The patterns for these dresses were pretty simple but the construction of them turned out to be anything but easy. Just a simple dress with puffed sleeves and a gathered skirt with a tulle overlay, no problem, wrong! To start with the bodice is made out of silk so that right off the bat was a bit nerve wracking to work with. It turned out to be a pretty easy fabric to cut and sew but I didn't want to make a single mistake as it's not a cheap fabric. The most difficult part by far was working with the tulle. Tulle is nice because you don't have to hem it or worry about it fraying, however it is not fun to cut, pin or sew. It doesn't line up very easy at all and you have to fight it every step of the way. The pinning and gathering the tulle skirts turned out to be the most time consuming and stressful part of the whole project.
It was worth it though! Just look at these dresses they turned out just beautiful! I added some sparkles to the tulle to add that extra little touch.
I think they really are perfectly uber girly Ballerina Princess Dresses!
