If you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you’ll know that we’ve decided to sew some Easter outfits this year! Spring is the perfect time for a wardrobe refresh, and Easter just felt like the perfect occasion for our spring outfits to make their debut. I mean, coordinating florals for the whole family? Yes please!
The best part about all of this is that the fabrics we chose are our very own! That’s right, you heard me. The best part is we have the fabric designs available for you to choose from on Spoonflower.com! Did we mention there’s more where these came from? This is just the tip of the iceberg, so get excited.

- The Wilder Gown (Brittany's Dress)
- Tie template
- Toddler jumpsuit
- Buttons or snaps (for the jumpsuit)

Our Custom Fabric
First of all, let’s talk about our custom fabric! Designed by our talented designer, Garet, these repeat patterns lean fully into the florals that are so appropriate for this season. Stay tuned for the official release of our phone cases featuring many of the same patterns and much more! Consider this Easter outfits project an Easter egg for what is to come–it’s going to be GOOD.
Fabric Choices for the Easter Outfits
For the Easter outfits, we decided to go with our Secret Garden print for Brittany’s dress, Block Print in Cream for Felix’s jumpsuit, Block Print in Daffodil for Jasper’s, and Block Print in Periwinkle for Paul’s tie. Since we didn’t have much time before Easter, we took a major gamble and ordered the full amount of fabric before ordering a sample first. To our delight, the fabric was even more beautiful in person than we’d hoped!
Here’s the low down on each outfit:
TIP: Don’t forget to pre-wash your fabric!
Oo la la, this dress turned out absolutely fabulous! We adored the combination of that secret garden print and the flowy tiers of the dress. I mean, what more could you ask for from an Easter dress than pretty florals and a pattern that’s whimsical enough to make you feel like you’ve been transported to the set of Pride and Prejudice? It’s so lovely it makes me want to sew five more! I could honestly gush all day about that secret garden print. The colors blend in such a lovely way at a distance, and up close the details are stunning. Garet really outdid herself on this one!
For the pattern, we went with Friday Pattern Company’s Wilder Gown. It paired perfectly with the secret garden print. The result was honestly jaw-dropping–so beautiful!
How to make your own version of Brittany’s Easter dress
- Start by heading over to our Spoonflower design shop and ordering our Secret Garden print! Follow the guidelines on the dress pattern for yardage requirements. We’d recommend a light cotton poplin for this breezy piece.
- Next, purchase and download the Wilder Gown PDF (or purchase the print version, if you prefer. We chose the PDF because we could instantly download and get sewing).
- Now all you have to do is print and assemble your pattern, following the instructions on the pattern.
- Just follow the step by step instructions on the pattern to make your dress and you’re done!
Paul’s Easter outfit was simple: a tie. He loves skinny ties, so that’s what we went with! It’s surprising how easy it is to make, and looks so classy when it’s done. To make it even easier on you, we have a PDF tie pattern you can use. We loved that periwinkle blue block print pattern. It’s delicate and refined while still having that touch of masculinity when in tie form! Here are the steps to making your husband his own Easter tie:

Jasper and Felix’s Jumpsuits
Last on our list of Easter outfits were Jasper and Felix’s jumpsuits. We used this lovely Etsy pattern! It was clear Jasper’s outfit needed to be at least a little bold, so we went with a beautiful golden color. For Felix’s, we chose a more delicate cream and periwinkle. The subtle block print was the perfect little detail for both the boys’ outfits. Words cannot describe how adorable these two boys look in their new Easter outfits!
