Easter frocks!!!

I finally completed the Easter clothes for my three grands yesterday. Two white bishops and a jon-jon. While I have a few more years to sew for these precious little girls, I am sad to think this is probably, no likely, the last year to sew this type of garment for my grandson. He is four now and growing up rapidly.
The boy's jon-jon is a pattern by Michie' #117.  You only see one bonnet in the picture, but both girls will have bonnets. The other has already made it home with it's adorable wearer!!! The bonnet design is by  The Old Fashioned Baby.

Oh my word, it is all beautiful! I realized as I delighting in these precious Easter outfits, I have not made a bishop for our baby yet. Oh dear, not enough hours in the day. Sara, just beautiful. They will all be so precious next week in their Easter finery.

Precious and perfect! I hope you are able to get photographs of all of them in their Easter finery! Especially love the bonnet!

Oh, Sara! These little outfits are exquisite! You are so talented. I can just see the little ones decked out in all this splendor. I've just become a grandmother as of last Monday and I'm thinking what kind of Easter outfit I can get for my new little granddaughter! :)
be a sweetie,

Oh my gosh, Sara...how luscious these creations look! You truly are a master(mistress?)craftsman(woman?) LOL

They are just AWESOME & I hope they get lots & lots of photos before they wrinkle them up. :-)

Re the cake yeast...I don't see it often but I do know it has to be refrigerated so look in the section where the milk & eggs are located. I just use the dry stuff.

Wow how pretty! It has been years since I last did some smock work. I do remember I really liked it, even at a very young age :) I never was as good as you though lol. And I don't think I now know how to do it, as it has been at least 35 yrs OUCH .

They are all absolutely gorgeous!
No grandbabies yet, but will hopefully do some "practice" smocking and sewing, so that when we do have grandbabies, my outfits will have been completed :o)

...I am so excited that my Amanda Jane pleater arrived in the mail. Hm...will have to read the operator's instructions.

Blessings & Aloha!

Each time I see an item of yours and I think its the tops, you seem to out do yourself over and over. How precious the children will look. One day when they look back on these photos and see the quality in your work, they will see how much they are loved.
