Today I finished the Cinderella Costume for Amelie for Christmas!
An in process shot of the white bustle - I gathered the length and hand stitched it at the waistline (centre back)
The front view where I used the same technique to gather and hand-stitch to the centre front waistline.
I love the way the fabric works on the sleeves. It is stiff enough to keep the nice puffy shape!
Fit for a princess!
and now the model princess...
She was not impressed when she realised the deal she struck to have a turn in the dress was in exchange for a photo session...she was under the impression that she was going for a swing around the clothesline!
But check out this awesome attempt a smile below...there's my girl!
She later requested a photo of her and Clementine together...sweet!
Another Christmas dress down and hidden away....only Jem to go...although I am tempted to make a couple more for Clementine to even things out!
