The every day dress is designed to use your favorite cotton/woven prints. Use fun trims or embellishing techniques to add a signature creative touch to the everyday version. With the every day dress, your sweetheart will be ready to conquer hearts all day long.
The special occasion dress is designed to give you an easy to follow tutorial that allows you to create a fantastic and beautiful tea length dress for those really special moments. With layer upon layer of fluffy tulle, your sweetheart will be a show-stopper at any special occasion, from the daddy-daughter-dance, first communion, pageants, birthday parties, dress-ups, formal dances, or as the most precious flower girl ever.
Get your creativity flowing by embellishing the bodice with bias tape, trims or a lace overlay. The sweetheart neckline and delicate criss-cross straps create an enchanted feel.
