Clara Dress – Filles a Maman

 Several months ago I responded to a post on Facebook from the talented Mel Henry of Filles a Maman! (Check out her shop!!!)
When I saw the Clara Dress I thought it was a perfect dress pattern for Eva Mae!
I started sewing it with the pretty swiss dot fabric I bought at JoAnn’s
and knew that it would be the perfect Easter dress! 
I wish I could say that I sewed Christian’s Easter outfit too….
it was a budget mama moment from Ross – $12 for a 4 piece suit!
She recieved so many compliments from family and friends at church!  I think paired with the adorable Easter hat she looked like a sweet little Parisian Princess! 
Isn’t this the best picture?!  I love how she’s looking at herself while singing and playing piano!  Maybe she’ll be the next Nadia Boulanger? (only French female musician I can think of off the top of my head!)
The pattern is written in French and English and VERY easy to understand and sew!  I enjoyed piecing the pattern together and watching how everything was constructed as I followed the instructions!
This picture is one of my faves – I may have gone a bit overboard in Photoshop but it looks like it could be in a magazine!
The one change I did make was instead of a casing for elastic at the sleeve I decided to shir the hem with some elastic thread!  It worked out nicely! 

As you can see from some of the pictures, the bubbles that Grandmama bought for Easter were a HUGE hit!!!  Her face was priceless when that big bubble machine went off!
Our family had such a blessed Easter and hope you did too!!!
I’m off to start sewing up some new projects to debut soon!  Hopefully this week I’ll have a post with what you’ll expect to see over the next few months on the blog!
