Description

My daughter asked me to make a dress for her to wear at her mother-in-law’s wedding. She chose the Princess dress out of the library.
All in all it was not difficult to make, thought the fitted bodice doesn’t allow much room for the arms to move properly. I would rather recommend a fabric with a bit of stretch but still some body. Due to my daughter’s curved back, the pleats at the back of the skirt kind of stick out, but she really looked cute in it. This pattern also comes with the fitted skirt instead of the flared skirt which I will certainly make for myself. Keeping you posted on this!

      Thanks! Yes the colour is a bright vibrant red which goes well with my daughter’s complexion.
