dress with quilted bodice
A dream dress from Carefree Clothes for Girls.
The details in this dress and fabrics play off the design so nicely and are so well designed.
It came together over a few evenings being finished off yesterday.
The bodice is made with three layers like a quilt - nani iro double gauze in ivory dot, batting and muslin. After the bodice is pieced it is then hand quilted and the little ruffle sleeves are added. The skirt is two layers - the nano iro gauze and muslin underneath with a ruffle being added to the muslin. Gold thread around the neckline and buttons up the back of the bodice are extra special touches.
Of all the princess dresses in the world this is the one that steals my heart. Also, good for playing 'married.'
