I made this dress for my school’s fashion show in February, which is benefiting Go Red for Women partnered by the American Heart Association. That’s why I did a dress covered in hearts :). I was inspired to do this back in August while Euchre by Lake Muskoka in Ontario with my partner and his parents. It was such a fun game, how could I not be inspired? A few weeks ago, I finally found the time to make this dress. I draped the pattern, and used white satin, red brocade (to look like the back of a playing card), and I used some leftover red twill scraps from my Otoshiana dress, also made for this fashion show. I was afraid at first to make and sew the appliques, but I am very pleased with the result. Along with this dress, I learned how awesome that anti-fray liquid is when working with brocade, which frays like crazy!
