Lily's special birthday twirly pirate dress

Postby queen bee » Mon Oct 22, 2012 3:47 pm

Lily asked me to make her a special "turny turny" (twirly :giggle: ) dress for her birthday party. She said she wanted a pirate dress. I wanted it to be pirate-y and girly at the same time. I found the perfect fabric by Riley Blake.

I followed this tutorial http://fromanigloo.blogspot.co.uk/2010/ ... dress.html It was really quite easy and I did smocking/shirring for the first time. It was magic!!!
