Wow, I was so excited to make this pattern. It’s a beautiful princess dress, inspired by Belle from Beauty and the Beast. It can be used as fancy dress for that special party, or as a flower girl pattern too. Don’t be intimidated if you don’t have much experience – although it looks professional, it is easier to do than you might expect.
"This was such a wonderful pattern! It was well worth the price and has been so easy to follow along with! I am extremely satisfied and will definitely be buying more from here!" - Brandy
"The pattern is designed perfectly for all sewing levels. I have purchased three other princess patterns in the past and this pattern tops all of it. Not only is the dress beautiful, it is also very easy to sew. You can't go wrong sewing this dress. The pattern comes with written instructions and colored pictures. The best part is the video on YouTube. I was watching the video as I was sewing the dress; felt like I was in a sewing class. Made my daughter an everyday Belle dress and she loved it. Another pattern to purchase is the Vivienne dress. I am very happy with this pattern." - Caroline
"This is a fantastic dress pattern! The videos make it so easy to follow and the directions are well explained. I easily modified it into a Cinderella dress so it works great as a base for any princess dress!" - Cherise
