I feel a bit like Cinderella at the Princes ball when I’m wearing this. It is made in thai silk that my father bought for me a few years ago, the colour wasn’t great so I over-dyed the fabric before I started cutting. This dress calls for a festive occasion, so it will probably be a visit to the Concert Hall soon. The pattern is my basic bodice with a width long gathered skirt and button up back.
I need a petticoat for this but I didn’t think of it before I saw these pictures.
My sisters 5 year birthday it coming up soon and I she has requested a crotched crown in shiny sparkly golden yarn. I thought the a knight costume would be perfect, she already have a few princess dresses. I made a crown in shiny golden jersey and a mantle in shiny emerald velour and bough a wooden sword.
I made a mantle pattern after one of her t-shirts, used the same shoulder slope and just continued downward.
To make it sturdier a inserted a thick steel treed in the points of the crown.
I used a wide zigzag on one side and hooks on the other side to fasten it .
