Fashion Show Breakdown | Peter Pan Dress
This dress gets its name from the mock Peter Pan collar applique. It was one of the first dresses I have ever made from when I was taking classes at First Samples last year, and the material is a light blue/teal sateen. I felt that it needed a lot of modification to make it more interesting, so I added the mock collar, sleeves, covered buttons, and a belt. The material for the additions came from some fabric scraps my grandmother gave me. As with many of my grandmother's pieces I have become the humble recipient of, it was apparent that this material was supposed to be a shirt of some sort. I rather like the new use of the fabric instead, don't you?
Miss Erin worked the runway with a lollipop in hand. The shoes are vintage heels that were picked up some time ago at a Goodwill.
This ensemble was purchased at the fashion show. I am so thrilled that it went to a good home!
