Look What I Made! Rapunzel Gown!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I had great ideas for the theme of Ella's 4th birthday this spring until she decided she wanted to have a Tangled party instead...bye bye plans, lol! It's perfect though because now I have lots of great new ideas circled around the Rapunzel theme! Of course she would be needing a dress for her event so I began my search. There are the ones you can buy through Disney but I wanted something more unique and one-of-a-kind so I searched all over etsy. I came to the conclusion that instead of spending $100 on a custom dress (which was out of the question anyway) I would just buckle down and make one myself. So, that same day (this past friday) I headed to my local craft store and bought my fabric and by Sunday evening the dress was complete! It's amazing what you can get done if you just set your mind to it and make yourself work on a project. The entire project cost me about $15 in materials and notions since I used coupons!! The gown is a bit large but this will ensure that she'll get a few years of wear out of it! Ella loves it and I cannot wait to see her wear it on her special day! I just love planning the details of kids birthday parties! Maybe I'll add it to the list of things I "do", lol!

And here's Ella practicing the Smoulder!! This "look" comes very naturally for her...I get it a lot! Followed by a ton of attitude!!

And this is another shot from when we were playing around doing Rapunzel hairdos a few days ago! Can you tell we love Tangled?!!
