Grammy's Masterpiece

Lillian's Grammy loves to sew pretty little dresses for Lillian. Inspired by reading Katherine's fabulous crafting blog, we decided to borrow the book 'Sewing Clothes Kids Love' and see if there were any interesting new patterns to try. Grammy was inspired and wanted to try her hand at making the beautiful Manhattan Dress described in the book. She upped the challenge by using pieces of upholstery velvet destined for the landfill. Making the dress was definitely a challenge, but the resulting dress was truly a masterpiece fit for a princess.
