March '09 Inspirations

Doesn't this special little
yoke dress just shout

The pattern is Ginger Snaps'
"Collars for Girls" using
the pinafore collar.  This
pattern comes in sizes
1 - 6 and has many collar

The dress fabric is the London
Lawn cotton print from
Moda - a quilt fabric
no less! 




The pinafore collar features an Easter basket
and Easter eggs using a shadow applique technique.
The base fabric is cotton pima wale pique, and the
overlay is a sheer cotton fabric, Vanessa voile from
Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  The lace is an off-white
from Capitol Imports.


Here's a back view of
the dress and collar.  I
modified the collar to
allow the lace to go up
the center back.

It's so "frilly"!




Here are some close-ups of the Easter basket
and the Easter eggs.

and directions for the shadow applique. 

Happy Easter!!
