One of my granddaughters has the nickname of Princess and I definitely had her in mind when I made this dress.
I started with this pattern. . .
My granddaughter loves long dresses and I am sure most young girls her age do also since they are the essence of “princess” panache.
I found this gorgeous teal colored fabric that is covered with princesses (of course) and I lined the dress with teal broadcloth to maintain maximum comfort for the delicate skin of any princess that may have the opportunity to wear such a dress.
The dress has deep tucks which form pleats in the front and back. These tucks make the skirt full and flowing – sooo necessary for proper princess twirling.
The sleeves come to just above the elbow and are high, puffy and trimmed with eyelet.
I added a large satin bow to the back of the dress for a touch of that special “princess” elegance sooo needed by young ladies.
The finished product is something my little sweetie is sure to love and I know she will be hoping it does not sell!!
