My daughter has been promised a Cinderella dress for her 3rd birthday.  I thought it wise to make a prototype before cutting into my good fabric.  The sleeves and skirt will be much fuller, but it was the bodice I needed to get right anyway.



It turned out super cute!  If only it weren't so wide across the chest and back....  BUT, that's why I made a prototype!

That's adorable!  I'm sure she's thrilled with!  You could just add a little shirring to the back to bring it in a little.  Smiley

Dress looks awsome!  I love the look of death she's giving you for taking the picture.   Grin

That's definitely a "I've done five princess bows already. Aren't you done taking pictures yet?" look.

That's a good idea! Not sure if it's do-able though since it buttons up the center of the back....  I might have to experiment a bit...  Maybe some shirring on the sides, under the arms.  Hmmm...
