I've been kept very busy with caring for the grand-kids while they are living with us. Carmen will turn three next week. She loves to dress up, so I made her this Belle dress for her during their nap times. It took way longer to make than when I have my time to myself, but I was able to finish it before the big day.

it's lovely and I think that an 'operation' may be needed to extract your Grand-daughter from it!!

This is just lovely and I really like the color satin. She'll feel just like a little princess wearing it. You've done a beautiful job stitching it. Worth all the time and effort.

Thank you. I love the shade also. It was just a bunch of costume satin(the really cheap one) I had in my stash. I tried to do lots of double stitching and serging so that it holds up.

It's a beautiful dress. My little granddaughter would die for something like this. It's much, much prettier than the ones from the stores.

super dress, she will be overthe moon, to pretty for nap time.

Thank you. Haha...I re-read my description. It does sound as if she can only wear it at nap time. What I meant to say, is that is was only able to sew during the grand-kids' nap time.
