My daughter got baptized in January. We both loved how her Christmas dress turned out but we wanted to make just a few changes. We wanted more of an over-sized key hole in the back instead of having the open back. We decided to have the key hole be tied closed instead of the braided fabric closer. We did a lace overlay on the bodice of the dress and we loved the idea of having accordion pleated chiffon for the the skirt of this dress.
I was unable to find the accordion pleated chiffon at any fabric store. I was way past having enough time to order it from an online provider. Lucky me, I was walking through Sears and hanging on the rack in front of me was a womens accordion pleated chiffon skirt. The only size they had left was a large. So I purchased it with lots of excitement. But how would I take it in and hem it into a High-Low hem like we wanted? Could I do it without it raveling to pieces?
But we made it work and we were both pleased with the results of our creation.
