So, I am a huge fan of the movie Pan's Labyrinth, and when I saw this dress, I knew I had to make it. When I sewed it, I barely knew how to sew, and it was my first time ever sewing a dress or sleeves or anything. But I feel I did a pretty good job, especially since I had no pattern and had to wing it. I also made a sort of mock petticoat to fluff the dress up, but it is truly hideous.

Here are the pictures!


Me with costume-pride!

I have come a long way in my costuming since then, it astounds me. Still, as my first dress and sleeve attempt, I am pretty thrilled with it.

I love, LOVE, LOVE that movie too!  That is a wonderful costume!  You'll have to try the Princess Moanna in the otherworld fancy dress next. 
great job, great idea!

Thats what I thought when I saw it. It looks very similar to Disney's version of Alice In Wonderland. Love it  Cheesy
