Princess Dress

I've been working on submissions for a magazine the last week or so, so I can't show any pictures of recent knitting.

However, someone has been asking for a princess dress since seeing some in the shops last week. And I did promise her that I would make her one.

She also demanded a fairy wand.

And of course some twirling!


I just made up the pattern. The bodice is just a long rectangle with elastic sewn to the top and bottom to keep it on her, but make it easy to get on and off. Some gathered netting was sewn to the bottom of the bodice and ribbons to the top for shoulder ties. And a big flower sewn to the front.
The wand is just made out of felt. The handle of the wand has two drinking straws in it to give it some rigidity.
Very simple and quick!
