Show and Tell: Water Princess Dress

As I shared last week T is insanely obsessed with being a Waterbender. She also has outgrown all her princess dresses and as you probably know, no girl should be without a princess dress. So I thought it would be fun to make her a dress with water on it. I think it turned out really fun.

I sewed 1/8 inch strips of elastic into the back since I wanted the dress to last a while. Plus I hate spending the money on zippers.

For the waves I just made some iron on fabric and put it on before I sewed up the skirt. And then I top stitched it.

I really love how the sleeves turned out. I think they are my favorite part. Any ways I just wanted to share this little creation with you guys.
