I showed you my Easter dress a little while back. In the pictures, I was wearing a turquoise rosette headband from my shop. Of course (and much to my delight!) the headband had to go and sell right after I took those pictures. So I needed a new headband for Easter.
This time I made three small rosettes by simply rolling and folding the fabric. I also made a more full and fluffy flower by doing a gathering stitch, ruffling the fabric tight and then sewing it all together.
I like the way it turned out!
As a side note about my Easter dress: originally I didn’t sew a lining layer in and planned on just wearing a slip with it. The more I thought about it, though, the less I wanted to have to think about whether or not too much was showing. So I cut another circle skirt, the one just a little longer than the one I used on the dress, and sewed it into the inside seam where the skirt attaches to the waist band. The lining layer (made of the same fabric as the rest of the dress) peeked out by about an inch and a half adding a really fun affect to the skirt! I love the way it turned out and will have to take a picture some time soon to show you! Only problem with the dress was any time a gust of wind came through I felt like Marilyn Monroe trying to keep such a full and lightweight skirt down!
