Hot! More With That Yellow Fabric

Belle-penWhen Penelope saw me working on my Yellow Rose of Texas dress she naturally assumed that anything made with yellow fabric would become a Belle dress for her. She does get points for being observant.

Once I had finished my dress, I used the leftover fabric and the pattern that I used for her Rapunzel dress to make her own Belle ballgown dress. It was quick and dirty — I didn't line it and the rose is a bit anemic. But it's a play dress and sufficient enough for dancing around to Be Our Guest.
