So I wanted something cute to wear for Valentines day and I was in the mood for sewing... so fast forward a few days later and voila! Two perfect dresses for Valentines day and the rest of the summer!

DRESS NUMBER 1


This is the mu-mu I bought originally for my Valentines dress. I had cut the first line in it when I realized I wanted a pic of it's ugliness first  Grin


This is the best shot I have of the dress all done, it was super late and so the only light I could have on with out bothering people was my bathroom light and my mirror wasn't long enough to show the dress... hence the weird angle.  Undecided

I copied this dress pattern from the tutorial here on Craftster for the dragon print dress... I have no idea where it is I should probably go find it >< Well until I find the link I'll just describe it. The original dragon dress was made by a lovely girl who had this crazy dragon material and who is an amazing sewer and tailor, she is here somewhere in the threads. Great description right  Tongue

DRESS NUMBER 2


Here is ugly dress number two that I found. I realized that I had to wear a dress made of this material for valentines day despite all the hard work poured into the first dress. This second dress was just twisting my arm I didn't have a choice!
And yes my ceiling is red. we are a colorful family and don't believe in the color white for walls Tongue


This is the finished dress! It turned out so cute!! I know the pic quality is not the greatest, but bear with me! I used a Vogue  pattern I have had in my pattern stash for a while, I have no Idea what the pattern number is (i'm terrible at this huh) I decided to use some black material to break up some of the crazy color in the dress and I think it brings it down to earth with out taking away from the pattern, but that's just me. I really like the result its fun and swirly and reminds me a bit of the 70's.  Cheesy


This is a close up of the fabric. Isn't it great.

So anyways those are my Valentines dresses, I really like them Smiley

I can see why you had to use that second dress!  Love the fabric!  It would make me smile just to walk passed it in my closet!
