Today we have Brianne sharing her OTT look with us.......


Sometimes girls need to be extra girly! Sometimes girls need to be over the top! And there is no better time than the holidays with lots of parties and lots of fun.

Foo Foo Threads Sugarplum Dress is ultra girly.  I adore the skirt and the dipped front.  However, it's pretty cold in Virginia.  We need long sleeves.  I mashed Mouse House Creations Norah bodice, for the sleeves, with the Mouse House Creations Caroline bodice, for the zipper, AND the Sugarplum dress bodice to keep the front dip. Phew!  After drafting, I was super brave and jumped in without a muslin.  My work payed off; it's a perfect fit!

Honestly, I was a bit nervous about about this project.  I'm not really an "over the top" person and didn't know the first thing about making an OTT dress.  I usually only make daily wear clothes for my kids.  Nothing is more frustrating than spending hours making a dress for it to get dirty or just hang in the closet.  BUT it is time for me to learn and experience new things. 

After I finished and the dress was hanging on the wall, I thought "that thing is ridiculous".  The next day my daughter was very excited to take photos and asked to wear it all day.  I'm so pleased she likes the dress and I must admit, it's pretty stinkin' cute on!

Hope you have an Over the Top Holiday!
