Ellie always wanted to be a ballet dancer and wear dresses specially made
for this kind of dancing.
She looked at all the books she could find, to see what the dresses had
looked like back through the years.
Her mum knew she wanted a dress and made this one specially for her.
She used Ellie's pink tea shirt and dyed lots of frilly petticoats for the skirt, she even made Ellie a flower band for her hair.
Ellie got her wish and her dress and was able to dance like all the ladies in her books.
Her dreams came true.
