As y'all know, I love to sew for my darling niece. She is a year old now and we're coming up on her second Easter, so I wanted her to have a new spring wardrobe.
Who doesn't just love seer sucker? I bought this pink striped seer sucker a while back, not really knowing what I wanted to make, but then inspiration hit and this is what I came up with.
I love this minky dot bunny my friend Marianne appliqued for me. I have got to get me an applique/monogram machine especially since my friend is moving far, far away this summer!
I was so thrilled with how this little jumper turned out that I didn't want to wait until Easter to give it to my niece, so I decided to mail it to her. This is where the sad part comes in... I went to the post office and purchased one of those padded envelopes to mail the dress and matching bloomers. As I was addressing the envelope I noticed those "if it fits it ships" boxes and I thought, maybe I should have used one of those instead, but I had already started writing on the envelope and had sealed it shut so I kept what I had. I've mailed outfits in the same type of envelope before and all was well... but that was then. I don't know what happened to the bunny dress after I paid the postage and handed the package over to the post office. It's been well over a week and the package never arrived at my sisters house a mere two hours away. My darling niece will not have a darling bunny dress to wear to the egg hunt and her Auntie Wren is heart broken. :( I've got several more outfits made for the baby, but I will be hand delivering them from now on!
**GOOD NEWS! Since this post, the bunny dress has been delivered! Yay!**
