Sweetheart Dress Pattern Review

 Well, this little dress is just perfect for the month of February, is it not?  Have you ever seen anything so sweet as a girl’s dress with a heart cutout in the back?  I was so happy to get my hands on this Sweetheart Dress  (affiliate link) – I’ve been eyeing it ever since Shannon from luvinthemommyhood released it last October!
This dress is an ideal choice for someone looking for a cute, fairly easy pattern that is quick to download, print out, and get sewing with!  The pattern pieces are minimal (no taping together required) and the instructions are super straightforward.  If you read Shannon’s blog, you’ll feel right at home following her pattern!  The pictures are clear and helpful.
I think this dress pattern is perfect for showcasing a really cute printed fabric.  The heart cutout on the back adds interest to the design so that the rest of the dress can just show off the fabric.  I chose this absolutely adorable Pernilla’s Journey Cotton Candy elephant fabric by Tina Givens for Free Spirit.  I had only one yard, which is less that the fabric requirements, but I was able to reduce the width of the skirt pieces just a tad and squeeze out the whole dress in a 4T with just the one yard.  Sweet!!
 
I tied a little ribbon around the waist for a splash of contrast and made a quick matching headband.  I think these little details are easy to do and add a nice finish to this sweet dress.
As far as the little model is concerned, this dress makes her feel super glamorous…and very much in the mood for twirling…and smiling.
 
Do you have a little sweetheart to sew up one of these dresses for?
