I made this dress for Elisa this past summer, entirely out of scrap/leftover fabric and used no pattern. I am happy with the way it turned out. I'm even happier that it got to be worn at DisneyWorld, which I did not have in mind while making this dress! I love the princess-look the bodice has, but the inside is kind of a mess since I was just winging it as I went along, but no matter.
As you can see, it all worked out perfectly; she was a big hit in her Minnie Mouse outfit.
