Yes, Another Starry Night Dress

Remember these????

I still had some Vinny fabric left over from my husband. I love me some Vinny Van Gogh! I decided to make yet another dress from this amazing fabric.  I am more than happy to sport more Starry Night outfits around town.  I just wore the Starry night dress last week to a wedding, and got lots of compliments. It was such a great feeling! My girl loves her dress too, and with the chilly weather here now, leggings and a sweater are perfect with her dress! You can check out the details of the dresses HERE and HERE.
I had just enough fabric to make a simple t-shirt-y shift dress. But I only had enough left over for the front. Have no fear!!! I have plain black fabric that will be a great match for the back. I traced a T-shirt and extended it down as far as the fabric  length would let me.
Perfect with a sweater and boots! A great dress to wear the day before Thanksgiving break starts! I know we are ALL ready for a break!

I had a tooth pillow as a child, and I remembered it being a fun experience. When I was five, I really believed I saw the tooth fairy leave my room with sparkles trailing behind her.
Good timing too, because two days later she had 2 more loose teeth! Apples are going to be a problem for a while.
I have had this vest for quite a long time. I never wear it.  This will do just fine to make  a wonderful and shiny tooth pillow. Nice vest. Better tooth pillow.
I took my pinking roller to it, and cut out the side with the zipper pocket.  But, I realized I didn't get close enough to the front zipper to create a big enough pocket.  Good thing there was another side.
After that small mishap I turned the rectangle inside out, and sewed up 3 of the 4 sides.

The vest had batting already on t…
