and was going to make her a new black sweatshirt, and she was going to be ready.
Of course, she's barely 3. She changed her mind. First, she wanted to be Ariel, the Little Mermaid. Then she wanted to be Tiana from The Princess and The Frog. After a few days, she settled on Disney's version of Rapunzel. She did waffle back and forth on Rapunzel and Ariel for a week before I bought any materials and told her she would be Rapunzel.
|How do you make a good Canadian halloween costume? Make it fit both under a coat for school and over a coat for trick or treating.|
I scaled the pattern down to 75% as I paper-fit the full size one to Aki and found it to fit perfectly. I figured Itsa was about 75% the size of Aki. I guessed right, but wish I hadn't as she'll outgrow it within a year.
I used two shades of purple satin I found in various remnant bins for the fabrics.
Ribbon as the bodice laces.
Trimmed the hem in lace from a thrift store.
I used single fold bias tape on the underarm and top of strap to finish the edges. The seam allowances are just serged.
I am really happy with the outcome! I'll be making her more for Christmas.
