Molly looks like she could be the Leader of the Easter Parade!

I carved out some time for sewing this weekend and no one was happier than Molly! She really does love to model dresses for me… actually for YOU! :o)

I started with a Bunny Bear pattern that I bought quite a few years ago. Here is the link to it in Nann’s Etsy shop. I DID modify it… cutting the bodice piece, and sewing it straight across instead of bringing it to that point in the front… I added darts in the back, I used different sleeves and left the back open all the way to the hem.

I added a soft pink extension of fabric in between the bodice and the gored skirt… just to break it up since it was a busy print.

Molly likes the dress, saying it makes her have a “nice figure!” (What’s she doing thinking about figures?) :o)

“1940’s” puffed sleeves were added because Molly said I had to!

The back is open to the hem and I think there are 5 sets of snaps…

The capelet looks very nice with it and truly is a perfect color match!

I think I would have liked this as a young girl…

Molly found the pink shoes she wants to wear, but I didn’t have time to make her any socks or thigh highs yet… any thoughts on which you’d like to see?

These few scraps are all I have left of this really pretty fabric. I probably bought 4 yards of it years ago and have made quite a few dresses from it…even some little girls dresses that I sold at our Farmer’s Market.

I haven’t decided whether to make a hairbow or something different. I don’t think I have any more of that blue wool felt either, so it might have to be a simple hair bow or a pink or blue ribbon.

Well, that’s it for today.
I hope you enjoyed this set, so far…

Things certainly are “hopping” with Ten Ping’s “Year of the Rabbit” dress set… If you haven’t seen it yet, you can click on the picture at the right side bar or click HERE.

See you tomorrow,
