Snow Princess Dress

Well blogger will not let me upload pictures this morning but it better be a different story by this evening. My grandaughter Morgan has been elected, at her high school, to be the Snow Princess for the Christmas parade today!! She is wearing a long white one shoulder satin tailor made ball gown embellished with alcenon lace. Her delicate little shoulders will be draped with a white satin shawl also tailor made.

hahahaha....... sounds beautiful doesn't it? Well you see she is a itty bitty size 2 and it is November, therefor there are NO long white size 2 dresses in southwest Virginia! Of course I was chomping at the bit to make her gown but we gave it our best shot in 2 states, here and Ga., with no luck. We also only had one week to find this dress. So back to the drawing board. I mean what better way to try out a new sewing machine than to sew slippery satin and lace? It sewed beautifully!

So I will try to be back later this evening with the dress pics, parade pics and pics of her riding in a convertible doing her Miss America wave, wearing a Becky Moran original!
