A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of sewing up the Sweetheart Dress by Luvinthemommyhood. I've been wanting to give it a go for a while and of course this means I waited until nearly Winter to sew a fairly Summery dress. Nothing that a Christmas fabric, cute cardigan, and tights can't fix however!
She's usually a very happy model but something about this day just wasn't working for her. Maybe the fact that she was getting blinded by the sun??
I had a bit of trouble getting the back of the dress, the heart cutout, just right but I figured out pretty quickly that I made a small cutting error. Next time I'll know better. I have a feeling Ara will have a few more of these dresses come next Spring/Summer. Especially in some pretty lighter fabrics. This will be Ara's Christmas dress, I'm a little obsessed with plaids and I think in the past year I've gone through a good 4 yards of this fabric? It's almost totally gone now though!
This isn't the only sewing pattern of Shannon's that I've used and I'm a huge fan of her Commuter Cowl pattern as well. I swear she takes all those amazing ideas that are so tricky and has a way of figuring out how it's done that I just can't! Thanks for taking all the hard work out of it Shannon!
Don't forget to check out The Train To Crazy to see all the Very Go To Christmas posts. There should be some pretty great patterns reviewed!
Please note that the opinions of this post are totally mine and I was not compensated at all for writing it. I did however receive the sewing pattern free.
