A Lacey Fairy Princess Dress

Welcome to another post from Kristin of skirt as top!

Sometimes timing just works out perfectly.  My daughter was invited to be the flower girl in a family wedding early next month (which she loves doing), and the bride asked me to make her flower girl dress (which I love doing).  Lucky for me, the upcoming Britex sale category of poly/rayon/lace gave me plenty of wonderful options to choose from!
