Modified Briar's: Bodice Ruffle and Crop Top

Today we’ve got a special guest, Serena Garciadiaz with Serena Garcia Photography. You may have seen her work before, and she is the one that captured the fabulous unicorn photos that inspired #CKCUnicornWeek!! She happened to test Briar’s and then just kept on making them, adding her own spin to it each one. She’s here to share how she did it all! Without further ado, here is Serena.



Who is as excited as me for Briar’s pattern release? We LOVE Briar's and all it has to offer. This is the perfect dress for a wedding, flower girl dress, costuming, ball gown, and we loved it for our unicorn photoshoot!




The pattern comes with many different options, a top, dress, maxi, and romper! It’s the perfect pattern to add all those pretty ribbons and trims, mix/match fabric, and the list can go on and on.
