Welcome Ariel

Ariel is one of the first dresses that was added to the shop. She is fun and twirly and great for summer, but pair her up with a little shirt underneath and some leggings and she can be worn all year round! The Little Mermaid has always been one of my absolute favorite movies. The songs are catchy. The characters are hilarious. It has everything you need... and so does this dress!

The dress is just as comfy as it is cute! Details include sweet skinny reverse knot straps, elastic back, and detailed bodice with ruffle. Gorgeous minty seafoamy Kona Cotton* goodness brings the character to life and is soft against your little ones skin. All fabrics are pre-washed in gentle detergents (safe for your little ones) so your dress is ready to wear when it arrives! *Kona Cotton is a durable and high quality 100% cotton fabric by Robert Kaufman.

Ariel comes in several split sizes from 18m/2t all the way to 7/8. With an elastic back and adjustable skinny straps, this dress is meant to last through several growth spurts. Order it on the longer side and your cherished handmade dress can be enjoyed by your little mermaid for years to come..... even as a top when she outgrows the length!

All our seams are professionally serged. That means they have been finished off and won't fray in the wash. Our very first models are still wearing their goodies from YEARS ago and haven't had any issues with wear and tear.... and they are some rambunctious little kiddos! We highly suggest that you wash your handmade dress in a delicate wash, on cold, and line dry or tumble dry on low. However, if you are in a rush, go ahead and toss it into your regular load of laundry with the rest of your colors and be confident knowing that your dress has been made with every attention to detail in it's construction!

If you're looking to dress up your little American Doll too, then Camelot's Treasure's is where you need to head next! You can find her ARIEL dress there, as well as Belle and many other adorable goodies for your dolly.

Need something to accessorize your dress with? We've got that covered too! Head on over to Style Me Jaime and grab yourself a GORGEOUS floral halo. It is sure to make your sweetheart feel like a princess and all halos are handmade by the momma of our darling little Ariel model! After you grab your halo, stop on over at Ella Bella Boutique and top of your little one's look with her very own Ariel chunky beaded necklace with adorable clay Ariel center!

We can't complete our Ariel post without introducing you to our TREMENDOUSLY talented photographer, Carolina, from C. Gonzales Photography! Carolina is such a pleasure to work with! She is overflowing with talent and knew just how to capture the look we were after. She always checked in to update me on the photoshoot, editing, etc...  and how things were going. Communication is definitely NOT an issue when working with this photographer! I am beyond pleased to have worked with Carolina and am excited to announce that we will be working together again, in the near future, to bring you Ariel's casual blue dress, her pink gown AND a fun Flounder inspired dress too!

Ariel's mermaid inspired dress is made by myself, using patterns by Create Kids Couture and Molly Blossom Designs. *modifications have been made*

Without further ado, here's Ariel!
