First up, is this adorable ruffled heart dress I made for my daughter for Valentine's Day. I found the idea on Pinterest. Don't you just love that place? I could wallow away the hours pinning. And although I pin a lot of stuff, I feel like I've been doing a pretty good job at actually doing projects that I pin. For every 100 projects that I pin, I probably make 1. That's good, right? Just say it's good! :)
So anyway, I saw THIS cute tutorial for making a ruffled heart dress. Easy to follow instructions and clear pictures to show you step by step what to do. I was not planning on making the dress, but I did have a denim jumper that needed a little TLC. It was just kind of blah and I thought that adding the ruffled heart to this jumper would be just the thing to make it fun to wear again. I used an old red tee for the ruffled heart, the hem of the red tee for the belt and a red chiffon layer from an old dress to add to the bottom of the jumper (it was a little on the short side, so this helped with the length).
I think it took about an hour to complete. Now, we have a cute dress to wear for Valentine's Day and were able to repurpose a piece of clothing.
