The Advantages of Having Nieces

Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins.  
~ Paris Hilton

Years of sewing for my two nieces has resulted in a box full of pink ribbons, lace and dangly-things, which I have raided to "jazz-up" my Snoopy Valentine's Day A-Line dress.  ;)

I'm going to use the pink grosgrain ribbon as a tie to close the back (rather than a button) and I'm going to use the pink ribbon with dangly-things as a decorative strip aligned approximately under the bodice (i.e., higher than the waist).  

In other words, just a few small touches to make sure that this dress doesn't fade into the background...  ;)

Here's wishing each of us a good sewing weekend!  :)
