Let me start out by stating the obvious, I am NOT a professional seamstress. Anything you see me sew, I have taught myself how. I don't use patterns when sewing for my home, so it will be mostly simple lines with a few tricks thrown in.
When planning how to decorate My Oldest Daughter's room one of my biggest goals was to make it a room she wouldn't easily grow out of and one that took advantage of the chance to still be very girly.
So we stuck with very classic fabrics (to give it staying power) and added girly touches in the design. I love the fullness of the bottom fabric, I think it has the look of a ball gown. The beading on the fringe adds a touch of grown up elegance.
