This is my granddaughter all dolled up for her 6th grade dance. She graduates this year to middle school and we(the family) are so proud of her accomplishments. She plays the flute and aspires to run track in jr high school. I self drafted this dress for her on Monday night and by Friday morning this is what it came out to be!! I love this dress on her and as you can seeeeeee, She loves it too!! The dress is made of silk essence and the flowerettes and sash is made of organza. I put a side zipper in of 7 inches but I need to change it to something longer because it was a little bit of a tight squeeze to get into. Otherwise, I am very please with the outcome and will try to make this again.
