Because she holds the key to my heart.
I can’t find my before picture – pretty sure it’s on my computer that crashed out last week…bygones…but here are a few in progress shots and, of course, the after cuteness. Just picture a cute but drab dress with military style buttons. I liked it when I bought it, but knew the sparkly one would not so much. So, we embellish…
Worked in a few hearts with a quick reverse applique –
All I did here was was cut some hearts out of pink fabric (about 1/4-1/2″ bigger than i wanted the finished heart. Basted them on the inside of the dress in random spots with basting spray and stitched them on with pink thread.
Then, I flipped it inside out and cut out the heart on the dress just inside the stitch line to reveal the pink on the right side. Easy peasy.
I had already removed the old buttons. My favorite is the heart & lock. I actually searched and searched for that – harder to find than you might think! Thank you Etsy! I got these fabulous buttons from Threadbender64. Sewed those on in place of the original buttons – and done. The whole project took maybe an hour? We are not counting the 2 months…or so…that it took me to actually get to it and finish it…that’s just what happens around here…but she loves it, and I do to! Just wanted to show you how easy it is to spruce up an outfit!
