Hi! After much internal debate, I decided to be Snow White this year (other choices were Lucy from peanuts or Dr. Mrs. The Monarch). Unfortunately, I underestimated the amount of sewing  needed but luck was on my side. I researched the Snow White movie (HD version) on a certain video viewing site and recorded the small details, such as the color of her shoes, the shape of the red parts on her sleeves, and the color of her cape. Reference image:

My costume:

I traipsed to the nearest consignment stores and found the fabric for the bodice, the petticoat, and the shoes which I altered from ugly cowboy boots. I know now that I'm no leather worker. You can see the shoes better here- it was a bit windy excuse the hair :

The rest of the materials were found in my mom's fabric stash and a fabric store. Construction was relatively simple although I'm a novice at best. I found a headband tutorial and stuffed the bow with cotton balls. The bodice is Simplicity pattern 5582 of the Renaissance costume, and I have to say that I bought a pattern that didn't fit me and kind of winged it. I'm not really an instructions person! I had never installed a zipper before either, and installed it upside down- to close it you have to zip down. Smiley The skirt is a simple rectangle skirt with the seam in the back, and the collar is just stiff interfacing and white broadcloth cut to size and hand sewn to the bodice. A couple more gratuitous images:

What made this costume worth it was the overwhelming response from children. I went to the local parade and little girls kept coming up to take pictures, and I asked one of them who her favorite princess was and she said "You!". I'll never forget that!

P.S. There are so many amazing costumes on these boards! I can't believe the creativity and art people produce for my favorite day of the year!

Love this!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

It's Wonderful!!  What a nice thrill for all the kids to see Snow White!  You did a fantastic job.

The zipper being upside down makes me giggle, - oh how many times I've done similar things!
