Any who for my dress this month for the 12 Dress Project ( we named it and gave it a button, look to the left, down a little) I went with a Valentines day theme with a slight twist. The detail I wanted to work on was my new found love, embroidery! I found a embroidery pattern that I fell in love with on Urban Threads, one of my new addiction sites along with Sublime Stitching, called Love Potion Apothecary Label. Inspired by the apothecary label I went looking about the Internet for what apothecary's use to wear and the one thing I found in common were the white aprons. That is just perfect for me. I love aprons and I thought that could easily translate into modern wear... or modern Mrs. Frizzle wear.

Buttons made her first dress for the 12 Dress Project this month as well. Look at that fabric!!! Could it be more perfect? I think not. She was quite excited when she found it in the store. This is her first dress that she has sewn from start to finish totally on her own, I'm so proud of her. She even conquered her fear of the zipper! And her pockets match Pru's skirt.
