Description

So, I’ve been wanting to make a princess dress for my 4 year old daughter. She loves to dress up, and princesses are her favorite. I wanted to make something fluffy and huge, so that when she wears it, not only does she look like a princess, she feels like one too! I didn’t have a scarf so I found a cute remnant I had lying around and of course this girl loves pink, so it worked out well. I left out the bust area, because, well, she’s 4 and that would be weird. I replaced the skirt part with layers of gathered tulle and made gathered sleeves with the same tulle and some elastic. I added a couple of glittery star applique’s to the bodice that my MIL had sent me for her. I used more elastic to attach the skirt to the top so that she could just slip it on. I turned out great and she looks gorgeous!
