Dress for a Princess

It’s my cousin’s little girl’s 4th birthday. She is fierce with a heart of gold – the true makings of a princess. I knew exactly what I wanted to make her. A dress she can wear for when we go to Disneyland or to prance around at home.

I had Disney princess fabric that was waiting to be used for the right occasion. The pattern called for buttons (which I finally know how to do) and a placket (which was easy once I understood how to do one properly). Youtube is wonderful – I was able to watch the proper way to make a placket and buttonholes without screwing up the whole dress.  I love buttonholes now, btw!!!

Here is a glimpse of how it turned out.
