Dress Making Step 1:

So, Samantha’s  Communion dress designing process began…..

We looked through many children’s catalogs and websites to get an idea of how to make a dress out of the Couture Dreams Chichi fabric.

Samantha and I knew right off the bat that the petal would be on the bottom of the dress.  Samantha wanted an a-line skirt, which did not surprise me because she is not the crinoline type.  Working with the petal fabric so much in designing window panels, pillows, throws, tablecloths and bed skirts I knew how the fabric would work for the skirt…..the question was the top????  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our New Couture Dreams Whisper Window Curtains and since the dress was being made out of the same nylon fabric I wanted to try to replicate that gathered, designer richness on the top of the dress.

So, both Samantha and I sat down and started sketching and before we knew it we had a dress design.

I have to say I am so….impressed with my little princess.  Samantha is very opinionated, she  knows what she likes and what she doesn’t.  She had this idea of what she wanted her dress to look like in her head and was able to sketch it out ….I am so proud of her!  Now, we just need to find someone to sew it.  Who????

Deciding to Create a Dress

Our girls Communion is coming up and it is such a special day to us….it is a day in your life that you always seem to remember no matter how old you are.  Since Jeanette only has one daughter she knew that she wanted to make it a special day for her.  Jodi’s daughter that is receiving is her oldest, so again a very special day.  We thought that it would be adorable if the girls designed their own dresses out of our Chichi fabric.  Samantha, Jeanette’s daughter has very simple and elegant taste; she is all about being comfortable.

Jodi’s daughter, Ella loves glitz and glam so if they each were to design their own dresses they would be extremely different.

So the project started…….Samantha embraced the idea of designing her own dress and was excited in her own calm way.

Ella……LOVES to shop and the idea of not shopping for a dress was not appealing to her.  So, so much for our vision of each of our girls having Chichi Communion dresses, one will have one and one will not but that is okay because they meet up again with flowers, which we will explain later.
