Project Run and Play: The Sweet Dress

I've been following Project Run and Play (you should too!) and decided to take the challenge this week and make the "Sweet Dress" from Leila and Ben

My sister's wedding is coming up: Sophia already has a dress for the wedding (thanks Mom!) but not for the rehearsal dinner. Making a cute, slightly fancy, wintery dress was my inspiration.

For my interpretation I used a dark brown velvet my mom gave me, what was left of the sweater vest I hacked off my lousy attempt at a dress and an old Holister sweater I decided to get rid of because when I wore it, I looked like a teenager. I pieced them all together and added a pocket.

The Leila and Ben pattern was extremely easy to follow and this is what I came up with:

 You can see the brown a little better with the flash.

Let me know what you think! And be sure to check out Project Run and Play!
