Children's Fairy Tale Collection

Once upon a time.......

A Grandma wanted to spoil her granddaughter who was desperate for a Disney inspired fairy tale princess dress, based upon the theme of a young girl who was stopped going to the Ball!

The little girl knew that if she was going to be able to get such a dress, she must earn her reward stickers with Mum and had no idea that Grandma was secretly in touch with Dawn and arranging for such a treat.

The Grandma's wishes were that the dress must have:-


  • Oodles and oodles of "swoosh"

  • A train so that her Granddaughter could go up and down the stairs just like a Princess!

  • Butterflies sewn on the gathered organza bodice

  • A separate silk bodice worn underneath the dress because the little girl struggled with fabrics touching her skin.

  • And finally, a replica of the dress made for George her granddaughter's soft cuddle buddy toy.

And so, the measurements were handed over and the creation began!

But, as a former Primary School Teacher, Dawn wanted to ensure that the little girl had the full experience - and so, a little package of extra's were added:-


  • A little treasure chest, with butterfly inside, just like the film

  • A secret hidden message within the dress with the message "Have courage, be kind" embroidered.

  • Butterfly garland for her bedroom.
