Thank You, My daughter inspired the changes as we went along. The house will be full of girls this afternoon getting ready for the dance, I will update the photos as soon as I get a picture of her in it!

This is super lovely and you did a wonderful job figuring out how to recreate the patterns from the inspiration dress. I want one!! Your daughter is lucky to have such a wonderful seamstress for a mother.

Can we have a photo of her wearing the dress? I'd love to see it on!

SoVintage said...
If I did it correct I just added 3 photos of my dd wearing the dress. Thank You again for the compliments

wow! you had me at the way you re-created the fabric, let alone the dress. i like it even better than the inspiration.

SoVintage said...
Thank You Elizabeth, my dd thought the same thing, of course it is a mish mash of the inspiration dress and her vision of what it should be.

Good costume, and many girls could get away with wearing it for other occasions as well - minus the bunny, I guess.

SoVintage said...
Thank You, and yes I agree you would have to loose the bunny :)
