Valentine's Day Dress - Tiny and DONE!


Here it is!  Emmy's Valentine's Day dress!




This is the back, with the cut-out detail.  Ahh!
I'm like 99% in love with the heart, but it's just a bit wonky.  I'm hoping that when Emmy is wearing it, it will sort of work itself into a better looking heart.  Unfortunately, it's 21 degrees out today, so I'd be jeopardizing my mother-of-the-year award if I took her out to model it today!  And there's not much natural light inside my house is a mess.  :)





The front...  My word - it's SHORT!
But again I'm hopeful that when it's on, it will be utter perfection!  Or at least decent.  For a two year old who is used to flashing her diaper anyway.  :D




Here's a closer shot of the front.  Those we're by far the tiniest sleeves I've ever had to set in!  I literally almost fell off my chair when I turned it right side out and saw that they were good!  Miracle of miracles!  I think I'll be sewing sleeveless summery things for the next... ever.





And here's a closer shot of the back!  Squeee!
For the top center, I sewed on hooks & eyes - I originally wanted elastic loops & buttons, but my machine really, really hates sewing over that tiny round elastic.  Sadface.  Does anyone have tips for sewing with that type of elastic?  I'd love to hear'em.

So that's the dress!  What do you think?!  If you missed the post about this dress coming together, here it be.

Look at the original sketch and the finished dress...






BOOYAH!  :D

So hopefully I'll be able to get pictures of Emmy in it before Valentine's Day, but if not I'll definitely get some next weekend.  Valentine's Day is my sister's birthday, and me and the Hubs dating anniversary (I know - so cheesy, we totally still celebrate that), and my moms birthday is the 17th, so we'll be having a raucous fiesta next weekend.  Hence the fierce dress.

EDITED TO ADD:

Love to ALL!
