Easter Sewing Inspiration [for the procrastinator]

I’ll admit it. I’m already going through sewing withdrawal!

But since I haven’t quite figured out how to fit sewing into the new baby schedule [read: what schedule?!] I thought I’d snag some inspiration and ideas for those of you who can sew right now. Especially for those of you who, like I always do, have procrastinated and need to do some quick pre-Easter sewing!

Need an Easter dress for a little girl? I’m loving the new Sunshine Dress from Shwin Designs.
