Our little princess

This is what I've been doing lately.  Here are pics of my middle GD, Kyla.  She was the flower girl in my nephew's wedding last month.  This McCalls 5770 (discontinued) pattern was a bear with all the layers of tulle underneath and taking up of the layers.  But looking at her come down the isle in it made it worth all the effort!!!!  I used a taffeta and underlined it with silk organza.  It is fully lined using the same taffeta.  I choose taffeta because it really puffed up better than regular satin, which was kind of heavy.  The purple sash is made out of a poly organza. She was beautiful, no one could belive I made the dress.  I always find people's amazement that I make clothes so funny, how do people think ready made clothes get put together, LOL

She is absolutely gorgeous!! As is the dress. I always tell people that if you can buy it, someone can make it. But for some reason they can wrap their heads around it. Great job

She is gorgeous, love the dress. I'm going to send some folks to you that want prom dresses next year. Not my type of sewing. I'll email you about the NG.
