Here is my latest DIY attempt. I used my Radioactive dress pattern for the top (and a large men's button up) and a thrifted linen skirt for the bottom.

I really love this one, and I feel like a princess when I wear it! I think that's one of the things that always separated me from the other girls when I was younger. Everyone considers a princess dress to be something covered in sparkles, but I usually wanted the peasant-y rags that they were wearing prior to fairy godmother transformations. This dress is very comfy, and the only downside is I do have some Marilyn Monroe Steam Vent moments.
It's not perfect, because it was whipped up at 1 AM when I couldn't sleep, but it's still one of my favorites.
