Snow White

This also had velvet on it, harder to sew than satin but nothing like the stretch velvet. 
I love how it looks all decked out in the rich colors.

Sleeping Beauty

This project will most likely never be repeated. I used stretch velvet for the bodice and over peplum and that made it much harder! The result is beautiful so I can't complain too much.

Princess Beauty

I did a side zipper and only lace ups in the back of this dress. 
Makes adjusting and dressing yourself much easier.

Baby Princesses!

These started as a baby shower gift for a friend and they are quickly becoming the prototypes for a possible new line for my "shop". They were fun to make and certainly have me thinking about adding another line to my collection! 

Snow White Swing Top Set

Cinderella Sunday Dress

Sleeping Beauty Peasant Blouse Set

Princess Beauty Sundress Set

Mermaid Seashore Set

I'm going to have to look into the rules of selling children's clothes, there are quite a few, and see if it is a real possibility.

Sweet Wrap Skirt

 Sweet Wrap Skirt by LippyAnne Designs

My girls are very excited I've been given the opportunity to do more pattern testing, they benefit big time! This quick and easy to put together, I did have to make the elastic in the back much smaller than she suggested because my 9 year old (in 10 days!) is super skinny. Otherwise it was perfect in length and style. For my less girly girl this was perfect and she happily wore it. She also pelted me with questions about being a model and if I thought it was a possibility for a future career. I told her to keep up the good work!

Purple Princess

I finally received a request for this beautiful Purple Princess dress!
It took 650 pearl beads and at the request of the customer I didn't even put them on the center panel or the over skirt, where they can be included as well.
The customer sent the fabric so in the future colors will vary slightly. 
The color I have access to will only be slightly different.

Two bodysuits to go under fin Mermaid and Arabian Princess costumes
A Cinderella top.

Next is the new purple princess dress, I'm going to get it started ASAP so I can get it just right amongst the craziness of school starting up again!

The Pooka Bean Dress and Hat

Jack-Jack was convinced it was a dancing dress, she twirled and twirled!

She was NOT a fan of the hat, there were lots of tears, and sad faces.

A Little different Mermaid

I was asked to make a few small changes to my usual Mermaid dress for this customer. I added plain blue after the trim as a nice clean edge. I also painted the skirt inset and sleeve appliques (very hard to see in the pictures) like I do my Fin, it turned out really well and I'd like to give it a try again in the future.

BeBop Top

Jr. was the lucky recipient of this pattern test

She dubbed this top Diamond falls on Midnight

  I also made her a "winter" version out of houndstooth cotton with 3/4 length sleeves. She can't wait until it gets cold enough to wear it!

Native American Princess

This is a dress I've been planning for quite some time. 
I finally got to try my hand at it last week!

I really like how it turned out.
Things I learned from this project are - white fringe is WAY harder to find than I ever imagined and go with the hard way to do something first. I had to dismantle the entire collar peice and rework it because it looked awful the "easy" way!

Marian the Librarian

Some of the many costumes I made, Marian's entire wardrobe was made by me, I did the majority of other characters but not everything they wore.
