I will admit that I’m a little obsessed with all things Disney. Especially when it comes to Disney Princesses! I’m super excited to be taking my 2 year old daughter to Disneyland soon, along with my mom who hasn’t been there in almost twenty years! (Yes, I’m leaving baby C with Daddy!)
When I started this blog, I had no idea what I would end up writing about. I had originally thought that it would have been more “mom” stuff, but after discovering how much fun I am having sewing, it has turned out to be more of a crafting and sewing blog. Hopefully anyone who has taken the time to visit my blog has been enjoying the tutorials I’ve shared.
Today I don’t have a tutorial, but I wanted to share something I made using someone else’s pattern.
My daughter, E, loves Snow White and so I decided to make her a towel cover-up that looked like her dress. I found the pattern for the peasant dress on this blog, and then made a few changes.
1. I split the main part of the dress into two pieces to make a bodice and skirt. I constructed the pattern on paper using her instructions and then cut in the appropriate place to make the bodice and skirt pieces. I then sewed them together to make one piece again. I also sewed a piece of ribbon down the front of the bodice.
2. I added red to the sleeves. I cut six tear drop pieces out of red towel and the attached them to the sleeves using a satin stitch.
3. To give the dress a bit more shape, I added some elastic to the inside of the dress where the blue and yellow met.
We haven’t needed to use a towel cover-up since I’ve made the dress, but E loves wearing it around the house! Here she is admiring herself in front of the mirror the first time she tried it on! Don’t mind the messy room. 😉
