Hello to all of you wonderful ladies of VFT!!! Its Leah here, the designer behind Marissa!! Have you ladies been patiently waiting for that time of year to roll around where you can prepare for parties, special events or special occasions? Well that time of year is right around the corner, and it's time to prepare for all that glitters and fanciness!! Marissa is that perfect fancy dress for all of your special occasions!


Marissa has a rounded high neckline with an inset ruffle and illusion or everyday square inset chest! Marissa is complete with a full skirt with lining, zipped back for closure and optional sash! Marissa is such a classy, feminine, lady like dress that your sweet girl will have all the eyes on her when entering the room!! Marissa will make your girl sparkle! Speaking of sparkle, you can also have baby sister shine too, because Marissa comes in BABY as well as sizes GIRLS 2-9/10!!! How great is that!!

Also, while Marissa can light up the room she can also be an everyday wear with Marissa everyday version! Switch the illusion chest out for timeless cotton and you have a eye grabbing, everyday, showstopper! Below is an inspiration photo of Marissa!

 I was completely intrigued and inspired by the feminine, lady like look of this dress, I knew I had to have it for my little lady! I love this timeless look, but changed a few details. I envisioned a higher neckline, for a more vintage feel, and added a show-stopping large bow in the back. This dress really is so special and heirloom feeling. At the same time, I also love a simpler, everyday look, so the "everyday version", where the inset is not sheer, is perfect too! It's a bit of an easier sew, and that little space on the inset is the perfect place to embellish or embroider!! So much room for creativity!!

I would like to tell you ladies that our elite testers that we have, that exude sooo much creativity and talent seriously put together some AMAZING Marissa's!! Pictured below is a collage of some of our amazing testers!! I hope you enjoy sewing, twirling, and seeing your princess in Marissa!
