Winter sewing also!

Their school had a Father-daughter dance planned -- H got very excited that it was on his birthday, and made reservation in record time, requested the day off, and rented a suit. So of course I must pull out all the stops for K's dress. This is another beautiful velour knit, but thinner than the raspberry one... it looks like crushed velvet and is very very soft, almost liquid in texture.
Drafted from the sloper for knits, with 3/4 sleeves with a slight puff shoulder (my/K's preferred style really, why don't they make prettier dresses with sleeves?) and a full 42" circle skirt. This twirls amazingly, a very very important thing for a dance.
It needed something extra, so I made a little flower from white satin and silver trimmings from a few sewing projects for the dance studio for her waist, and another for her hair. 
They both felt and looked super-special!
