Sew adorable

 My Sweet Valentine

Hmm.
I think I'm a fabric dyslexic.
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.
Mini modeling session yesterday, on Valentine's Day...she was none too happy with me when I announced that she'd be taking it off and "saving" it for her school party today.

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.
Whew!  
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!    =)
