There is nothing more festive and fun on Valentine’s Day (or any day!) than wearing a special dress for the occasion. During this sew-a-long, we are going to show a simple way to turn a Hartford dress into the perfect Valentine’s Day design for your little one with a cute heart pocket detail!

This sew-a-long is not only a great motivation to get going on a fun sewing project, there is also a prize! One winner will be chosen at random and announced on Monday the 11th. To be sure you are entered into the drawing, you need to submit minimum of one progress shot and one final photo into the sew-a-long albums on the Little Lizard King Sewing Pattern facebook group. Let’s begin!

The dress I will be demonstrating with will be a long sleeved knit bodice with a neck binding and woven skirt, but you are welcome to choose whatever style you’d like! Here are some suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.

Here’s what you need to do for day one

:• Download the free pocket pattern here

• Purchase the Hartford pattern if you don’t already have it here

• Choose all the options and variations you want for your dress. Do you want a binding, bib, or collar? What kind of sleeves do you want to use?

• Print and cut out your .

  -Be sure to print out the right pieces. The collar bodice is lined and uses a different pattern than the unlined bodice.    

 -The bodice and sleeves are knit, and the skirt and heart pockets are woven.

• Choose your fabric, prewash your fabric if necessary.

Once you have all that done, get ready for day two when we will begin cutting fabric!
