My favourite thing about Easter was that the Easter Bunny always brought me a new outfit. My family is not religious, so there was no dressing up for Easter service, but the bunny almost always brought me a nice new skirt and blouse.
Now most kids could care less about getting clothes for a holiday, but I always loved it. There wasn't a lot of money to go around, so generally, I only got new clothes for back to school, Christmas and Easter. (but I got really lucky with the hand-me downs, let me tell you!)
There are no new clothes for me this Easter, but I figured it was a good day to go through the closet and sort everything out. While in there, I discovered that most of it needed to be ironed, including my collection of sundresses.

I didn't realize it until I pulled them all out, but that's a lot of dresses! That said, in the summer, I pretty much live in these dresses. Throw on a cardigan, and I wear them to work. I even wear them in a winter - add a pair of tights and a tall pair of boots and you're set!
And now that my studio is set up, I was able to finally tackle some minor repairs and mods. Straps were reinforced, hems restitched, and on one particularly beautiful dress...
