From-a-Box Easter Egg Girl

Easter Girl

This didn’t start out to dress the daughter as an Easter egg… but turns out, she does look like an Easter egg in this outfit!

I wanted to use The Cottage Mama’s Classic A-Line pattern for a top with a round collar and shorter sleeves, and then wrap it in ribbons.  The daughter had to have pink and purple, so this is the result.

The sleeves are not lined, but the blouse is lined according to the pattern.

Then I used The Cottage Mama’s Vintage Shorts pattern without the ruffles, and wrapped some ric-rac around the hem and the pocket.

Instead of adding the gathers in the sleeve, I made little tucks… I like it!

Next time, I think some interfacing in the front band of the shorts will make the fit better.  But otherwise, once again, the patterns worked up great!

Overall, the outfit is cute, and I am happy with the result – AND she looks like an Easter egg.
