Today I’m thinking about spring dresses because Easter is just around the corner. With only a few weeks until it’s here, now is the time to start planning if you haven’t already. I’m here to stir your imagination with some ready-to-wear examples for spring dresses as well as one skirt thrown into the mix. I’ve rounded up quite a few ideas that are brimming with inspiration so you can sew-it-yourself with Oliver + S. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed searching for these beauties!
1) Do you have a special occasion on the calendar? Dress her up in something similar to this pretty dress. Recreate the look by turning the Butterfly Blouse into a dress. Or try lengthening the School Bus T-shirt into a dress and add lace flutter sleeves.
2) Stitch a dress like this that she’s sure to love. Sew a Library Dress for a similar look. We also have a tutorial on using a knit fabric for the Library Dress. Or maybe try the Hopscotch Dress pattern?
7) How about a skirt instead? Give her twirl power with a springy yellow colored Swingset Skirt. Put drawstrings on both sides of the skirt and how about some tassels at the ends of the drawstrings too?
12) Using the box pleats tutorial, sew a pretty floral Fairy Tale Dress and pair it with an Easter hat or bonnet. This outfit will be perfect for visiting the Easter Bunny, an Easter egg hunt, or Easter brunch at church.
For little girls, size 4 and under, don’t forget about matching Seashore Bloomers under the dresses, wouldn’t that be darling?
I’m certainly feeling inspired and I hope you are too.
