There is a woman I follow on Instagram. Her name is Eunice Asamoah. Her dresses are amazing and colorful and she looks fantastic in all of them. She is a fashion designer and custom dressmaker in addition to all the sewing she does for herself. She is beautifully doing all of the things that I want to do and she is an inspiration to me.
I’m going to give you all of her links so you can check out her work.

Anyway, in March I reached out to her and said, wouldn’t it be fun if we did a little collaboration together? And she asked what I had in mind and I said what if we both start with the same pattern and make a dress for Easter. We can do whatever we want fabric wise and altering the pattern or whatever and talk about it while we are doing it for the whole week. And she said ok and I did a dance and then we started fabric shopping.
So this is the pattern we chose together. Partly because it’s pretty and partly because we both already owned it. And the bonus is that it’s one of my Make Nine Challenge dresses!
And here is the fabric.
The fabric is from Hawthorne Supply Co. which has become one of my favorite places to get interesting fabrics. It has been washed and still needs to be ironed before I cut it out. The goal is to get it all cut out today so that I can have it finished by Friday with final photos on Friday and a happy spring dress to wear to church on Easter Sunday.
