Quinceañera!

A dear friend just had her Quinceañera--a coming-of-age celebration, popular in Mexican culture, when a young woman turns fifteen. She and I worked together to make her gown, an ambitious project for a young seamstress! She used Vintage Vogue 1094, and lots of rich blue satin, tulle and silver-sparkled sheer! The gown was gorgeous, but even better was the glow of feminine grace on Julie!



The lovely quincianera surrounded by family and friends in traditional garments!

I really enjoyed the opportunity to get a taste of mexican culture!
