In January we are headed to our first Disney trip...so excited! We are going for my first full marathon and for the kids first ever Disney trip. For Christmas I thought it would be fun to make my daughter dress up clothes. I thought it would do double as gifts and clothes she could wear. I am in love with them. Now I kinda feel like I should make something for the little guy to wear so he doesn't feel left out:)
I also pinned a dress up wardrobe and thought It would be perfect to pear with it for the holidays.
So on too the tutorials I used...
For Bell I used crafterhours. I pretty much followed everything, except...I didn't use knit. Why, because I couldn't find it in the color and because I wanted it to be shiny like the other girls would be wearing at Disney. The other thing...for around the shoulders and waist I used material left over from a petti skirt. Mostly because I thought I had some white shinny stuff at home and I didn't which reflects on the Cinderella dress :)
Next up was Snow White. I pretty much followed the same top as bell, measured the length I wanted and then followed craftiness is not optional. It all came out pretty well. I did try and make it come to a point in the middle even though you can' t really see it in the pictures. I did a quick easy headband as well. I closed it the same way as Make it and love it's Cinderella dress.
For Cinderella I followed Make it and love it. So I tried to stay true to the tutorial. I had the blue material left over when when my oldest did a Baton competition many years ago. And like I said early I didn't have any white shinny material so I just went with what I had on hand.
For the wardrobe, I found this on pinterest. A neighbor was throwing a dresser away because the bottom draw was broke. I snagged it right up and I went to work. I would have like to use batting behind the fabric, but I didn't have any and it was not a "need" so I went without it.
I searched long and hard for a mirror, I wanted her to be able to look in the mirror after she was all dressed up. I finally found this at target on clearance for 9.50. It is a tad to wide, but it will work.
On the other side hooks to hand hats or necklaces. I can't wait for her to see it all
