The Fairy Frock

Miss L turns 2 next week and her mum asked for a Fairy Frock. I don't like my Fairy Frocks in pastel colours - they need to be bold and outrageously pink (to make all the other little girls jealous!)

I made this over the weekend

The top is shirred.  The skirt tulle layers were gathered and sewn to the bodice with shirring elastic in the bobbin and matching thread in the needle

The little flower of the front was made by sticking two layers of fabric together with vliesofix and cutting the flower shape out using an Accuquilt applique die. It was very quick... and covered the less-than-perfect bit of shirring!

No doubt, Miss L will be the belle of the ball - or whatever is the equivalent in the playground
