Simplicity 3513 - spring fun!

This is the new dress I made for my girls - I just bought 20 new patterns and am trying to make as many of them as possible this weekend while it is too cold to do anything else!

Super cool pattern -- no zipper, inserting sleeves, or buttons, but still not in the Easy category because of the lined rounded yoke - it has pockets too! Never before have I made them a dress with pockets in the side seams and it was suprisingly easy.

This pattern has a cute little 3/4 sleeve jacket with it and I plan to make them jackets with a coordinating stripe or solid hot pink pique (I haven't decided which yet) I guess I'm off to make the big sister version!

Here are the fabric choices - the more I look at them, I think I'll make the solid pink jacket and then some other striped dresses so they can wear the jackets with either dress in the spring when the weather is iffy...suggestions?

That fabric is fantastic! And I really like that pattern. The yoke is so trendy! Very chic.
