…for a Valentine’s Day sweater dress.
Don’t you think this is the perfect time of year for cozy and pretty knit dresses? They are so comfy, easy to wear, and they keep you nice and toasty warm.
“Sweethearts and Roses”, Gina’s new outfit, started out with her tights. I’ve had this cotton knit for years and have never got around to using it. It is really a sweet print with lots of different hearts in pinks and reds. There’s even a bit of silver in there for a touch of little girl sparkle. I matched my yarn to the warm pink hearts and knit up an a-line dress that is short enough to let those tights look, oh, so cute. I embroidered two large asymmetrical groups of roses, rosebuds, and hearts at the dropped waistline. Extra pops of color are added with a touch of bright lavender and light yellow green. You’ll find more hearts and love for you in Gina’s jewelry. Her simple grosgrain headband snaps in back so it doesn’t need to be retied each time.
