My first thought went to the kids Easter outfits but I nixed those. I felt that this years Easter clothes were more casual than usual and on top of that there was a week just for chevron! They were a much better fit over there. Then I got to thinking about how I have total freedom for this outfit, it didn't need to fit any occasion, I could literally make anything I wanted.
So I started brainstorming. How cute would it be to make a mini version of some celebrities gown? Oh yeah, I really liked this idea. Then I remembered most celebrities are hoochie mamas, not something that I wanted to recreate on my sweet little girl. I pouted over that for a minute until I remembered Kate Middleton. I absolutely love Kate's style. I think she is a wonderful example to young girls, she always looks stunning and is so modest. Now I was really happy, I knew just the dress I wanted to make. Last week I gave you guys a peek into the "making of" and now here it is!
Originally I wanted to do purple just like Kate but I couldn't find a purple that I was very excited about and when I came across this coral I nearly died. It had to come home with me. I liked that it was different but still very "Spring".
The thing that really takes this dress to the next level is the belt.
I'd like to be all cool and be like, "Oh, yeah I just threw that together, bada-boom!" But in reality it took me hours to sew all those beads on that belt. I love those aprox. 2,380 beads but I don't know that I'll ever go through that again. Oh my gosh though, I love how it turned out.
Oh, and don't miss how it moves!
I know that she is falling over in that last picture but lets be honest, that dress makes falling over look good!
Finally I love when a princess finds her prince. There's Kate with hers...
Recognize him? Ha.
Lorelai is way too young to go looking for princes and I LOVE this quote,
"I found my Prince Charming, I call him Daddy"
So here are just a couple more pictures for you.
That last one just melts my heart :)
See you all again really soon!
