fit for a princess

.
hadley has no shortage of dresses - but when she was invited to a princess-themed birthday party, i noticed that she didn't have a "princess" dress!


we headed out to rokko saree where she picked out her own fabric.  palest pink organza embellished with sequins + opalescent beads.  lining of china silk + ten yards of fluffy pink tulle.


i followed a 1965 ballerina costume pattern with a few alterations.  the back of the dress was finished with an invisible zipper + vintage glass button.  


hadley wore her new dress to the birthday party today [where the girls were entertained by sleeping beauty!] + she looked lovely.  xo

This is so adorable! Do you happen to know what the fabric with the pink trim is called? Or where I could get some? I have literally been looking all over for it and I found myself on this blog. Which is really cute :) thank you for any help!
