Sunrise Dress Tutorial

I am going to be totally honest here. This was my least favorite dress when we sketched out all of the designs. In the end, I LOVED it! Sometimes my 10yo’s fashion ideas make me raise an eyebrow, but it was her dress, so I went along with it. Yeah, she was right.  This time.
