My Sweet Valentine
I can envision what things will look like so clearly in my mind, yet I have a really hard time getting the actual item in front of me to resemble said vision.
Sigh. I suppose that's true of most of my life in general, ha.
I figured out it was best to make the puff part first, and stop worrying about the red underlay for a minute.
Now it's time to attach the underlay/basic skirt. I made the casing for the waistband and then attached the apron front over that, to make it look like more of a ruffle- love this!
Just need to hem the red skirt.
This is what I did for the shirt ~
A multipurpose butterfly/heart/initial "i" for Isabelle! I know, I may have dyslexia, but I sure am clever, ha!
Ouch! See that scowl?
And here she was a few hours ago.
No permanent damage.
We opted for white tights in lieu of red leggings, and of course her "sparkle shoons!"
I could eat those little legs up no matter they're wearing!
All in all, I'm pleased with how it turned out sans pattern or other tutorial, but I do wish it had more "poof." I'll have to read up on that! =)
