We’d been speaking about it for a while before I actually got around to creating it, she asked me before Christmas, but living in Italy it was hard to find supplies! While I was home for Easter in April, Elspeth and I went to find the flowers she’d want on her crown so I could finally start creating it!
We both decided, as her dress would be black, white flowers would be best, simply as it would lighten her overall outfit. I wanted to my best ever job on this crown as it’s really the most important one I’ve made.
We decided on three different sized flowers for the crown, two different sized leaves, and also pearls to add a special touch.
I’m really pleased with how the crown turned out, it probably took me about three hours in total to make it perfect. The finishing touch was the crochet ribbon to tie it together.
Her prom isn’t until July, but I’m not going to be home until then so I had to make it as early as possible to ensure she actually had it for the day! I will hopefully post some more photos of her wearing it in the near future!
She will be the most beautiful floral princess at the prom!
