"My darling, simply elegant . . . you are ever, Graceful"
"Blossoming, beautiful, . . . you are Divine"
Divine is wearing a Grace Kelly inspired gown, but with added youth.
Baby piping around the petal 3/4 sleeves,
fire treated blooms,
and the boat neckline, for a modest, but retro look.
Spring green checked dupioni silk on the bias for the waistband and "stems"
No big dill inscribed on the back, for whimsy.
This was quite the labor intensive dress. I admit that I even had Divine sewing flowers on last minute and cutting the little circles for them in preparation. We barely made the deadline, getting photos just before the sun went down. Whew!
The competition is grueling and narrowing.
