There is a long story behind this Christmas dress...but the dress was created for my special little girl. We looked at the Storybook website and Lauren wanted this one badly. It was days before Christmas and there was no way it would arrive on time. I drove to the fabric store and "whipped it up" with a fever that I did not know I had. I think I used a Daisy Kingdom pattern for the skirt and a skating costume for the top. The top is red stretch knit and the skirt an acetate or taffeta...and of course trimmed with marabou.
