Day 4-Cinderella Shirt

I know that yesterday I said that I would post Mickey Mouse shorts today, but I got a little side tracked and didn't do them. They are on the agenda for today though:o) However, I did get this one done on Tuesday night.

I am kind of under-impressed by this shirt:o) I had a great vision and when this vision came to be, I was just like, 'oh, okay.' Anyway, you can tell that it's supposed to be a Cinderella shirt. This was the first time that I had worked with satin....very slippery and kinda stretchy at times. 
I really like the "bubble skirt" on the bottom of the shirt. 
Here are some views of the under side to show you how everything was sewn together. The lining is actually shorter than the actual bottom of the shirt, so when sewn together, it creates this bubbles effect. You can do this on any pattern you choose.

 I had to make sure that I got those white things on the side...not really sure what they are called:o) I am happy with how it turned out though....but like I said, slightly under-whelmed.
I was able to make this shirt for less than $4. Not too shabby:o)
So let me know what you think. S.R. loved it of course and wanted to touch it the whole time she was trying it on:o)
Make sure to leave a comment on the Minnie Mouse Tutorial Post for your chance to win a pair of Minnie Mouse Ears hair bows. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning. Have a great day!!
