I'm a Princess!

My son Maben is so sweet, during the creation of this dress, I tried it on and he gasped.  He looked at me and said, "Mommy, you're a princess!"  I melted.  He then asked me where my castle was and I told him our house was our castle...he disagrees.

This is only the second dress I have ever sewn...so be nice.  I took a jersey tank top that was not long enough for my super long torso, cut off part of it and sewed the skirt (which I did all the construction on) to it.  I added a zipper in the back.  I sewed in a piece of elastic around the waist, to reduce the amount of weight on the jersey so it wouldn't stretch out too badly.  I love the fabric and fairly satisfied with the finished product.  What do you think?

The fabric is Kaffe Fassett Lake Blossoms Red.  I purchased mine from fabric.com and have wanted to make a dress or skirt with it ever since I first laid eyes on it.  (Not an affiliate link, just where I bought mine)

  1. I love that Maben called you a princess! How adorable is he?

    Great job on the dress!



  2. That looks great! I love that its home made too. That always ends up better. AND it looks like a perfect spring/summer outfit :)

  3. You did great! It's so cute and fits well. Good job Princess!
