This is Neo and Charlotte, two of my grand daughters.
They both like to dress as princesses :)
Charlotte has a lot of princess dresses, but Neo doesn't have any.
This is Neo in the dress I made for Charlotte.
Neo's favorite princess is Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
I was very fortunate and found some super sparkly fabric to make a princess dress for Neo for her 3rd birthday.
My motto is the more sparkly, the better.
I spent days making this dress, there are 6 layers in the skirt!
I love the shirred overlay, it's made out of glittery tulle.
Do you think it looks like Belle's dress?
The bodice is lined with satin, but I didn't line the sleeves.
The hem is scalloped, I didn't have to do anything to it.
Do you notice the illusion of pink under the skirt?
I sewed three layers of pink tulle under the yellow lace skirt.
My cousin calls it crinoline, which brings back lots of girly memories from my childhood :)
I'm excited to see Neo's reaction when she opens her princess dress.
I think she will be in "princess heaven"!!!
