Snow White Costume
My youngest daughter was wearing her big sisters Snow White
costume the other day. When I walked into her room I found her crying.
She had taken off the costume and I was not sure why she was upset.
She said "I am never wearing that dress again!"
When I asked why she replied "because it falls off my shoulders"
I knew it was too big for her but didn't realise it was that big a deal.
I told her that I would make her a new Snow White costume, one that fits :)
I used the original dress as inspiration along with this tutorial.
I also used the basic peasant top pattern from this book as a basis for the dress.
From memory the patterns in this book run a little small so I opted for a size 5.
After sewing it up it was obviously too big around the waist so
I just sewed a little elastic along the waist seam to bring it in a little.
It just means my girl will get plenty of wear before I need to make a bigger one.
Before I had even finished the dress my girls had grabbed an apple
and were ready for a photo shoot. I guess I have trained them well ;)
My kids have now put in their order for a Belle dress and an Aurora Dress!
At least I know it has been a success :)
