Custom made vs "Off-the-Rack"
Such was the case last night in a department store. I spotted a really cute little dress that was so perfect for Christmas and just bespoke granddaughter Irby's name, that I couldn't leave it there. Yes, I could have made it, and it would have been much more well-made and elegant, but I couldn't have made it for that price (it was half-price!!)
This little dress is made of lightweight velour or panne velvet, I am not sure which. No, it is not heirloom and no, it is not the way I would have made it, but it has SPARKLES and FUR, and tulle RUFFLE on the slip, and she will absolutely love this PRINCESS dress!!! (I picture her wearing this on Christmas Sunday and it is snowing)
I am still a child at heart at Christmas, and this sometimes makes me lose all my sensibilities!!
