the other day in Seattle:

It's an Angry Bird ready to be launched off the Space Needle. A giant Angry Bird. Photo credit to my 11 year old. :)
Hope you're having a good Monday!
