Aw, now doesn't that make it all worthwhile? Janice the Manice sent pictures of Princess Petunia trying on her pettiskirt with her pajamas after bath time. My sister also sent me a video of the Princess trying to cast a spell on mommy, beating her with the pretty magic wand. Don't mess with the Tooth Fairy!As you can see, my efforts hand-stitching the little ribbon flowers were pretty much a waste -- once the kid started twirling, the chiffon layers shifted and the ribbon flowers got lost in the mass of chiffon. So next time I'd either have to sew on a LOT more flowers to make sure they are visible, or else move them up higher , maybe to the bottom of the satin waistband tier.
The waistband is a bit too big, too, so Janice cinched it with a hair clip. If I was there in person, I could open up the waistband through that little elastic cave door and adjust it for her. It would have been better to test fit the elastic to the princess before completing that step.
ADDED October 17, 2011: I can't believe I never posted a picture of Princess Petunia wearing this pettiskirt for trick-or-treating last year! I think she was the Tooth Fairy:
