The World's most perfect pattern for Easter

If you are the kind of person who likes to sew up something special for Easter - look no further! This is probably the cutest thing I've made Lyla ever. I know I say that a lot, but Made for Mermaids just keeps coming out with adorable things...

The Sutton Top and Dress releases today and its so perfect on my cute toddler. But switch up your fabric and styling and suddenly it looks fab on tweens - seriously its like magic.  I made Lyla the Top version and paired it with the Evie Shorts, also from Made for Mermaids.

Sutton is a circle skirt, gathered peplum top or dress with princess seams in the front, which are incredibly adorable, not to mention perfect for adding lace, trim, piping, or even contrast side panels. I added some vintage lace trim that my mom passed down to me years ago and I'm still obsessing over how sweet and vintage it makes the whole thing look.

Its not an incredibly quick sew, making and attaching all the bias ties takes the longest, but the overall look is so beautiful that its one of the items you want to keep forever and give it to your baby when they're all grown up. 

If you want to make it quicker though, you could buy bias tape, or make the sleeveless option. You could also make the sleeve with an elastic casing to close it off instead of ties. 
I got both of my fabrics from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. The Floral is a cotton lawn and the gingham is a shirting. The light weight cotton lawn makes it so light and airy, but it looks amazing in a stiffer cotton too, especially in the dress length. It gives the skirt a beautiful full circle perfect for twirling!

I wish I could have gotten photos outside in some beautiful spring air but as the weather decided to dump snow on us instead, studio photos it is...luckily she's just cute no matter what ;)

The pattern is on sale through Sunday for $7 so grab it here and get a head start on Easter Sewing!
