I got this fabric at Joann's for $1.99 for one yard. I didn't know what I was gonna do with it til princess saw it and called it a "cinderelly dress".  I used a dress from her closet for a rough pattern and got to work.
This is the worst fabric EVER Cry Even with the thinest needle and thinb rayon thread it shredded on every stich setting and tension adjustment. But I sucked it up and finished in about three hours.
I had enough fabric to make a skirt for my roomate's daughter.




      I made it into a bubble skirt using a polyester tank i had lying around cuz even on the best of days I hate hemming.

I love the print on that fabric, and your daughters dress looks great! Nice that you got a 2nd piece (the skirt) out of the same $2 of fabric. Too cool Cheesy
