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????
