Teenie as "Princess Tiana" Halloween Costume

Of all the things I have made for Teenie, this is one of my favorites.  I did not use a pattern, just a picture of the dress I found on the interwebs. I used yellow satin, green satin, tulle, and muslin for the underskirt, (because Teenie thought it was too itchy.) I made the crown with fabric scraps and a headband.
There's her frog in her bucket! She got tired of carrying him.
The back I used elastic to make it easy to take off and on, and then used sheer ribbon for the halter style tie around the neck. She loved this dress and it came out really well and she still has it to this day.  She can't fit this one anymore but she said she is saving it for her daughters.
