Dress/Shrug FO

I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the Easter ensemble - here is the dress/skirt combo - please ignore the funny hand position - I think I was smoothing the front of the dress when the shutter snapped (I used the delay with the camera sitting on the Man's desk - hence no head either)...

...and the completed Circular Shrug with its Stuff Mart button. I searched through all of the antique stores for the perfect button but couldn't find it - and I was so sure that I would find one that I sort of waited 'til the last minute and then wound up having to rush to Stuff Mart on Saturday to get one - it's OK but I'm still on the lookout for the nice pearly brooch/button that I wanted...

Pattern here:


  1. i love the dress! and the shrug! and i can just picture the sort of button you want . . . i'll keep my eye open for one, too. :)

  2. aren't you precious? i'm glad it runs in the family...hehehehe

    love, k

  3. Very nice! Maybe Karen can find a button for you now. E

  4. Wow your outfit has come up amazing.

    MY mum made me a patch work handbag last year and I am also in search for the perfect button for it.

  5. your outfit looks lovely on you! hope your easter was very blessed!

    {the shrug is amazing - i've been wanting to make something like that for my girls for autumn - but maybe it will have to be for spring at this point!}
