Hi and welcome to my blog! I’m so excited to be sharing my first post with you. This is a limited size 8 child size dress inspired by Beauty and the Beast (2017). It was the one worn by Emma Watson at the end of the movie. I’ve been obsessed with the flowers around the dress ever since I saw her wear it, so I decided to make one. I found a similar print and started by drafting a simple bodice and A line skirt (I really wanted to make it a full skirt).
The print fabric is a polyester chiffon and because the fabric is so delicate and see through I decided to underline it with white satin. The sleeves are see through with a half bell bottom.
The skirt has an underlayer of white satin with an attached slip with two rows of stiff tulle, which is what gives it that extra poof. It has a hook and eye and zip closure. The dress is fully lined using fell stitches. The flowers are handmade from pink organza and red chiffon with pink beads in the center.
I love the final product. The dress is simple, elegant, but a head turner with those flowers!
There is only one dress up for sale so if you would like more information, email me! Thank you for reading and I look forward to sharing many more designs with you.
