The Holidays are fast approaching along with parties, family gatherings and church services. This may be the first time some of your family members get to meet your sweet princess, or it may have been a long time since they have seen each other. You want to impress everyone with your adorable little daughter, but what should she wear?
This is the perfect time to purchase a fancy dress for your child. Children’s formal wear has taken the industry by storm. You will be amazed at the variety of dresses available these days. Princess style dresses are always popular, but if they are not your scene, look for charming bubble dresses, or something more sophisticated. The sky is the limit. Whatever you imagine, you can find these days.
Rich reds are always winter favorites. Purple and hues of lavender are big this year, as are bold, electric colors such as magenta and bright orange. Even black and white have come together for children’s wear. You will also find choices in the length of the gowns. Consider the child’s age and mobility when choosing a dress. Toddlers may have an easier time in a shorter, above the knee dress. Older girls may prefer a long, full skirt they can twirl in.
Look for a dress that will be comfortable as well as stylish. Check seems for rough edges, and if your dress has crinoline or netting in the skirt, be sure there is a lining to protect your little one’s legs. The last thing you want in your photos is a fidgety child scratching her legs. Quality dressmakers will consider these things, and the extra measure will go a long way.
This is the time of year for shining, sparkling celebrations. Gowns with elaborate embellishments may be too much at other times of the year, but not now! Embrace the season with a dress to match the mood.
