If you had asked me a few years ago what a Quinceanera was, I wouldn’t have had the faintest idea. But now I know a bit more, thanks to my Cinderella dress.

A Quinceanera is like a Sweet 16 celebration for the Hispanic culture, it’s a girl’s party when she turns 15 (or in some cases 14).  This celebration is a huge deal… I mean huge! It’s sometimes bigger than the girl’s future wedding!  To top it all off, the girl wear a fancy dress!

A girl named Amaya chose my dress for her special day!

Even more special than making this dress for her, I got to meet her in person and attend her celebration!

Amaya’s Quinceanera was all Cinderella theme, from the cake all the way to a pumpkin carriage ice sculpture!

And I did have to do a few fixes during the evening (this is thanks to many dance practices)…
