What's more perfect for Valentine's day than to have a sweet little dress to wear to celebrate the day! I don't think much can compare whether you are 4 or 45, am I right? Well, if you have a little girl in your life between the ages 2-6 you are in luck because there is a pattern for the most adorable dress my good friend Shannon from Luvinthemommyhood created called the Sweetheart Dress. It is seriously the cutest thing!
The dress is an 18 page digital e-Pattern meaning you print it off right at home on your computer. The thing I really loved about this pattern is that there were absolutely NO papers to tape together! All the pattern pieces fit on a few pages of paper, hooray for that!
The pattern is very clear and easy to understand, Shannon did a great job of making sure it was easy for even a beginner seamstress. Her pictures are super detailed and guide you step-by-step in creating your very own dress. I made both Penny and Ellie's at the same time, assembly line style, and had them both done in right at 2 hours.
I think the dresses turned out so cute! My girls are head over heels excited about them. Penny picked out the fabric and went to bed praying that I would have them done by the morning for her and her sister to wear.
These two sisters.
They love to dress alike and can I tell you that these dresses have been worn quite often in the short time since I made them :-) I love when something I make them is such a hit!
For Eloise, I used a wooden heart button I found at Joann's. I also lined her bodice with a light pink fabric to change the dress up slightly from her sister's.
Can you tell they are happy!
These dresses have a great skirt that is perfect for twirling in too!
