This is a dress my daughter has wanted me to make for her since she was probably 4.
The Flower Fairy Dress!
This picture, drawn by my daughter, was the vision.
Step 1: Cut Petals!
I was given about 10 yards of this glorious white shiny material. Maybe some kind of satin/nylon...?
Anyway, it was free and therefore totally in my price range!
I cut out petals in 2 different sizes. One just slightly smaller than the other.
(You could do whatever size petal you want...but the smaller the petal, the more time sewing them on later...you decide!)
