Surprisingly, even with all of the fabric, this dress is so comfy and flexible – the shirring lets little Hannah dance and play just like a princess should.
Both the Cinderella and Belle dresses begin with the same shirred bodice – so, you’ll notice that the photos in the first few sections are shown using the Cinderella dress. Just use the fabric in the color you need for your dress!
Take one side – doesn’t matter which, and lay out your lining fabric right side up. Place your middle bodice section along the front edge (the diagonal side) right side up, lining up the edges.
You did it! Bodice, done. Now – on to the sleeves and skirt.
