I just finished Madison's dress!
Madison is another precious princess from China and her mommy orders a custom dress from me every year for Madison's birthday.
This year, Madison requested purple shiny fabric with Tinkerbell smocking with flowers.
I found a purple cotton sateen with a lovely hand, heavy enough for a winter dress.
Madison requested her name on her dress and for
some reason the shiny thread is reflecting the light.
I sewed on some sparkly lime green beads and lime green
rickrack to pick up the color in Tink's outfit.
I love the green rickrack on the collar.
Yes, the sash in the back is really that big.
I LOVE big sashes and this one tied so pretty.
Little, tiny cuff with green rickrack and lavender flower button.
We all know I can't take good pictures, so there is some weird shine on this one.
Normally, I sew the petticoat in to the dress, but this time, I made it separately just in case Madison was overcome with the need to twirl when she did not want to wear her dress.
So, there it is. Madison's Tinkerbell dress. I can't wait to see pictures of her wearing it.
It will be in a box, winging it's way to this "Fairy" princess on Friday!
Happy Birthday sweet girl!
