This time I really wanted to create a very special dress that would be perfect for any special occasion that might require longer sleeves. I was inspired by one of our favorite holiday classics, The Nutcracker, hence why this one is named “Clara”. My Clara features a beautiful square neckline which is trimmed in delicate lace and pretty ribbon. The sleeves are full and not quite full length and they have a gorgeous satin ribbon bows on them. Clara also has a beautiful double layer skirt and the underskirt has a pretty ruffle. Finally, a sash which ties into a big bow in the back of the dress. This dress also uses lace to add that special feminine touch. if you love the look of heirloom dresses, you will adore Clara!

Sizes 3-8
