A quick zebra dress for a book week parade

A asked to go to her school book week parade as Savannah the Zebra Fairy (from the Rainbow Magic Fairy book series).  A quick visit to Spotlight and A selected the fabric - a stretch zebra velour!  Thankfully we agreed on a simple shift dress.
The cut-out
I will say now that I really did not enjoy making this dress, even though it only took a few hours.  The material was difficult to work with and I am not confident with stretch fabrics, so I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out.  But A was delighted with it and I was happy with that.


The finished product, complete with boots and necklace.  But A decided to ditch the fairy wings at the last hour.
A happy camper!
