Pretty, Pretty, Princess Dress and Crown
Here is my beautiful birthday princess! I made this princess play dress and crown for her, and she has worn it everyday since, which makes me feel good. I was given this blue fabric, which had previously been used as a table decoration at a baby shower. The skirt part of the dress is just a huge rectangle gathered at the top. I wanted it to twirl around her when she spun in circles! For the bodice, I followed a pattern that I had on hand. And the back closes with two pink buttons. The only thing I had to buy was the pink ribbon to tie around the middle: total cost was $2! And the nice thing about making a play dress is that it doesn't matter if you make a mistake and don't have everything perfect!
She also received a baby princess doll, that just happened to have a blue dress on it, with a pink bow! Thanks Melissa, she loves it!!!
Every princess needs a crown! I really just made this up as I went! I actually stuffed the crown with yarn because I didn't have any stuffing, and it had to get done before her birthday! The back of the crown is just a long tube with elastic in it, so it will fit her for a long time. I happened to have some jewels that I could hot glue on to make it sparkly!
Happy Birthday Rebekah!
