I have to tell you that seeing this dress again but used as a you did was wonderfull. My daughter made two of these dressed for her 7 yr. old daughter and her cousin who was six, for their flower girl dresses. As nanna I wanted to say they looked like princesses and I am sure that your little graddaughter will also. I was making the wedding dress and maid of honors and bridesmade dresses. We had a months notice to do this. needless to say I was sewing the day of her wedding. I wouldn't change a thing. Way to go grandma.Nice Job!!

Oh Connie, this little Cinderella dress is SO gorgeous and So authentic, I was looking for the little blue birds fluttering around the top of the dress. Your little Ava will be envied, state wide, by anyone who catches a glimpse of her. I can't envision putting a zipper in this dress, without losing your mind. How very exquisite, Connie. --Lily

LOVE your review - I was singing along as I read! And the Cinderella dress is stunning - it's TOUGH to sew satin without puckers, and yours is exquisite. And your design changes/alterations truly make this one look exactly like the inspiration. EXCELLENT!

I'm sooo glad DD#2 turned down my offer to make DGD a princess dress for Halloween in favor of an online purchase. You did such a great job. It must have taken hours and hours. I'm sure your DGD will love it and feel so special at Disney World. Had to check, almost said DisneyLand since you live in OR. Nice work.

Connie, the inside of this is just as beautiful as the outside. It is a delight to see someone take such pride in their work to make things look so nice. Your Ava will look so precious in this! I can tell you have spent many, many hours making such a beautiful dress (and all the WONDERFUL accessories!).
