Rainbow Belle Disney Dress

Its that time of year again and Little One wants a princess of everthing dress…once again no pressure!

She decided this year for her 6th Birthday she wanted a the simplicity pattern that was of Belle from beauty and the beast, in rainbow colours.

the original Belle Dress pattern

Somehow I found rainbow satin and rainbow chiffon in 2 different shops (World of Sewing in Tunbridge Wells and The Range in Maidstone, Kent)

Then I thought I know this is the most complicated dress I have ever made, i think I should pattern match…what was I thinking

Pattern matching the rainbow

The instructions were great and I found it alot easier to make than I thought it would be.

Princess of Everything Dress

She looked amazing in it and better than that she loved it too

With a hooped underskirt

I really struggled to do rolled hems on the chiffon my overlocker just didn’t like it so most of it I did by hand!
