Giselle dress for Boo's

I keep forgetting to post this...
rather... Ella keeps wearing it and it ends up in the wash before I can get a picture!
I should have ironed the hem before I took these pictures, but.... oh well.



I made this for Boo's birthday back in August. She loves it, wears it all the time.






I wanted to make it as close to this dress as possible, which made it VERY difficult to find a pattern. I ended up using a couple different ones put together.



The fabrics came from Hobby Lobby, as did the flowers. I hand sewed them on with little beads and did that with the bows, too, which is Lucy's favorite part of the costume.



more sewing today on my regular sewing machine... since my embroidery hoop broke... :(
Thank heavens for my Mom, who got me a new one! Now I just have to wait for it to come.
