So I was excited for this year to make my Halloween costume sadly I fractured my elbow and all I had to show for it was a lovely costume on my doll and limited fun to be had......lol but not to worry it wasn't a complete loss I found myself having fun taking the young tikes treat or treating and scoring some loot for myself. So I'll just add my experience for this costume I had fun making.

Here is the inspiration for the costume from the actual movie

Here is my version of the costume.

Pattern Description:
It's the pattern for Snow White and The Huntsman....

Pattern Sizing:
Its a size 12

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes it looked like the picture with a few modifications. I did the short version of this dress

Were the instructions easy to follow?

The instructions were easy but at the same time a bit confusing. I am an experience seamstress so I kinda went on my own tangent an took the liberty with changing some things. The difficult part was the sleeves if I had to do it again I'd probably approach that situation differently but hey you live and learn.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Dislike: I didn't like that ruffle portion on the main dress. Maybe because I chose ivory and it just didn't look that polish for me so I omitted that.

The short dress sleeves my fabric was kinda heavy so to add the snaps was a bit difficult for me. I wish I would have doubled the #23 pattern piece made it a bit longer that way I could add the straps either inside the fold or maybe it would have taken the entire fabric. I don't know but it gives me some ideas.

The main dress sleeves the bottom with the interfacing was a new thing for me. Made it sort of stiff and I didn't like that really but that's just me.

Like: I loved it...I fully lined the short dress although the pattern only calls for the top. I like the peekaboo red a bit of an homage to Disney Snow White. Otherwise I was content. I also did a lot of top stitching because it made it look cleaner. Also I didn't have the patience to keep ironing the thing but it looked good on the heavier fabric.

Fabric Used:

I used heavy satin for the bottom dress, red taffeta for the lining on the short dress. I don't know what fabric my short dress but it was heavy suede but it came already with interfacing but I think that's because of the stitching but it saved me some $$$ with buying the interfacing. The yard was 4 bucks and I thought that was a steal especially since its 60 wide.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I couldn't use the snaps because of the difficulty I had with the short dress fabric so I just attached the sleeves to the actual dress itself. I liked it I would have preferred the snaps for the vintage feel but again turned out great.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would....especially since I'm a perfectionist not really but I like it. Maybe I just too much fun...

This pattern was great, I found it really helpful. Although there were a lot of pieces to cut hey I managed...I also added a couple inches in the back because I wanted to lace it up from the back instead of adding a zipper. I wanted to keep it period peace...It was enjoyed by all...labor of love

That looks awesome! Good replication. I didn't care much for that movie, but the majority of the time I was watching it I was admiring the costumes.

Dude. So true. The only good thing that came out of that movie were some freaking amazing costumes.

Thanks for the review! I'm thinking of using the top part of this for my Snow White costume this year.
