Did you know that back in the early 19th century wearing new clothes at Easter time meant good luck for the remainder of the year? I don’t know about you but I could use a little luck and we all could use a new dress, right?

Hi! I’m new to sewing, but I’m going to try my hand at this. I don’t have a you tube vlog so I will post my pic on Instagram. Wish me luck!
Good Luck Alencia! Happy to have sewers of all levels participating in this event.
I will participate. Maybe my sister too.
Yay!!! I love a good Easter dress (still a huge tradition in my family!), and I’ll be participating! I’ll post at http://www.flashbacksummer.com
Oh man. I’ll need a hat, too, of course!
Yes! Every good Easter Dress needs to be paired with an Easter bonnet 😉
Yay! I’m in. Super exciting!!
Ooh, I’ve just got a new pattern which will be perfect for an Easter dress, just got to get organised 🙂

I would love to join in! I’ll be posting on my instagram which is bubbas.girl.
Thank you so much for the opportunity and inspiration!
I’m glad I can help inspire you to get out there and make something 😉 That’s what Akram’s Ideas is all about.
This sewalong looks great, love those vintage patterns , oh for a waist that size , did they not have easter eggs then ?
Am going to dig through my dress patterns and join in.
Haha 😀 The first Cadbury’s Easter eggs debuted in 1905, I guess either chocolate was more expensive then; not $5.00 for a full bag like it is now *lol* I need me my chocolate fix 😉
Hi, my name is Melody, but on YouTube it’s freetosewandcraft1. I will post on YouTube and instagram. I just found out about this from natural Dane. I haven’t picked my pattern yet. My daughter is getting married a week after Easter, so I am planning to make something appropriate for both occasions.
Hi Melody, glad you are joining in the fun. Also, it’s so nice to hear you’re going to get dual use out of your dress. Can’t wait to see what you make 😉
It has to be the blue!!!
Thanks! Blue seems to be the popular choice 😉
I will be joining adding a manly twist to the EASTER outfits I will show on my Instagram juliancreates and julian_cordell and my YouTube Julian Creates
How fun, so glad that this sewalong is filled with so many diverse projects. 😀
Late start, but it looks like I’m in too. 😀
Nonsense, it’s not late at all. To tell the truth I haven’t really started myself, so there’s plenty of time right 😉
Hello! I have just discovered this sewing challenge – please count me in. I already have the fabric and most of the notions organised and I may even have a super bonnet on stand-by. Looking forward to seeing all the fabulous creations everyone makes. Happy sewing everyone 🙂
ooh I love the idea of an Easter bonnet 😉 Glad that you’re joining the fun.
I like the pink. But, make what you like.
Thanks. I like them both, but it looks like blue is going to be the winner 😉
I’m done! Here’s my 3-hour Lynn Mizono dress, from Vogue 1312. https://thedementedfairy.wordpress.com/2017/03/21/mizono-in-action-v1312-again/
Count me in on the lovely fun! I have two projects in works for this, and they’ll be either on my blog over at “seamracer.com” or on my Instagram page, at ”seamracer”.
Thanks for joining Kelly. Can’t wait to see what you make
I am in…You tube and instgram…That’s Sew Sandra…
Glad you’re participating. Will be checking out your channel
This is such a fun idea! I’ll be doing my best to have a dress finished in time and I can’t wait to see what everyone else is making.
Thanks for joining I’m excited to see everyone’s makes too
Here’s mine [apologies if I already shared this, I really can’t remember with all the sewing I’m doing!] Vogue 1312, Spring Greens collection. https://wordpress.com/posts/thedementedfairy.wordpress.com
I’m still sewing- another Vogue make, this time 1477 in some remnants of jersey leftover from another recent make. All part of my Spring Greens! https://thedementedfairy.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/even-more-spring-greens/
I’m in! I will be posting over at lizsews.com
Excited to have you participating, Liz 😉
