A Ball Gown for a Princess' Birthday!

This dress was custom ordered by a special client for a Royal Birthday Gala! (Lucky little girl!) It is made of iridescent lilac and magenta silk dupioni. I hand embroidered some bullion roses along the bodice and added a few beads for extra sparkle.
I can't wait to see a photo of this little beauty wearing it :o) I know she will have a lovely birthday. Thanks for looking!

Royal Purple Smocked Silk Gown

Here is a lovely little smocked silk gown I made for a sweet little girl that used to model for me years ago! She was only 18 months back when she used to be my little model and now she is already 7!!! My time flies by sooooo quickly. If her mom sends me any photos, I will post some then and now photos! :o) Here is the gown. It is the richest shade of purple!
Here is a closeup of the smocking and embroidery:
The gown is my original pattern that I drafted years ago. I had almost forgotten how to make it, it had been so long. Anyhow, I thought you might like to see it. Have a great day!
