Olivia is a huge Sofia the First fan, which is why we decided to throw her a Sofia the First inspired 4th Birthday Party. Willow Bean Studio, the same place that Olivia’s Pinkalicious inspired dress, has been working on a Sofia the First inspired dress for the big day and I’m so excited to share the final result with you!
Jenni, the amazing talent behind Willow Bean Studio, sent me a conceptual drawing and a photo of the swatches. I shared them with Olivia and she had a bit of input on the design/style of her Sofia the First inspired dress, which I thought was terrific. Although Disney’s Sofia is a true princess ballgown, we decided to go with a shorter knee-length dress that was poufy and could TWIRL. Originally Jenni was going to include embroidery of Sofia on the bodice, but Olivia nixed that because “Sofia’s dress doesn’t have that!”. Jenni’s concept came to life beautifully. I love that this dress can be worn any day of the week, or it can be dressed up and worn for special occasions. It really is the perfect dress!
The Sofia the First Dress pattern will be available via Willow Bean Studio. If you don’t already do so, make sure to follow her on Facebook and if your children have a Baptism or Communion coming up, keep Willow Bean Studio in mind. She creates amazing one-of-a-kind heirloom outfits utilizing your Wedding Dress or other special fabric. Seriously beautiful creations.
