My little niece Sophiia is turning five this year and starting school (WHAT?) for her birthday I decided I'd make her a princess dress, as I'm pretty sure she thinks she is a princess.
When Rich and I were at home at Christmas last year, she told me all about a Disney Princess called "Sophia the First" who she obviously loves (she received a Sophia the First art set for Christmas).
When I saw a couple of metres of Sophia the First fabric going cheaply on a facebook fabric destash group I'm part of I thought I better snap it up for Sophiia. I guess Sophia the first isn't as popular as the likes of the "Frozen" crowd. Although I'm not sure, I've never seen Frozen, in fact I don't think I've really seen a Disney movie since "The Lion King".
When I told my brother I had this fabric he assured me that Sophiia would "go insane" if I made her a dress from it, so that kind of sealed the deal.
However, when I was checking out the craft books at Whitcoulls I found this very sweet book - "Girls World" it has some cute dresses for girls as well as some craft projects and things like quilts and cushions. Also it was on special so cost less than a new princess dress pattern would have so I decided to snap it up.
Kuromi as a model anymore. I'm not really sure a coat hanger shows the dress off very well though.
Finally, the dress with a sash - because Princess dresses are ALL about big bows, you HAVE to have a bow!
Hope you've all had a good weekend - I've been to Porirua today to buy some trims and other exciting bits for a Kawaii costume I'm working on for an event in September!
