Over the past few weeks, I've had the absolute pleasure of working with luvinthemommyhood to grade the Sweetheart Dress pattern seen here. Shannon has had the tutorial up for a while, but she will soon be rolling out an actual pattern for those less inclined to work from scratch. As part of the process of doing the grading/diagrams for the pattern, I whipped up one of these babies for Harper. As my Mormon girls would say, "Oh my laws!" Or even, "OH. MY. LAWS. And, "Fer CUTE!!" (Love y'all!)
Seriously, I love this dress. We got compliments on it just from one trip to the park. I'm sure this tutorial/pattern will be a staple in our house for the next few years!
Please ignore the sweaty curls from Harper's pre-playground, in-the-carseat nap.
...and all the wrinkles in her dress. I promise, I do own an iron!
Just relaxing in the swing - her favorite playground activity.
Sooooo close to walking on her own, but she still loves her push-walker.
This adorable fabric was gifted to me at Harper's baby shower (better to use it late than never, right?) by Shauna of meowsk.
Going down the slide all by herself!
Those baby blues just kill me every time. I fear her teenage years.
So, if you're particularly ambitious and love this dress as much as I do, get sewing! Otherwise, you can wait until the pattern comes out - hopefully very soon! Thanks, Shannon, for such an adorable idea!
