New York, New Yo...
A Tinkerbell dress I made for my niece’s Sweet 16. She requested that I also made a princess style skirt that could be removed for the big reveal. This dress was made in 3 parts, the tulle A shaped skirt for lift, the Tinkerbell short dress with a corset top and a total of 5 leaves for the skirt and a princess style skirt. The princess skirt is open in the back and ties with a big sash for easy removal.
My sweet niece (who does not sew) brought me the fabric and to my shock it was not the best for a princess style dress. The fabric for the skirt is heavy, shiny, stretchy and more suitable of a swimsuit. I managed to somehow make it work. The top is a satin fabric with glitter and the short skirt is covered in organza. The princess skirt is also covered in a type of organza but it’s softer to the touch.
