Bella Blvd CHA Fabric Project! Witch Dress and Hat!

I have one more project for you that I created for Bella Blvd's CHA Trade Show booth.
Bella Blvd asked me to create some fabric projects using their newest fabric collection- Too Cute To Spook.

I sent them some other items, too, but this was my favorite fabric project!

Isn't she the cutest?  I mean, really!
I wanted to make my daughter a witch dress she could wear for our annual "Witches Nite Out" event we do here in Salt Lake City, Utah.  It's tradition for hundreds of women to dress up and attend this two night event, eat treats, dance and shop.  Up to this point, it's just been my mom, aunts, sister, and friends, but this year I've got to bring the newest, cutest witch- my daughter :)

The dresses at Witches Nite Out are elaborate, with bussles and trains and trim and lights and yards and yards of fabric.  This dress is not quite as elaborate, and I actually used parts of a princess dress pattern for parts of it.  I made it long enough to touch the ground, and then I added sleeves, extra bussels, and lots and lots of extra fabric, trim and lots of tulle underneath. 

The hats are what are really over-the-top.  This one is less elaborate but perfect for a first-time little girl's hat.  To make the rose I used my ruffler foot (or you could just gather a long strip of fabric) and rolled it into a rose shape and tucked the edges under.  The feathers and embellishments were hot glued rather than sewn onto the hat.
