Description

My sweet friend who acted as the model for my ruffle dress is having a birthday. Modeling not be as big a deal if you’re an accomplished sewist, but with me it basically means that she was a human voodoo doll. (I’m getting better at not sticking people, but pins are prone to that.) Anyhow, she’s earned a treat!

Her birthday was the weekend of the holiday, so the party was V-Day themed. She looks stellar in red, and picked out a cute halter dress pattern with a full skirt. I got some fantastic cotton and I changed up the pattern to make a sweetheart (pun intended) neckline and some sheer bits. It’s my first time trying to do anything like this, but she really liked how it turned out.
