A Cinderella Quinceanera

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 coming out 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!  The girl gets to were a huge, 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)…


Oops, forgot to mention; I also made a matching doll dress!IMG_0845
