Today is Cinderella day....and I wanted to make a Cinderella dress- but I wanted it to be a little more casual, shorter and made with cotton- one because it is faster to sew, and two because I wanted to show folks what a cotton one woulf look like....
Well this is a perfect case of what I have in my head disn't translate quite the way I had hoped...looks a bit mor elike Belle's village dress. I am happy with it, and I think it has some fun options...just wasn't quite as Cinderella as i had hoped. My little lady however immediately called it a Cinderella dress (that was short lived and she decided it is a Rapunzel dress)
I used the same pattern from Little Lizard King (http://www.littlelizardking.com/catalog-2/princess-dress/) but skipped the elastic in the sleeves, shortened the skirt a few inches, and made the skirt slightly less wide/gathered.
I am sure I will be adding to the princess dress collection~ I have lots of ideas to try for the other princesses, and also thought it would make a great fall or holiday themed dress....and even a super cute witch dress!
Don't forget today is the last day to enter our giveaway ocer at Nap time Crafters!!!!
