Wild Hearts Bubble Dress for Little Momo

Valentine Inspired Looks is the theme for Project Run and Play week 4.  I initially had something else in my mind for the Valentine dress, but decided to finish what I had planned to do for the 1st week challenge that I did not complete.  The 1st week challenge was Party Dress remix.  When I saw this animal prints/hearts fabric at Jo-Ann, I just thought it was perfect for a sweet bubble dress and the Party Dress remix challenge.  And although the fabric is a part of their Valentine fabric collection, I thought this print can be worn before and beyond Valentine.

I sewed on little pink hearts buttons on the back.  I thought the large buttons would be distracting with the prints.

No sleeves, no collars...the simple Party Dress bodice is just what I needed for this dress.

I have made the Party Dress before ( here and here ), and knew it fit well on Momo.  Size 2T is just perfect on her right now, but I wanted this dress to be her Birthday dress and wanted to make sure it will not be too small in a month or so.  I used size 3T, and it is a little too big for her now.  But I am sure she will grow into it pretty soon.  
The hair clip is a simple yo-yo I made with the leftover fabric, with something shiny glued on.

I made the heart pillow last year for the Valentine photo.   This year I made the garlands and pompoms to use as the photo prop.

When I was making this dress for the 1st week challenge, I was going to make a fabric flower to attach to the sash.   But I changed that to a heart for this week's Valentine challenge.  Well...at least I tried to make a heart...does it look like a heart???

It is almost time for the Mardi Gras...Momo is getting ready for the party!

Linking up to those fun parties.

  10. Very cute! I'm entering the sew along this week for the first time. I'm just working on the post.

  11. Such a lovely dress! Very well done

  12. great fabric and accessories!!! I love how your bubble skirt actually bubbles, is it just the nature of different fabrics, or is there a trick??

    1. I am no bubble skirt expert...but for this hearts bubble dress, I cut 2 pieces salvage to salvage for the main pieces. The lining pieces were about the half of the main and also 2 1/2 inches shorter than the main pieces. I guess you can play around with the sizing till you find what you like? I have made bubble skirts so far only with quilting cotton, and bubbles came out beautiful. Hope this helps you create a beautiful bubble dress!

  13. Adorable dress and model! I'm sure she is loving all of her new dresses. Lucky girl! :D
