planning a valentine's day dress
This past week, I bought a few yards of crushed velvet in cranberry and gold with the precise goal to create a Valentine's Day dress. I also purchased pom pom trim in a bright white and an olive green.. also, some floral trim that would look lovely at a neckline or as a belt at the waist or under the bust.
Yeah, I know Valentine's Day is over a month away. Usually, I'm not an early person - and especially when it comes to sewing. But I think I'm still a little angry that I didn't have time to make a New Years dress, so now I want to make absolutely sure I sew something for the next holiday.
Below are the vintage sewing patterns I've been eyeing on Etsy.. plenty of lace ruffles, peter pan collars, and smocking.
Patterns found here.. 1. sew mrs p, 2. coconut pie, 3. sandmarg, 4. ima sewing machine, 5. sew mrs p
Which one is your favorite? Of course, I don't have to make a dress at all - I thought about making a high waisted full skirt to wear with a vintage silky blouse, or even a velvet romper or pair of overalls. The white pom pom trim would be a nice addition to a full golden circle skirt. I'm up for anything at this point.
What do you think I should make, and do you guys have any plans for what you'll be wearing?
