Happy Easter--the Poppy dress

I really like this pattern so I decided to make this dress. (Hush, don't tell anyone it was made from left over curtain material---If you listen, you hear Mammy saying: "What you up to with Miss Ellen's portiers).
 I can slip on my little jacket. If you look closely, you can see the snow under my left foot. That's because:
There is still a ton of snow up on the mountains! April indeed.

Those big splashy flowers with the petal-green of the jacket are wonderful!
