Fairy Godmother Fairy Tale

It gave me absolute delight to dress my girls for Pascha services this year.  They wore silk Oliver+S Fairy Tale dresses sewn by our fairy godmother. The dresses are sewn of silk dupioni with the softest cotton lining. They are exquisite.

Natasha's is a soft gold with cream lining.

Zoia's is an ice blue with the lightest blue lining.  I know I keep talking about the lining but seriously, this lining is no afterthought - it is so soft and adds to the overall luxury of the dresses.

Every detail of these dresses was meticulously executed.

And the girls adore them.  They got many, many compliments at church.  The bow in back has particular wow factor.

The dresses came with beautiful shrugs made in velvet and lined in coordinating silk charmeuse.  They wore the shrugs over the dresses to church for Easter but we did not manage to get any decent photos of them.  Thank you, Fairy Godmother!!


  1. Oh my goodness, these are GORGEOUS dresses! Your fairy godmother is an incredible seamstress, clearly! The fabrics! The big bows! So sumptuous. I bet you were all oooohing and aaaahing as you opened this box! Incredible.

  2. I'm so in love with these dresses!
    Truly perfect <3
