Making Stuff: Chinese New Year Dress

by This is Carrie on February 16, 2010

When Princess got the American Girl doll, Ivy, for Christmas, she immediately started begging for a matching “Chinese New Year Dress”. A week later, I found this women’s dress at Savers and I knew it was meant to be.

AFTER: (finished on Chinese New Year’s Eve)

That dress is so beautiful! It reminds me so much of one of my best friend’s wedding dresses (at least her dress for the Chinese ceremony….she also had a traditional Christian ceremony). The style, fabric and even details are very close and I always loved it!
