Yes I have to be honest it took a lot for me to come to terms with the creation of this dress for her. She is a gorgeous always. But here I go making her fabulous because that what she wanted… Being her Dad kinda put in a weird space. I think I worked it out.
The dress is sewn sequins with a wired top and a completely boned lining for support. fitted knee and trumpeted with a fishtail Train

Material Notes

Stretch Sequins gold




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Evening Wear

    My dad made a pair of shorts for my teddy bear ones and sewed up the leg holes… I kow which Dad I’d prefer.

    It looks gorgeous and if it makes you feel a little bit more confident, she looks chaste too.

    I have a problem getting my head around the fact that you are old enough to be this ladies dad but that aside I am in awe of your work! This is absolutely stunning and short of looking fabulous, your daughter looks every bit a goddess!
