I’ve made another princess gown for little e. My mom agrees that she looks like a little Korean princess with the empire waist and pouf-y bottom. I switched it up a bit and added some 3/4 sleeves, which ended up more like 1/2 sleeves.
I love the look actually and every night when I see little e floating around in it, it makes me happy. She likes the floor length as well and is happily modeling it. I like this length of sleeve better than the short sleeve version, probably because I like 3/4 sleeves in general. The double gauze is super soft and comfortable.
E still dislikes it. He doesn’t get it, I guess. When I was in third grade, my friend had a god mother who made her all these fancy ball gowns. We used to play dress up in them and I’d wish that I had my own. This princess dress makes little e feel like a princess because it’s floor length and poufy, but is also suited to my grown up taste because it’s so soft and not tacky, like most costume princess dresses are, in my opinion. I know many little girls would love princess dresses because I did.
After binge watching Shark Tank the last few weeks, I’m almost tempted to figure out how to manufacture this and see if it sells.
