And They Called Her "Zsa Zsa"

My sweet dear little Princess. She is growing to be quite the little lady, attitude and all. Princess' fashion sense is one (among many others) characteristic of hers that I absolutely adore.

She is quite the budding fashionista. Princess' ideas of what is pretty and what is cool are defiantly unique and she owns them well. (Loves Taylor Swift, Loathes Justin Beiber) Give her anything green, sparkly, or "rock star" and she's pretty much good to go. But there are the still few occasions where I get to dress her like my little girl and she loves it.

I've been making her Halloween costumes since she was born. She loves the special attention she gets and I love to dress my baby girl.

This is the first "fancy" dress I made - she wanted to be (what else) a princess. This dress was made for Halloween when she was 3 years old - I couldn't was too lazy to find a pic from that night so this is more recently when she wore it at school for a vocabulary parade. Thank goodness I made the thing HUGE when she was little and has had many uses out of it.

Vocabulary Word Parade: Elegant - Pretty.
The princess looked elegant.

Then there are the WEDDINGS - this lovely little lady makes one gorgeous flower girl! But oh my are those dresses expensive!

My solution has been to make her dresses. This way the bride can get custom look for her wedding and I don't have to go broke buying a dress she'll only wear for one day. (Although, her dresses have found their way into the dress-up bin. )

M & M Wedding - August 2008

J & R Wedding - May 2009

This year Miss Princess is getting a brand new Easter dress. This is just a little something to whet the appetite. Can't wait till it's finished!

Let you know total cost when I am done. ;)


  1. Wow! Can't believe you made that! She is so pretty - the photos from the wedding are amazing!

  2. She is a sweet Princess! Love the dresses you've made and can't wait to see the finish on the one you're working on. I bet your daughter will love it!

  3. I love to make Halloween costumes for my kiddos, too. I don't sew (except for buttons), so mine always involve a lot of glue-gunning. =>

  4. There's nothing like a pretty dress to make us feel like just like a princess.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a 'footprint' in the comment box for the chocolaty giveaway!

    Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places.........

  5. She's a cutie patootie! I love watching my girls dress up. It is one of there most favorite activities.
