So I've been sewing and beading like a mad fiend. The good news is the Cinderella dresses are both done. Unfortunately, I had to make them both withouut a pattern, so they're not perfect. Here's hoping my niece doesn't notice. I also didn't iron them as I'm morally opposed to the iron. I'm positive she won't notice that - she's four and wanders around in a state of rumpled grubbiness most of the time.
Here are the pictures of the finished dresses - please excuse the crummy camera phone pictures and the fact that my house looks like it's in danger of being shut down by the health department. I'd like to tell you that it's usually much neater...but I'd be lying.
Now I've just got to make the five pairs of jammy pants, three special surprises, two star babies, one slipper and a bracelet. I've really got to start earlier next year...
