Cinderella Success


So i did it-never thought i would but i made my daughter her first Halloween costume ever! The most fluffy,puffy,twirly Cinderella dress ever, (i probably bought Joann's out of light blue tulle) I'm guessing i used 20 yards but it was SO worth it!! 
For the top i made my own simple pattern-pieced and sewed it together, the skirt i used THIS amazing tutorial!

My daughter asks me to wear this dress daily....so much i had to hide it at least until Halloween gets a little closer,i don't want it to get old ;)

 It's done! And it actually turned out pretty nice!

  Naturally, after finishing, i had to do a little photo shoot, and the little 'princess' was more than willing! (i'll spare you all the pictures we took and just show you a couple)

I did get her a crown that actually matched the dress perfectly but it went missing-i was pretty bummed :( So instead i got to make her a cute headband instead, thankfully she still calls it her "crown"  

The little munchkin couldn't love it more, if she could she would wear it all day everyday!

So what are you kids going to be for Halloween?

  110. Did you make the top or did you take that off another dress? Was it hard? I'm super dumb when it comes to sewing.. but I try.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I made the top,for me it was kind of hard but just because i was still new to sewing.
