Work in Progress: Coronation Ball Gown

I have been terribly busy churning out four new items for the Fairytale Collection, and I couldn't be happier with the way they've turned out! I already revealed the Blue Pinafore Dress a few weeks ago, and I am excited to give some small glimpses into my process with a certain coronation ball gown I was given the opportunity to create for a special little princess.

The Queen Mother who commissioned me for this particular wardrobe wanted something fairly specific, so I took all of her wants and added some of my ideas. I came up with a little front bow detail to liven up the bodice, but that was scratched after some further discussion. The colors were to be a dark teal, golden yellow, and deep purple/ blue, almost black.

I loved how the colors looked when they finally came together on the dress. Since this was a custom made item, I used the little princess' measurements to create a one-of-a-kind ball gown that I hope she loves to dance around in!
