52 Week Sewing Challenge- Week 6

This weeks 52 week sewing challenge was especially FUN because not only did it allow me to sew a pattern I've been drooling over for months, but the final project turned out so AMAZINGLY CUTE ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This week we were challenged to sew something with a heart and I decided to take it one step further and instead of just sewing something with heart fabric I would sew something with a heart CUT-OUT!!!ย 

I've seen a ton of ADORABLE pics of the Simple Life Isla Infinity Tunic and Dressย and fell head over heels in LOVE with how CUTE it is!!! Only problem.... I don't have anyone to sew it for ๐Ÿ˜ซ Having 4 boys is absolultely AMAZING, but it makes it difficult to sew up all the frilly sweet dresses. That's why when I saw this weeks challenge I knew IMMEDIATELY what I was going to sew up. I don't care that I don't have anyone in mind for it right now, I know that eventually the rightful owner of this dress will make themselves know ๐Ÿ’• So, I grabbed some PHENOMENAL Silver Faux Glitter* printed on Crushed Velvet and some FANTASTIC Buffalo Plaid Snowflakes* printed on French Terry and got to work!!! ๐Ÿ’ช

While the heart cut-out on this pattern really takes this dress to the next level. I was super nervous about it at first, but the instructions were FABULOUS and made the whole process super easy and stress free! I did make one mistake with this dress though. When attaching the top to the skirt I over second guessed myself and instead of attaching it right sides together like I KNOW I'm supposed to, I attached the bodice wrong side to the right side of the skirt. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Because of that mistake the dress is ALMOST perfect.... When I seam ripped the bodice to reattach it I was kind of frustrated and didn't quarter it like I should of and so theres a bit of extra fabric on the back bodice causing some wrinkling, but all in all I LOVE this project!!! Not only was the crushed velvet AMAZING to sew with, but because it has a shimmer to it it really made the faux glitter look MIND BLOWINGLY real ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
