Tinkerbell Sweet 16 party dress

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.

Material Notes

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.

    This is a beautiful dress. What do you use to make the holes in the dress? Gromments?

    Oh so sweet. Given the fabric you got, I think it turned out exceptionally good.

    Tell her not to forget the accessories like Tink’s little hammer and to make herself some acorn barrettees or something.

    At least add wings. You gotta have wings.

    I’m really feeling this by the way for a sweet 16. Can ya tell?
