Love Is In The Air!!

I don't usually make Isabella clothes for every holiday, but this year she started Head Start so I just love having the excuse to sew her up some pretty new outfits to wear for her holiday parties. I am however always on a budget, so I wanted to use a PDF Pattern that I already had, even though my Etsy Cart is full of patterns that I need want to buy. I also wanted to use a fabric that would be simple, yet pretty for a Valentine Party Dress.

I first decided to pick a beautiful small pink and white polka dot fabric, it is simple, but I can dress it up a tad, it looks cute for the Valentine theme but it can be worn more than once since it didn't have hearts and such all over it. I bought the fabric with no pattern in mind, but I knew I wanted something that had a classic look to it, as well as something that could be layered Isabella can wear it now, and for spring.

You will soon learn from me that I have a slight obsession with Brownie Goose Sewing Patterns. Amy's Patterns are all very classic, slightly vintage, but yet still modern. They are also all full of great commentary, you are sure to get a few chuckles out while reading through the patterns. For this dress I chose to use the Lazy Susan, Susan has so many adorable options, but I made the plain classic dress. Now, don't be fooled by the "plain" term, my Susan is full of classic character!

The Lazy Susan features a fully lined Boat Neck bodice and a beautiful full gathered skirt. Susan is sleeveless but, is perfect for pairing with a coordinating cardigan, tights/leggings and boots for the cooler weather. The option I did for this is dress is put together very quickly, and I had this finished in a afternoon, which you may get it done sooner if you don't have as many distractions as I do.

And now the dress...

Swoon!!! Ah the pearls with this dress just pulls the classic look all together.
I'm all out of words for this beauty.
