Fairy princess dresses

Remember the pretty slips found last month?

With a few accessories they've been upcycled/repurposed into fairy princess dresses.

With bits of tulle, sheers, ribbon, fabric flowers and vintage clip-on earrings...

...I created a headband and removable brooch for each dress.

I think they turned out cute.

I need to "borrow" some girls to try them on for sizing purposes.

And I might try to make some removable wings for each one with the leftover sheer fabrics.

I'll put them on Collage after that.

Last week, I found two more slips to upcycle, one red and one tan, if these do well.

Hi, I came by from the feathered nest. I dont have kids, but just wanted to say these look so much more like fairy dresses than those barbie pink mass produced things I see in the shops.
