KENNEWICK, WA – Alexandra Sorenson has always had a creative gene. She has always done theater, played the violin, loved art, and now she loves making dresses.
“I love Disney and the other fantastic movies, so I just wanted to take what I see in these stories and make it come true.” Sorenson said.
It was last July that Sorenson, 18, made her first dress.
“I saw this dress on Instagram which was the most beautiful thing and then I said I had to do it. Since then I have created my own designs and recreated Disney princess dresses,” says Sorenson.

“I made this dress in 4 days.” Sorenson said.

“I hope I can start creating them for people so everyone can see them. Sorenson said.
