Here’s Sophia’s five minute princess dress. First, you have to find “princess” dress material at the store – it helps when that smocked (and already hemmed!) disney fabric goes on sale for 70%…I bought one yard and washed it (it does shrink a bit).
Then simply drape the fabric around the body of the princess-in-waiting and pin it. Feel free to make it more snug if you don’t want to use straps. Mark where two straps will go on the front & back. I sewed up the back and attached two pieces of ribbon for straps. Nothing simpler, especially when the princess-in-waiting refuses to leave the house for a play date until her princess gown is finished. And then she’s ready, completely with princess shoes that match her gown.
