My little princess

This princess dress and cape set is a creation of my mum’s.  I think she got the sparkly fabric off a lady on TNN – it used to be the skirt of an evening dress.  I can’t remember who Mum said she got it off, but anyway thank you TNNer whose name I can’t recall!

Mum modified a couple of patterns from the 70s to make the dress, and she just made up the cape without a pattern.  The pink fabric is some stuff I had in my stash that I’d found on the $1 table at Spotlight, and I believe the pink ribbon used on the bodice was some stuff I nicked from Jodie’s stash (thanks Jodes!)

I love the puff sleeves, they are kinda like Snow White sleeves.  The silver stripes are just pieces of the skirt fabric.

  1. No worries. Did I tell that the ribbon was a roll that my mum bought to make hair ribbons for me when I was little – it’s 34 years old!
