“Clara” was inspired by one of our family’s holiday favorites, The Nutcracker. I wanted to create a special dress that could be worn in cooler weather like the holiday season. Clara features a squared neckline, beautiful sleeves, and a beautiful double layer skirt. This dress also has a gorgeous sash that ties in a big bow in the back. I have also added lots of lace and ribbon to this dress to make it even more feminine. This dress is truly spectacular and is sure to be a favorite.
