Description

I have been dreaming of making this dress for a long time. It is soft and feminine. I used two layers of petal blue sheer fabric and my favorite dress pattern Simplicity #5591. I hand basted the lace to the bodice before using a machine satin stitch to apply it. The floating sleeves are from a top pattern, New Look #6808. This dress took some time and effort to make but was so worth it.

      I have had this dress pattern for years and have made at least seven dresses from it. This might be my new favorite.

      I don’t know if I feel like a princess or a bride.
