Easter Knot Apron Dress

Last Saturday, we had our very first Easter egg hunt. It was very last minute since we found out about it on Friday. I had no idea that Easter was only a week away. I've had this cute Easter bunny fabric for a couple weeks that I wanted to use for Isabelle's Easter dress so I figured that I had better make her the dress for the egg hunt so she could get a couple of weekends to wear it.

I decided to stay up on Friday night to make her a dress. After much searching online, I finally found a tutorial that I wanted to use HERE. Since I'm a novice sewer, I really find online tutorials to be pretty easy and straightforward for me. This tutorial was perfect for me. The only major problem I had was remembering how to do buttonholes again since the last time I did a buttonhole was in junior high school. The buttonholes still came out messed up, but luckily, the knots hide them.

I made the 4/5 size from the tutorial and decided to criss-cross the back instead since it was slightly too large on Isabelle who only wears a size 3 now. I figured it would always be better to be slightly too big than to be too small. The length was great though. It came down to her mid-calf which looked great.

It took me about a good handful of hours to complete this dress, but I love it and I will definitely be using this tutorial again for future dresses.
