I have always wanted to make a Belle dress and I couldn't find a better reason to make one. My friend's kid was turning two and what 2 year old wouldn't want a Belle dress? I made the dress from scratch making the pattern up as I went (using a tank top as a guide, as i didnt have measurements), I added a shirred back to allow the dress to grow with her for a bit.
The dress is fully lined with elastic ruching on the overlay of the skirt and overlay of the top. I made the flower from scraps, which took the most time. It is fully lined.

The Little princess absolutely loved the dress as did most the adults.
