  • I need Confetti.....

May 24, 2018

Have a special occasion? Well, I think you may like this next dress we just added to our website. 

The Confetti Dress

 

Every once and awhile, a need arises for a "something-special-dress".  Yes, that is what we call it around here, because my daughter would prefer to wear jeans on a daily basis.  She is 11, and dresses are a thing of the past.  However, we both learned our lesson last year, when we showed up at another special school ceremony totally underdressed.  I was more embarrassed then my daughter, because I run an online boutique, and I should have known better.  However, to my defense I was a bit busy, and my daughter often looks down at my creations, as if to say "Mom, you don't understand me at all!" So, I decided it was as good as a time if any to teach her a little lesson.  It worked.

This week, my daughter graduates from elementary school.  Yes, she is moving on to Middle School.  Those dreaded middle school days are upon us.  So, I decided to make her a dress.  This time, I was going to be prepared.  I opted for the Moda Ombre Confetti fabric in a navy blue.  It is a gorgeous fabric.  The fabric fades from dark to light, and like confetti it has gold metallic polka dots randomly sprayed all over the fabric.  I opted to buy three different colors, which are being offered in our shop: Apricot, Navy, and Teal.  

 

 

I will admit that we planned this photoshoot at the same time that I began making the dress.  The reason is simple.  As I said above, my daughter does not like to wear dresses, and she usually does not like what I sew.  I don't take it personal.  I was a teenager too, although I always loved what my mother wore, and I could not wait to raid her closet.  Such a difference in our relationship.  Anyways, my daughter seems to love the pictures I take and once she sees them she actually falls in love with the dresses.  Yes, a definite AHA moment.  Now she looks forward to taking pictures and yes another dress made by mom.  

I don't have a lot of time to sew for her anymore, nor much available time to photograph, but in this case my sewing machine needed to be repaired.  So together we drove to the city, and while we waited for my machine, we took some nice pictures.  For this shoot, I rented a really great 70-200mm lens so I could test drive it. I was very excited about the dress, but my love for photography grew by leaps and bounds because of this lens.  If you can afford it, and you love to take pictures, I highly recommend the canon 70-200mm.   We had a great time exploring downtown Pensacola and all of its' lovely spots.  I was sad that the weather was a bit gloomy, but we are sort of in a "rainy" stage lately.  It could not be avoided.  C'est la vie. 

I hope you enjoy our pictures, and the dress.  I am excited to finish the other two colors soon, but now it is time to get back to work.  Enjoy!

P.S. Happy Birthday Mom!

I am a little biased when it comes to seeing a baby in a Kinder Kouture dress.  Are you?  She is 11mos. old, and just starting to stand.  Oh my that brings back such lovely memories.
