|Sorry, princess is in other castle. (No, not my dress. This is Chinese Cheap )|
The awesome news: My first Spring Dress is almost done. I just have to add the scallop lace to the hem and the sleeves. I was hoping to have it done in time for dinner with my husband's boss Saturday night (eight of us total. four adults, four kids). I decided I wanted sleep instead and that turned out to be a good idea. My daughter insisted on wearing her Easter dress and stole the whole show. Except all the prom goers. I swear there was an entire bus load of teenage girls in polyester ballgowns. In fact, I saw a girl in THIS EXACT DRESS. Now all the "Disney Princess" dresses I was seeing all over Pinterest finally make sense. There was entire gaggle of them standing outside our table's window smoking cigarettes they are probably too young to buy. Smoking Disney Princesses. Awesome.
And the thing the thing I just couldn't get over was how cheap the dresses looked. I mean, yes, they were all shiny and fluffy but the material and the embellishments screamed Chinese Sweat Shop Cheap. One girl kept pulling her strapless front up repeatedly. I'm probably going to make my daughter's prom dress if she doesn't herself. Not only that, she's gonna be a self rescuing princess. She's gonna be a black belt before she's 10, ya know?
|Needs sleeves and scallop lace.|
Then its on to cutting out the gingham for the Maxi Sleeveless Version.
