So albeit my husband isn’t a huge fan of Valentine’s day- the hopeless romantic in me actually really enjoys it! We are supposed to actually have a babysitter this year (not for actually valentines day but the weekend before) we prefer fewer crowds 😉 So I wanted to make up a dress to surprise him when we go out. It’s been awhile since we’ve had any kind of one on one date so I figured it needed to happen! Insert- Wiggle.
I got this amazing double brushed poly flocked with velvet fabric from The Fab Clique to sew up and knew it’d be perfect for V-day. (It’ll be stocking 1/19/18 on the site so keep your eyes peeled) Now for the pattern- I used Patterns for Pirates Wiggle Dress . This pattern is like the sisterhood of the traveling pants and seriously looks good on everyone. Even with that being said I’m pretty self-conscious about it because I’m a very rectangle shape. After size grading my wiggle pattern turns into essentially a rectangle. I decided to push those fears aside and go for it because I’m blessed with knowing my hubby loves me for me, rectangle and all.
I’m so glad I pushed past that fear because I really love the finished result and I think he will too! The velvet flocking gives enough depth to cover any extra lumps this form-fitting dress might have. I even skipped the shapewear! Go me! Best of all- it’s such a fast and easy sew with so many options! Perfect for beginners, advanced, and everyone in between. The fabric was also SO easy to work with and sewed up like a dream. I’m officially ready for v-day almost a whole month early! So if you are looking for something to knock your significant others socks off I encourage you to give this a try! Everyone shape and size I’ve seen wearing it looks drop dead gorgeous!
Do you celebrate valentines day?? Any questions?? Let me know in the comments and thanks for stopping by!
