Briar Rose

Do you know how exciting it was for me to make a Briar Rose dress instead of the typical Sleeping Beauty dress for Lucy???

The scenes with Briar Rose are some of my favorite movie scenes of all times. I love everything about them; the fairies sewing and cooking and fighting, the song in the forest, the

The dress isn't beautiful in the traditional sense, but I've always loved it.
I SO wish I had a small wicker basket and shawl for this photo shoot to complete the look.

You know how I talked Miss Sassy Pants into letting me make her this one instead of the pink one?

This amazing skirt.
Eight gores of slinky, twirly, soft, comfy knit.

Every girls dream... and she loves it.

It may be grey and dull in color, but it's full of sass and swing and it's comfy!

I almost made a traditional woven dress- with a real collar and cuffs and a zipper up the back... but dress up dresses should be comfy and easy to put on and non wrinkly.

This franken pattern combo of a Jalie pattern and the twirly dress was the perfect fit.

I changed the sweetheart to this angler top, raised the neckline, added the little collar and finished the edges with fold over elastic for the bodice and then just gathered the skirt and added it to the bottom. I finished the edges of the skirt with a rolled hem....

and I actually remembered to take a picture of the back.

I'm having so much fun making all these princess dresses!

That's very unique and different! Now you need a challenge in which to enter that one.

What a sweet dress! Is there anything better that twirling with a skirt floating around you?
