~princess dress~

My son was invited to a birthday party
Saturday and when I asked the girl's Mom
what she wanted for her birthday I got the reply:
"Anything princess and blue."

I have been wanting to make a princess dress for awhile now
and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start.

I didn't stop with the dress....
a girl's got to have some accessories you know!

The finished project.
I made it by sewing a tulle skirt onto a t-shirt.
I cut the sleeves and collar off and embellished
with tulle bows and gemstones.

In retrospect I wish I would have got a smaller
size t-shirt and a more fitted style.
It didn't have much shape to it so I
banded the skirt and bustled it in the front
in the hopes that it would give it a little shape.

I found this tutorial to make a birthday crown to go with the dress.
It was SOOOOO easy and cheap.

I also used this tutorial to make a fairy princess wand.
I thought it was the perfect finishing touch to the fairytale gift.

I'm already planning my next princess dress.....
I'm thinking pink this next time around :)
Total cost for this gift....under $20.
