Tutorial Tuesday :: Sweetheart Bubble Dress Pattern Remix from You & Mie

Valentine's day is just around the corner, and we have the perfect sewing tutorial for you! The extremely talented Cherie of You & Mie did a wonderful pattern remix of Very Shannon's Sweetheart Dress Sewing Pattern. This dress is just right for Valentine's Day and Easter sewing.  
Check out how great the Sweetheart Dress looks as a Bubble Dress at You & Mie. Cherie made a couple of changes to the original pattern including hand stitching a hook and eye to the back instead of a button with a loop. Both back closures look adorable to me!
To make the Sweetheart Dress into a bubble dress, Cherie includes this graphic about measuring your lining fabric based on the measurements of your main skirt piece from the original sewing pattern. Cherie references fellow blogger An of StraightGrain who posted more detailed instructions on creating the bubble effect here.
Get the pattern here and grab some fabrics to get your Valentine's Day sewing on!
Shop Girl Charlee Valentine Fabrics here. This dress would be perfect in a cotton blend knit such as a Cotton Jersey or Ponte De Roma Fabric. A few of my picks from the store:
We hope you enjoy this tutorial! We love to see what you sew up so please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog@girlcharlee.com and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!

Happy sewing!
