My DIL bought Abby a princess dress for her birthday, but the princess wasn't happy with it as it scratched her delicate skin. So, I thought maybe I could make her a dress that didn't scratch. I looked at a bunch of patterns, but they were pretty complicated. I thought maybe if she had a decorated T-shirt and it was tucked in the skirt, the shirt would protect the delicate skin from any scratchiness. So to JoAnn's I went. While there I purchased 2 yards of some wide sheer glistening stuff. I also saw some stretchy soft fabric that I thought might be a good top - that I could make plenty long enough so it wouldn't come out of the skirt.

And, why make one when you can make two while you are at it? So, I'm making 2 skirts so that if a friend comes over, she can at least have a princess skirt to wear. The tucks in the skirt can be let down if the princess grows a lot.
BTW, two of my blogging friends that wanted to be able to see my "secret" blog don't have an email on their blog that I can access, so if you want to be in on secret blog, I will need your email address.
