So we are going on our first family vacation in 10 days to Disney World and a Disney cruise. While at Disney world we will be having lunch with the princess'. I wanted to get my daughter a nice dress for the lunch, but the Disney ones weren't what I was looking for. So I decided to make this for her. I designed the pattern myself and referenced a few pictures online.

I made the hat, did all the embroidery and added some glass beads. It was quite hard to make and I had to do a lot of touch ups as well as asking for some help along the way.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417675.0
But I'm very happy with how it turned out. This was my first time creating a pattern from scratch. I also learned a lot from it. As you all know it gets very hard to teach yourself some of this stuff when the supplies are so expensive. I didn't realize how heavy the fabric would get, which made it hard to be as poofy as I wanted.
I did the roses on my embroidery machine, they are from http://www.designsbyrothney.com/. She does really nice organza flowers that I love to add to everything.

Thanks so much for the great comments. It was quite stressful when things weren't quite looking right and you don't know why. I am very glad it came together in the end. There was a few times I just wanted to scrap it and run to the Disney store.

So much prettier and better made than any of the official Disney stuff.  Love the white and gold combination. I hope you get some pictures of her dining with the princess too.  Looks like she is pretty happy with her new dress.

You are an awesome mom. Not only does she get to meet the princesses, she gets to be her own princess for the day! It looks so well done, too.

Here's a picture of her with the princess', Thanks for all the awesome feedback.
She got a lot of attention and it was fun for her to be her own princess.

Wow! Awesome dress, and definitely way more interesting than some of the Disney Princess dresses I've seen.
