Last week I showed you my contemporary summer-drenched Tadah! Tea Party dress but for my second one I wanted to go with a more classic romantic feel. I love this fabric. It’s simple and soft and innocent, like my Bug.
And she loves it too….
It’s no secret she felt like a fairy princess.
And I think I said last time, it really is a pretty easy sew (much better than the thousand pieces I’m cutting and sewing for some latest baby troop shirts, stay tuned!)
Lined bodice, and this time the full circle skirt… which only means one thing….
So yep, it’s a winner in Buggy’s book. For this version you can see above I added small pom-pom trim which can be a bugger to sew on but amazingly forgiving by hiding your stitch line, which is lucky as it was pretty wonky! Another win!
This time I used the princess neckline and the scoop back which I think is so flattering!
Oh, and not to forget the cap sleeves which poke out more than other cap sleeves I’ve sewn but is perfect for your princessy girl.
The year is rapidly running away from me and before I know it it will be birthday party season for our family before Xmas descends. I’m hoping we might use this dress as a ‘farm party’ outfit. Haven’t put my marketing proposal to Bug yet for the party theme. Making sure I’ve got all my materials together to win her over with my pitch. Ssshhh, don’t spoil it!
Ok, let’s talk about that hair. I’m impressed, are you? The internet is a beautiful thing. Why was it not around when I was young with long locks? I’m making up for it now practicing on both our heads. Whilst I have done this style on myself, it is far easier to do on another person! You can find the tute here.
And finally, all that twirling is pretty tiring! Thanks Bugs for your photo shoot commitment.
