Dress-Fitting with the Quinceañeras

Quinceañera preparations are currently taking over my blog. Let that also be a reflection of my life at this moment -- albeit a fun one, hah. Only five days away! :)

Yesterday, I went with some of the quinceañera girls to get their dresses fitted! This year, thanks to a donor, the girls had their dresses custom made at a shop in nearby Itzapa. They were able to choose everything -- the color, the style, whether to get gloves and/or a jacket made along with it -- for truly one-of-a-kind dresses.

It was a really fun girls' afternoon out, and by the end of the day, Sharon and I were dying for our own custom made vestidos too. :) Check out the photos!

Irma's beautiful pink dress!

Reina with her dress-in-process. The final version will have tons of black adornments.

Maria standing on the table for her fitting haha.

Jenny's dress is going to have a gorgeous train! (Which makes us nervous for the waltz!)

Looking adorable all gathered around the sewing room.

Sandy

Me and Maria. Love her dress!

Looking through the catalog to pick out their tiaras!
