Rapunzel Costume



This month I decided to challenge myself and make my niece a Halloween Costume. She loves the movie Tangled and so I decided to make her a Rapunzel Dress.  I used Simplicity 2065- made in size 3- It is a slight bit too long for her and a little bit too big in the bodice. I read several reviews saying the bodice is sized too small and it is way too long but I didn't experience that.

It will be nice for it to fit her in January- I think she is planning on having a Tangled birthday party- so she can wear the dress then too!









This is my first time sewing something so detailed. The pattern was great- not too complicated, and I love the way the dress turned out!

My mother and I made the braid (Instructions for the braid came with the pattern). My mother also made the felt flowers just using felt, hot glue, and beads.

Seeing Marley play in this dress was just too fun!

Thanks to my talented sister Camille of Camille Nolan Photography for taking these photos of Marley!!


Eli wanted to dress up too, so we made him a makeshift Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume.  His real one should be better!


I will be linking up to some of THESE PARTIES!




 
 
Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!!!

I am attempting to make a Rapunzel dress for my 3 yr old niece this year. Did you design your own pattern or purchase one? I would like her costume to be as authentic as possible and you did a wonderful job on yours. Any information you can share will be greatly appreciated! :)
