I found this adorable tutorial on-line for a fairy dress-up outfit. I know of two little girls who happen to love dress-up (aka Emma and Ellie, my nieces). I decided to make one for each of them for Christmas this year. Being the stay-at-home mom that I am, I already have one finished, and now it is going to be so hard to wait until Christmas to give them away! In case you're interested, you can find the original by going here: weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/2008/07/slapdash.html (sorry, I'm not sure how to make it a link).
This is a picture of Chess and me working on the project.

It is very pink, but hey, little girls love pink, right? Also, I made several mistakes that made me mad, but I don't think the wearers will notice!
