This dress is basically the top bodice of the Neutral Dusk Short Sleeve Peplum Dress from the Midnight Moon AW13 Collection and the skirt and back lacing of the Frog Princess Green and Yellow Dress from the Fairytale Collection. I think the different elements came together beautifully in the pale blues and whites I found in super soft cottons.
A little bling was requested to bring in some princess glam to the dress, and luckily I found a white fabric with silver glitter sparkles in a fun wispy filigree pattern that reminded me of magic trailing out of a wand. I used this for the ruffle on the bib, the bottom skirt, and the sash that laces down the back bodice to tie into a dramatic bow at the waist. I found two pale blues that complimented each other and had an angelic, fairytale quality to them that really worked well with the white. The skirt almost begins with the darkest shade and fades into the white like a soft cloud.
I think this dress is beautiful with all the right elements sewn together, and I hope the Little Princess has the best time wearing it! She will be going on a family vacation soon, and I'm sure she's going to have a perfectly magical time dressing up and bringing out her inner princess!
