Girls and Laces

Girls and Laces 

Shasha was so excited about her class concert last week and she had been working so hard with her choir practices , I decided to make her a dress fit for the occasion. It's been so long since I've made her a proper twirly kind of dress that I nearly forgot how to go about it! 

So here it is, the works ! Tucks on the bodice, lace collar, puffed sleeves with lace and piping, full gathered skirt and more lace! 

I love how she's always so serious and pays attention, no fidgeting this one. 

Those are handmade Belgium lace collars, they were just too pretty to use ! I said that once she's grown out of the dress, those collars are coming off haha. I bought them in a beautiful little shop by the water in Gent, a medieval University town with an old ruined castle and winding canals along real cobbled streets.

Weather here has been great, spring has finally shown up, tulips will be coming out soon , and yes, we can finally eat ice cream outside !

Love from Rotterdam !!
