Description

I made this dress for my 26th birthday party, which had a quinceanera theme. This may be a bit hipster for most quinceaneras, but it works for me!

The pattern is self drafted, with a modified bodice block and a half-circle skirt. Hand picked zipper and hand stitched hem, all that jazz.

The fabric is from thrift store sheets! And the tiara is totally from Claire’s. Like you do.
