A Fairy Princess

I guess I've been a bit busy since my last post! LOL!!! After mailing out all of my post cards from the Swap, I received 10 gorgeous post cards in return! Oh, how fun it was to actually receive FUN mail every day!!! It was so exciting to WANT to go get the mail! :)

Ok, onto my tiny princess!!!
My niece, Story, just celebrated her 2nd birthday with a Princess and Knights party!  I had been dying to pop open one of the new patterns that I just got at Hobby Lobby's $1 sale, and one of them was a Disney Fairy dress!

Oh, how I envisioned #dollbaby in a fluffy pink dress...made by me! know, something like this:

EEEEEEEEKKKK! I still can hardly believe that I actually made this thing! The bodice was made with pink satins and a lining, with some trim on the front.  The petals were made from organza...the hardest material EVER to sew!...I think...I really haven't tried ALL the fabrics, but you know, when you can't sew a straight line on a fabric, it can be dumped in the "hard to sew" pile :)  Anyways, finally, the lower skirt was made with 6 yards of tulle and a lining to keep it soft on her legs.

I love the length on it, which keeps her from tripping, and I added velcro in the back to make it easier for me to get her in and out of it.
Well, it was exactly as I imagined it!  She was a beautiful fairy princess!!!!
I love you, baby girl! :D
