Yesterday Liz shared her darling Easter Dress (I am in serious love), and I am sharing Hannie’s today (which is kind of old news around these parts—I went with simple).
Her dress is made from a cotton-linen blend of fabric that was thrifted (a whole roll of 10 yards of lovely fabric for $5—-I am thinking it was originally meant for drapery lining). The dress is made from The Vintage Holiday Dress Tutorial. I forgot to put her crinoline under it for the picture—so you’ll have to picture it a bit puffier (and cuter).
We made a wrist cuff together a couple of weeks ago which I blogged about HERE….and I finished up her last accessory today. I spray painted a metal headband from Hobby Lobby the same robin’s egg blue as the sash and then made the “bird nest” to match the cuff. I was skeptical that I could spray paint the headband, but it totally worked very well with just one coat. I did spray one clear coat over the top to keep it from chipping. (YAY for spray paint….)
And for the boys, well they got some new bow ties.
It still remains to be seen if a certain 9 and a half will wear it….
The rest of their clothes (although Aaron just has a white shirt and tan slacks) came from sales at Gymboree.
Do you do matchy-matchy for Easter?
I know some people don’t love it…..but for Easter…..I totally do.
(I know I am weird. I just think it is so cute….and this may be the last year I can do it. Sniff. Sniff. SO…I am totally going with it.)
