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.

I love all the details Marissa….the sleeves, the detail on the back, and the pretty waves all add great interest to what would otherwise be a plain dress. Thanks for sharing on Your Cozy Home Party so other seamstresses can learn from your ideas.
