I supposed there is some sort of irony with that predicament given Cinderella was doomed to wear scullery maid attire until her fairy Godmother arrived on the scene.
Well for our Miss C (the C stands for Cinderella in this tale) her grandmother arrived on the scene with an Elsa knock-off Bubble Dress.
I used aqua satin for the bodice section of the dress.
For the skirt, I used the pattern pieces from the Fairy Tale dress making the hem calf length. The outer fabric is a lacy open weave (perfect for costumes) while the lining is broadcloth.
I had quite a bit of the lacy fabric leftover, so I made a cape.
When I went to trace out the pattern from my book Little This to Sew, I discovered Pattern Sheet#2 was missing. Unable to find it, I resorted to using a commercial pattern.
Too bad as I would have added it to Shelly's"go all the way with me" LLTS challenge.
My neighbour's studio gallery is built looking like a castle. Our Elsa wanted to have her photo taken in front of the castle so she could welcome everyone to her kingdom.
After our photo shoot that wasn't much fun due to the copious quantities of mosquitoes, the dress went back home with her and from what I've been told, is worn just about every day.
