A pink balloon and Easter dress

I would love to have more time to spend improving my photography skills. Oh, how I just adore so many of the photographs I see on other people's blogs. I could easily imagine how the below picture could be a gorgeous shot. It will remain a goal of mine to take great pictures someday....

This linen dress above was made from the Flower Girl Dress from Weekend Sewing, which is by far the easiest dress I've ever sewn and enormously popular with my girl. I added a fabric flower from this tutorial. Ever so easy and fun to make.
Easter did not come and go without a new dress for Katya, but nothing for myself and I felt more than a tad sad when I realized that my son's dressy shirt was noticibly short in the sleeves. I vow to make them matching (but not overly matchy....I'm in love with these) outfits for mother's day (only a week away!) because, quite honestly, I cannot imagine a better present for me than seeing my little guy in a tie. I'm sure there will need to be a bribe of some sort to get him to wear it.
Anyway, the Easter dress below was from this Oliver and S pattern. As usual, it was a pleasure to make. I always learn so much from these patterns. They are so well thought out and engineered and I think they are well worth their hefty price.
