It’s not perfect, but I made it and she {hearts} it!

OMGoodnes! I don’t think the little sister has ever been more excited in her life! And I owe it all to Ashley over at Make it and Love it!
Ashley, you don’t know me, but you are my new BFF! (and my daughter’s too!) Your blog is AHHHHHmazing, and I have only begun to skim the surface!
Honestly I’m just a wannabe sewer. I long for the day that I can sew like a pro. All you seasoned sewers will most defiantly be able to tell this when you look at my pictures, but this just goes to show you how fabulous Ashley’s Cinderella dress tutorial really is! It is because of said tutorial that I, the wannabe sewer was able to make my little girls dream of looking just like Cinderella come true!!
*Warning* the following pictures were taken  indoors at night. Sorry for the poor quality!
She is beyond thrilled to be able to be just like her favorite princess while eating breakfast in her castle!
She is still patiently waiting for the matching accessories. For now all she got was a make shift headband. But hey, it kept her happy!
And don’t forget the signature Cinderella hair. I have to perfect this but there may be a tutorial in the works.
Please seasoned sewers try not to cringe at my neckline. I decided to do this part last for some reason, but it was late, and I was tired, and remember I’m just a wannabe sewer!
After she was “good” and stayed still long enough for me to snap some pictures,  she went wild and never stopped twirling!
Upon conclusion the little sister has decided she must be Cinderella for Halloween this year. That’s my girl, always thinking ahead!
I followed Ashley’s tutorial almost to a “T”. The only thing I did differently was to x-nay the velcro closure in the back, and hem the bottom skirt before attaching it to the dress. Not for any reason in particular just that I was having a heck of a time with those to steps!
Remember I mentioned the big sisters dress in another post? It is done but for now all you get is the sneak peek again until she wakes up in the morning to try it on!
Can you guess her favorite princess yet?

This is actually the 2nd Cinderella dress attempt. I can’t tell you where I went wrong with the first one. The only thing I can tell you is that I was sick, I was tired, and when I started it was late. However, I was so excited after I returned home from the fabric store that I couldn’t wait. Bad idea!



Linking up to these great parties!

That is sooo cute!, thanks for the post. Is there any way you could make a post of you doing her hair though? I am unable to get my daughters hair right at all and when I saw your sisters hair, my jaw dropped. The dress and the hair are perfect!
