My daughter and three nieces wanted to be princesses for halloween (of course) and sewing being my favorite thing to do I happily obliged. Amelia, my daughter, is in the darker purple dress, Reagan in the champagne velvet, Cara in the light purple and white and Caitlyn in the pink and white.
Sorry for all the pictures but I didnt want to create 4 seperate creations since they are all really the same dress pattern.
Amelia: purple satin, tanish and gold rick rack
Reagan: champagne stretchy velvet with light yellow lining for the sleeves, green and gold wired ribbon for the trim
Cara: purple slinky material (I’m not sure what kind of material it is, just that it was really hard to hold in place and sew- even with the 1000 pins I used), white material for the front of the dress(again not sure what it is), gold and white lace, gold, purple, and white ribbon for lacing in front
Caitlyn: pink and white costume satin, blue ribbons for trim and lacings
Siplicity pattern 5520
