Recently, I came across the absolutely beautiful Beachcomber Dress over at Ruffles and Stuff. Now that we live near the beach, I find myself being drawn to all things nautical and beach-y. I could just picture Raileigh picking up shells in her very own Beachcomber dress.
So, I found the largest plain white tee I could in my stash. It wasn’t quite as big as I would have liked, but sometimes you just work with what you’ve got.
I only deviated from Disney’s instructions very slightly. I was not getting the whole rope braid thing (I am certain it was just me). So, I braided the straps and belt using a regular old three-strand braid. I also made the belt a bit chunkier.
The dress is a bit short for my liking due to the smaller-than-I wanted shirt we started with. However, that’s nothing that a cute pair of leggings can’t remedy!
Now that the hurricane is past, we just need to head out to the beach and collect some shells in our lovely Beachcomber Dress!
