I think I have drowned in Tulle!

So for the past five days I have been working on this project. Doesn't it look lovely! Ha ha. Can you tell what it is? Well it is a costume for my 3 year old daughter. I have been thinking about this costume since last year when I saw this really cool Belle pattern. I ended up buying the yellow fabric last year while it was on sale and waited to get the rest of the stuff until this year. To my great surprise, my daughter informed me that she was going to be Jesse from Toy Story 2. I tried to convince her otherwise and she wouldn't give, and then one day a miracle happened and she told me she wanted to be Belle, I jumped at the chance and started sewing before she could change her mind.
After a zillion layers of Tulle, this is the end result. I'll take pictures of her in it later with the hairdo and everything, there are also arm gauntlets that are supposed to look like gloves. When my daughter tries on the dress she glows, I am glad she likes it, and I hope you all do too!

WOW, Shawntel--and you said you weren't a seamstress. As always, your modesty is unwarranted! How beautiful!
