4th of July Style!

Back in the days before blogging I think I made a million little girl dresses. 

OK, maybe just half a million. 

The point is I made so many, I've forgotten what I stashed away for my two youngest girls.  So I was thrilled when I pulled this out just in time for the 4th of July!



The dress was made for a heart themed contest...but being me I sent in my entry last minute and it didn't make it in time.  Ah well.

The hearts are all paper pierced with patriotic fabrics, each one a bit different:





Check out the lining:



And the top pocket:



I had such a fun time making this dress! And it will be worn by my younger girls for at least the next 4 years (it's a bit big on the 5 yr old right now, and the 3yr old has a couple of years before it will fit her)....now to find out what other treasures I've stashed away...

Have a Happy 4th everyone!!
