I was having a conversation with the mother of the model I was about to photograph. I told her that this dress was not going onto our website. It was a pretty design, but I did not think the long sleeves would sell. Instead I had decided to make the same dress without the sleeves - NIKITA DRESS. She obviously did not agree with me by the look on her face, and once I looked at our model I understood why.
This design is not too different then many other dresses I have made in the past. I still use the same classic pattern, with a square neck, button closure in the back. No sash for those of you would prefer no bulk in the back, and allow this dress to be somewhat less dressy. Three quarter length sleeves, and a somewhat shorter length which is really cute on the younger children. Don't worry.....if you would prefer the regular length, I will gladly add those two inches for you. Just leave me a note during checkout, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The one thing I love about this dress is the colors and the combination of the aquas and pinks. It is so pretty. So vibrant and cute on a little girl. I would love to find some clothing for myself in these colors. Reminds me of summer!
I did make this dress for Valentines Day, but the reason I added the NIKITA LONG SLEEVE DRESS to my website, is because it can be worn at any time of the year - Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter (with boots...how cute!)
