Pearl of the Sea Dress by sadwonderland Pearl of the Sea Dress by sadwonderland
This is a custom-designed play dress for a special little girl named Emma, whose father is a close family friend.

Emma's favorite princess is Ariel, and her parents wanted an original design from Lucky Crown Boutique for Emma's 4th birthday. I found this amazing skirt fabric at a discount supplier in Philly and was inspired to create the rest of the dress around it! Some added features are genuine swarovski crystal and many many pearls.

I also created a little green sea star hair clip to go with the outfit.

I really hope Emma likes her dress!

me too! I remember when I was 11 my friends and I had a trunk of old prom and evening dresses from the 80's and 70's that we would dress up in for fun. That was about the closest I had to costumes as a kid.

Yeah, same I used to wear my mum's old evening dresses, and sometimes she'd get some from op-shops, even then it was still really fun.
I did have some pretty great fairy wings though :)

Ah, I remember at kindergarden I envied a girl sooo deeply for having a pretty lacey-satin dress, I still feel that grief! How lucky little Emma is, I'm so sure she will love it!

Is it harder or easier to go from working in adult sizes to children's sizes?
Reply
:iconsadwonderland:
sadwonderland Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
I think it's much easier because kid's sizes are more standardized :)

This is the prettiest little princess dress I have ever seen! And I think the fact that it was handmade and not bought at a retail store makes it all the more special. Lucky little girl!
