Birthday dress for Leslie
I made this to match the Carin room at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo for her birthday. The room is decorated entirely in pink and gold and yes, that is the lower half of a cherub above her head.
The parameters were animal print and pink. I used a vintage pattern and made a few alterations to it. I added the inverted box pleat at the front, lowered the neckline and made the sleeves fuller with a slit along the sides.
