Some time ago I designed and made a dress for my daughter for big occasions. If you are curious about the final effect I invite you to see a few photos bellow.
The dress has a big, impressive bow at the back. I designed that bow as a men’s bow-tie. Thanks to special design of the bow the dress’ bow shapes up fabulously. See it yourself:
This dress in made from yellow cotton fabric. On the back of the dress there are 4 buttons. I covered them with the same fabric as the dress is made of. The bow, the bottom and the top of the dress are decorated with glass beads, which makes this dress one of a kind. I handmade the hem of the sleeves so the seam is invisible.
Dress has a tulle petticoat which gives the dress volume. The front of the dress looks like this:
What do you think?

I know, she is my daughter.:)
Hello. I’ve just nominated you for the Sunshine Award! For all the rules, etc just follow the link.
They are both adorable, absolutely love!
Very cute! Love the beading – great detail! I love that you used cotton too; much better idea than something that can’t be washed easily and might end up being too warm. Nice!
Kay is making dresses for our granddaughters and I have to say we should think about putting “sparklies” on them. Too adorable!!!
very nice, just the right amount of sophistication, but defiantly made for a little girl!
The beading looks great! But also laborious – I envy You your patience.
Could You show a tulle petticoat close-up on photo?
I will try to take photos. But when? …hmm, I don’t know.
