Valentines Day Dress

 Here is girly's Valentines dress for this year! It was made on a whim (i.e. NOT planned) but I like the way it turned out!  I used the Clara pattern from VFT.  I used some thrifted fabric I've had in my stash for YEARS.  I was glad to finally use up that fabric!  I love the "conversation-heart" pattern on the fabric.  I had purchased some pink polka dot fabric that I was going to pair with some other fabric I had in my stash and make her a Valentines day dress out of that, but this came along and so I'm saving that fabric for something else! I had a heck of a time choosing the buttons in the middle. Yellow heart buttons would have been my first choice, had they actually existed.  I could not find yellow heart buttons ANYWHERE.  Or for that matter, pink heart buttons! Those would have been my second choice. So yellow round buttons it is.  Okay, enough rambling, here are the pics:

She's wearing a pettiskirt underneath so the dress was really fluffy!

I like that this dress isn't the typical red-and-pink Valentine color scheme.  I think she can get away with wearing this dress whenever and it won't like too "Valentiny".
