Made for Mermaids Sophie Dress

I just love the newest pattern from Made for Mermaids.  I have already made 3 of them.  This one pictured I made for my 3 year old niece for Christmas.  I made this using the Sophie pattern.  It can be purchased here

This dress has several different options.  First, you can choose between 3/4 length sleeves or long sleeves.  I made this one with 3/4 length sleeves.  The center of the bodice is the perfect backdrop for embroidery.  I used a Disney princess design of Aurora from a Brother card for my embroidery machine.  For this design you must have a Brother machine that can use Disney embroidery cards.  I purchased my machine and this card almost 8 years ago so I don't know if this card is available for purchase anymore.  I choose to do a flat piping on the bodice and the instructions for that are also included in the pattern.

For the back there are 3 different options for closures.  The options are buttons, zipper, or exposed zipper.  I did an exposed lace zipper on this dress.

Now for the details on the fabric used.  For the main fabric I used a brand new Disney Princess fabric called I Am Princess.  It can be found on my website here.  For the center of the bodice (white) I used Michael Miller Fairy Frost in Snow.  It is white with a subtle shimmer to it and is a great back drop to the embroidery.  For the flat piping on either side of the bodice I used Riley Blake's Floriography Branches in Pink.  The zipper I bought on etsy from a shop called Fabricmade.  She is located in China so it took about 2 weeks to get in the mail.
