There's a Christmas Diner at the school of my daughters every year and they all want to look their best. So I order (what my daughters think) the most beautiful dress at H&M every year, bring them to my SIL, who can make art of the most dull and spiritless hair, and for the occasion I put a little bit mascara on their lashes.
My oldest daughter wanted a black satin dress with embroidered faux pearls. On Pinterest I saw a beautiful crocheted choker, that would fit perfectly with the dress. Unfortunately the pattern wasn't available for order anymore in the accompanying Etsy store, so I had to make something up.
And here's The Dress!
