Neapolitan Easter Dresses {Cheyenne}

Ready for round 2 of Neapolitan Easter Dresses?
I'd say that this one is my favorite, but they all match the girls' style so much that it would be like picking a favorite kid, right?
What can I say about this sweet, strawberry-blond, curly, freckled, Fashonista?
This girl loves clothes.  And she has her own sense of style.
She picks out her own outfits and most of the time they are trendier than what I would have put together for her.
Needless to say, her dress had to be just right.
So when I started a skirt for her that didn't make her eyes sparkle with excitement, I scratched it and moved on to this little number. 
Another thing to be said for Chey, she has NO patience for taking pictures.
As you can see from this next picture...

Come on!  Snap the picture so I can go twirl in my new dress!
 I pulled out the Accessories shirt that was her big sister's last year, and made a sweet "corsage" out of a couple of dollar store daisies I had on hand and some tulle.  It buttons right onto the shirt, so it is easy to remove if my wild-child happens to spill strawberry milk down her white shirt...
Can you guess what I made the slip from?
Curtains!  Ha!
My mom gave me some white curtains that had never been used.
It was so easy! I just used the casing that was already there for the curtain rods.
And the skirt wasn't hard either.  In fact, this was the easiest of the 4 dresses.
If you are interested in a tutorial, let me know.  I will whip the Diva up another skirt.


  1. I would love the tutorial on how to make this skirt. Thank you!

    1. I was just looking at that skirt, thinking I need to make another one. Keep your eye open for a tutorial soon. And thanks for stopping by!
