I made this red modified Danielle dress for my Strawberry Shortcake Halloween costume. Today I wanted to wear red for my Valentine’s date night, but I don’t have any red, non-summery dresses in my closet. So to the costume box I went to rescue this one. I added a textured, ruffled bib with alternating fuscia and red buttons a la “Valentine Date Dress” by sweetiepiebakery. Her sleeveless velvet version is so cute! The bib is from a recycled lady’s dress shirt and the ruffles are single-sided satin ribbon. I actually like this dress a lot more with the added details, and I think I’d like it even more if I ever motivate myself enough to make the sleeves a bit less puffy at the top. I wore it with a cardigan this evening, which helped smoosh the shoulder fluff before the photos. You can see the before in my Strawberry Shortcake project.
