So, here I am, in the middle of three projects... and I'm starting another one!
Well, I wasn't intentionally looking for a new project.
I was at Wal*Mart a few days after Christmas, and like, EVERYTHING was on sale. Including these beautiful jaquard tablecloths!!!!!!!
Origanally $9 ea., they were marked down to $4.50 each!
I promptly bought two for the main fabric for this dress from PotC:
Elizabeth's Gold gown from Pirates of the Carribean
I don't know if I'll go into too much detail (the elaborate stomacher, etc.) I'll make the neckline higher, but it'll be similar to Simplicity 4092:
The jacquard should have been $10 a yard for this project. ($50 total). I got the whole kit and caboodle for about $10 total!!!!
Of course, I still need to buy the contrast fabric, lining, zipper, etc........... but that was a really good buy!!!!

Overall, this was a very fun project. The only thing I feel bummed about is that there are puckers down the front of the dress where I put the satin ribbon on for a faux split skirt. But that's ok. She doesn't mind, fortunately. *phew!*
I totally love the Fairytale Princess style of dress...
