PR and P week four Valenties Day



 
This week's Project Run & play theme is for Valentine's Day. I was thinking about making lace dress when I started thinking that the perfect dress for Sweet pea this year is the The Sweet pea dress I made her a few years ago. It's been a while since I made her a dress from my own "pattern" since I have been sewing with the O+S pattens. My own isn't as nice as the O+S but still I love it!

 

The fabric is eyelet, so sweet for the holiday with a satin pink bow on the dress. The bow is a premade one that I had bought marked down when I made her first dress two years ago that I had put up. Instead of buttons this dress has a zipper, something fun to try. I am not that good at putting in zippers as buttons but I have really gotten much better!

 
The sleeves are the eyelet fabric too, the dress is fully lined seeing how the eyelet fabric is very see through. Since I cut the fabric out on the edge there is no hemming this dress anywhere so a bit of a time saver. 

 
Sweet pea loves it too! It has pink on it. ;)
And for My Aunt, yes I got her up. No it wasn't easy but I won! hehehe
I wish she would let me put her up more but she hates her hair fix. sigh

 

The front bodice of the dress is a solid white strip of fabric with pleats in it. It's a bit hard to see here though. I love this bit of detail!

 
Maybe a bit easier to see in this picture?

 
I saved my favorite picture for last, this one on the bottom. Today she was so happy and smiling that she didn't take one bad picture. :) Then again she also wouldn't sit still so this made for lots of fun. I love my little girl!!
