Description

This was made for my daughter as she is the flower girl in a Quinceanera. It has lots of ruffles and lace. fully gather skirt. I made a petticoat to go under out of a slip. Just take tulle and gather it as tight as it goes and sew onto slip, then loop at the bottom and continue gathering and looping until you cover the entire slip.

NOTE DON’T USE PRE-GATHERED LACE ON THE SLEEVES! THEY KEPT FLIPPING UP! I SHOULD HAVE USED ONLY THE FLAT LACE TO MAKE IT HANG BETTER!

Material Notes

princess satin purple and white, pre gathered double lace and ungathered lace. gold trim, zipper, hook and eye. slip and half a bolt of tulle.
