Valentine's themed Project Run and Play:
Doilies and Chocolate
This has got to be the most enjoyable photo shoot I have done with this kid.
Clover couldn't believe that I was going to let her eat that giant chocolate bar.
Cooperation was above average. Nice.
I sewed rows and rows and rows and rows of cream and white lace together.
I then debated whether to dye it red or pink.
I chose red, but some of the more highly synthetic lace didn't accept the dye as well and turned pink anyway.
I painted some glass and some plastic buttons to look like little chocolates to line her back.
I thought they were real, sitting on this plate, several times during the week.
Sneaking some bites while I snapped shots of the back.
Worth the wait.
Go and vote for your favorite look!
Tutorial now found here!

Katie, I voted for yours, because it looks great, but if I could just vote for Clover, I would. She's adorable. I can see a little spunk in her eyes!ReplyDelete
I absolutely adore this dress!! I love that you have now done two projects sewing lots and lots of strips of different lace together, then dyed it, and it has turned how so amazing. I think the strips not all dying the same color adds to my love of this dress. Great job!!!ReplyDelete
Just stunning! And what a prize for posing! I just love the variation of the dying effect! Fabulous!ReplyDelete
I love this dress Katy!!! I want it for me!! And the buttons?! Amazing!ReplyDelete
I love this dress and Clover is really a little darling in these pictures, but well, she always looks cute :)ReplyDelete
The red and pink go together well and the chocolate buttons are adorable. Clover looks like she enjoyed the chocolate.
this is my favorite dress you've made for the project thus far. while i aspire to make one myself, i would much rather purchase one from your etsy shop. :)ReplyDelete
That is gorgeous, I love how you sewed the lace together. This is such a creative idea.ReplyDelete
OMG! This is so adorable, I can't stand it! Love how you sewed the lace together before dying. I totally have to try this sometime. I really hope you win, cause I love your projects! Going to vote :]ReplyDelete
I loved when you made yourself a skirt like this...now in a dress it's even better.ReplyDelete

Does the dress have a lining? It is just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
LOVE the buttons and the way the lace is all different. I think it really makes the dress more interesting and had it all been the same color...would have been a little less interesting.ReplyDelete
Once again you've impressed us all! I (c)LOVE(r) it!ReplyDelete
The lace on the sleeves is impeccable. Congrats ('cause I know you'll win).
Hannah--yes, the dress is lined, but the sleeves are not.ReplyDelete
I'm SO in love with this dress! Please, please, please do a tutorial!ReplyDelete
I never comment, but seriously, how cute is she?!!!!ReplyDelete
Clover! the curls, the sparkling eyes! she is just too much.ReplyDelete
The dress is so lovely- if you keep doing these gorgeous lace/dye projects i'm going to be inspired enough to try it myself :O)
The buttons are perfectly delicious.
I love this dress so much. I have a large bag of random old laces that my mom gave me. I would love to do a variation of this in green for my little red head. You've done such a gorgeous job on this dress. I love everything about it! Are you thinking of sharing a pattern or some tips for the dress??? Congrats on a wonderful creation!ReplyDelete
Please tell me there will be a tutorial of this. Absolute perfection.ReplyDelete
