OK, this two piece outfit was an extreme job of patience as I successfully handstiched a very heavy trim with a special stitch, wired my own ribbons for flowers, hot-fixed numerous swarovski crystals and added a handmade creative scroll appliques. The skirt was made of bias cut organza cut in several widths and gathered unto a waistband. The ruffles were made with a zigzag stitch and a rolled hem foot. I would have used a serger but the color wanted by my customer was to be an exact match.
This was not your typical pageant dress! Really stands out from all the other “cookie cutter” cupcake pageant dresses out there.
Organza and stretch satin was purchased at our local Han**** Fabrics store. We used this source because it was the perfect color for a beautiful young pageant girl. The crystal banding actually looked as though it had pointed backs because the sparkle factor was amazing!
