Because I now have too much time on my hands (errr... not true most of the time actually) and because Andrea kept asking me for a "Cinderella" dress since she outgrew her store-bought Snow White costume.
For reference, this is how Cinderella's dress looks like:
And here is my version of it.
The puffed sleeves did not puff *sigh*.
I made it from an old bridesmaid dress.
That was the dress... just imagine it plain, with a fuschia corset (don't ask), and an A-line skirt. The skirt was more than enough for the dress, but it was the first time I worked with chiffon and wow, that was hard! It kept slipping, and fraying... and I it was beyond my powers to hem. The chiffon on the sides is actually not hemmed and is beginning to fray... I wonder if I can just singe the edges? Will probably try that tonight.
