I'm making my boyfriends three year old daughter wearable versions of Disney Princess costumes. I have already started Belle, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. I found this art print of Snow White while searching for inspiration

I would like do the sleeves but I'm having a tough time envisioning it
Any tips would be appreciated

It's actually really easy - you make the sleeves on your dress (red and blue stripes) very full and gathered at both shoulder and wrist.  Then you have to make some cuffs that tie on - that would be the yellow part.  You adjust the sleeve to make it more or less puffy by pulling the fabric out a little, just like loosening a tucked in shirt.

Forgive the crude drawing, but this is what it will look like:

What rossie said, except that the blue stripes are probably actually ribbons attached to the yellow gauntlets.  Here's an adult costume pattern that shows something sort of similar in one of its views: http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m4107-products-1009.php?page_id=493

It may be easier to do this than to try and find red/blue striped fabric.

OOH I like that idea too. And it works better since I have some blue cotton gauze that dyed too dark to be Cinderella's underskirt.
