I had a lot of fun with this challenge!
Here is a photo closeup of the final result Smiley



I used fitted crib sheets and mismatched pillowcases from my kiddo and i saw it as only fitting to allow her to decide what i was to make...thus the fairy princess inspiration!
Here is a pile of the cotton and jersey fitted sheets and cases...


I found it handy that if you trim away at about two inches or so from the elastic borders it created a handy dandy ready to use ruffle!


I did not use a pattern, just my dress form, scissors, and piecing and lots of stitching. the top and skirt are seperates and the skirt will be worn a lot as it even goes well with a fitted tshirt! (the skirt is my favorite piece)


So anyway, here is my kiddo fairy inspired wearable art....ready to frolic and have picnics!
Thanks for checking it out!

Oh, and sorry for the photo quality...i had lighting issues and tried correcting them, alas i am not a photo shop pro! lol

Pretty! I'd love to see a picture of the skirt with a tshirt, I can't really tell when one ends and the other starts! xD But the whole thing looks really awesome, it reminds me of a piece I saw in an art gallery last spring! Cheesy
