Archive for the ‘Easter Skirts ’12’ Category

I have the mindset that at Easter and Christmas my family should all match.  This doesn’t mean we wear identical clothes (I’m not really into mommy and me outfits) but we are all in the same colors and hues, or as close to it as possible.  You know, incase anyone is wondering if we belong with each other.  This Easter’s color choices were based off of the material I bought at The Scarlet Poppe for my daughter’s skirts…

Yellow, White & Blue

Gabrielle chose a tiered skirt because she loves long dresses and skirts! I totally had to wing this one because my computer crashed last week when I needed to sew this together. For those of you who are interested in sewing one for yourself click this image for a DIY link.

Miranda, on the left, chose a gathered two layer rectangle skirt, claiming, "It's so princessy!" This was by far the easiest of the three skirts I made. I couldn't find a tutorial for the whole ensemble but you can find simple instructions for a rectangle skirt and if you click on this photo it will bring you to a tutorial on how to do the gathering.

Elizabeth, who is only two, had no say in what skirt design she wanted but seemed to love her bustled skirt! I couldn't find a tutorial that fit exactly how I wanted to make her skirt so embellished the tutorial that is linked to this photo. I'm pretty sure I will be making some of these to sell if you are interested in one for your little girl let me know.

Isn't that the cutest little tushie?!

My handsome little man! I made absolutely nothing for him but he requested a shirt with Easter eggs on it. Bad mommy for not making him one! Though he didn't seem to mind. His shirt and pants are from Old Navy & Shoes are The Children's Place.

After several blinks, Pierce choking Elizabeth, undies showing and several other mishaps we finally got a good photo of our little rugrats!

How I Did Yellow, White & Blue…

Blue & White Striped Jacket - Old Navy, Yellow Blouse - The Buckle, White Pants, White Heeled Sandals & Jewelry - Maurices

I wasn’t planning on debuting this outfit, hence the reason I’m not looking absolutely spectacular in any of the photos, LOL.  But since my hubby snapped a few pictures of just me I thought I’d put them out there incase anyone felt inspired to replicate it.

In all honesty, I was feeling less than thrilled with this outfit.  I had such a hard time finding something that went with the rest of my families outfits and put this together Easter morning.  I really wanted a pretty 60’s dress with a full skirt but couldn’t find anything I liked that went with the yellow, blue and white color scheme.  Okay, pitty party over.

We had a really great Easter!  It’s one of my favorite holiday’s.  I always cry with joy and thankful to my Lord and Savior for giving his life for me and all of you!

Happy Easter, from The Schroeder Family!
