The shirt is a purchased "Imp" shirt, but I'm not happy with the collar, so we'll see. The shortalls I made from a cotton "faux linen" that perfectly co-ordinates with a dress shirt I bought for Davy. I think this color screams "spring" even though our weather is still firmly yelling "winter"!!
I wanted an embroidery design that was Easter-ish without being limited to just that occasion. I was happy to find this one that is reminiscent of Peter Rabbit in the carrot patch. I love how it stitched out- the fur has whorls that make it look very real. I has never used one by this digitizer before, but I was delighted with the stitch-out. You can find it here.
I started with this 1940s Advance pattern. I knew when I bought it that it was missing the directions. So, I was working with just the cover photo and unprinted tissue pieces. I guess I am getting better at de-ciphering patterns, because it went together like a dream- even the side openings, which I was unsure of. I love the low-rise shortall front. The straps are a bit short, so I'll have to make an adjustment there.
We had fun coloring eggs this week! And we enjoy eating them, too! They just taste better when they are so pretty.
