La Vie En Rose: Making Gigi’s Dress

Well, the first week of Project Run & Play is over and I managed to squeak through.
I have been keeping a photo diary of some of the steps I took to design my dresses.
Sister, 1915
You can find these photos on my Pinterest boards
I wanted to design something that reminded me of an early twentieth century child.
Some of my designing process or what I remembered to photograph……
Above is the dress before I made a new, flared sleeve the skirt straight.
Have a nice week!

  8. Gorgeous, really. I´m clapping from my sofa! I wish I had the patience to make something like this pretty dress

  9. Justine, I really liked your whole look, loved the dusky pink & the soft ruffles on your 9 yr old’s dress with the exposed metal zipper in the back it mixes the hard & soft, but it totally works. When I saw it, I thought for sure you’d be in the top 3, I don’t understand the voting.

  10. It’s beautiful! I never dared to put my little ones into silk except for special occasion dresses. I love how you’ve captured the essence of the vintage dresses.

  11. This is so adorable!! I’ll take one in my size :)

  12. I love the antique and Victorian look dress. Well worth all the efforts. Fantastic!

    *gasp* cannot speak. Too adorable for words!

  14. So wonderful. A dress I think any girl would like to wear and any mom would be happy to put on their child.
