Happy Valentine's Day


For the most part I really like holidays (well except for Christmas because it's stressful and expensive BUT that is for a different post). I love the silly hearts and arrows associated with Valentine's day and who doesn't love chocolate and flowers? So Valentines is pretty fun in my book. This year I got even more excited for Valentine's day, after I saw this heart and arrow themed fabric for 65% off (and I had a 20% off coupon. . .). So a dress had to be made. 


It's a super lightweight cotton fabric from Joann Fabric. The bodice was cut with New Look pattern 6723- except I rounded the neck and lowered the back. The skirt is true circle skirt- with a slight gather on top, and pockets. 


Brendon and I were going to have a date night tonight, but since we got massive amounts of snow I don't think it's going to happen. So last night I put my dress on, styled it the way I probably would have worn it today if we were going out and dragged the hubby into the snow to photograph it. I hope one day I get better pictures of the dress to show you more detail- however, I know me so I don't have high hopes! I do however, hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's day!
