my daughter loves cinderella, and that is the only thing she wanted to be this year. the main dress was a pain to work with. the light blue was a dream in comparision. she has a crinoline under the dress. i made an error in my graduated measurements and made the whole thing her hip size round, so i didn’t connect the sides. that was a happy accident because in the toon, it is kind of flat in the front and the fullness is in the sides and back. i covered up the front pleats on accident with the light blue sides. all in all it turned out great and she wont trip on a dress that is too big.
i used mccall’s costume pattern 2856
sateen, taffeta, tulle, elastic, & zipper
