Very "rough" rough draft sketch
I knew I wanted classic colors while playing around with the design elements. I wanted an outfit a little girl could run around in and not worry about messing it up too much. This is playtime and dress-up time! So I added shorts underneath a peeking cascade skirt. I also knew I wanted something more "airy" up top, so I designed the dress with long shoulder sashes and attached ruffles to them that mimic sleeves.
I absolutely love the way the colors pop against each other, especially the red and blue ruffle on the shoulder straps! (I am a little peeved that people have decided to copy that idea, but that's for another blog post!) The yellow skirt with its gathered ruffle and the sweet little red buttons on the sides are such classic details that really capture Snow White! My sweet niece looked so cute in in, and it is such a wearable, easy outfit with loads of style!
Look at that excited face so early in the morning!

This is no spell-induced sleep, poor thing was worn out!
