Fit for a princess (or two)

Last time I mentioned my sewing energies were focused on making princess sundresses for our little girlies to wear in the Magic Kingdom. I wanted them to feel like princesses minus the itchy, scratchy, and sweaty from polyester costume dresses. I got the dresses done and they were pretty excited to model them.

I'll be making some t-shirt shrugs following this cute tutorial because there's a lot of white shoulders here that don't need to see the Florida sun.

What the girls don't know is that we bought glitter hair spray, hair paint, wands, and tiaras to complete their princess transformation. We'll surprise them the morning they're going to wear the dresses.

In case you're interested, I adapted the dresses from The Juliet Dress pattern.


  1. Darling dresses! Sure to be worn many, many times!

  2. My girls want to know if you make these in...well...big girls sizes? LOL!! Way too cute! :)
