Heavenly Princess

encouraging femininity

Abby’s dresses

Inspiration: a client! A five-year-old princess who loves to dress beautifully all the time 🙂 (my kinda girl)

Materials: fabric from the tutti frutti collection at Joann’s, Sense and Sensibility Girls’ Regency dress, buttons, a tiny bit of bias tape

Construction: the only changes I made to the pattern were to take off the sleeves and make a half-circle skirt instead of a gathered one. The little blue dress I made for her doll. I created the pattern myself, using the shapes of the girls’ dress as a guide. I bound the doll dress’s hem with bias tape because that’s easier than turning a hem on this fabric (besides, it makes it pretty cute, doesn’t it?).
