My 5 year old daughter loves princesses and accessories. We decided together to go a different route since every other little girl will be in a Disney inspired costume. After looking at tons and tons of pictures, she settled on Marie Antoinette. We wanted to keep it clean since she is only 5.
I am an advanced beginner at sewing. I searched for days before finding a pattern I could use to make this dress. I scored a great deal on clearance home dec fabric. The hat was purchased at a thrift store and the embellishments were added by me from supplies I had. I hacked up the crinoline I wore under my wedding dress to give it extra poof! Her other accessories were purchased to complement the dress.
This costume was a show stopper. Even dad’s were telling me how awesome and beautiful she was. Each year I try to out do myself, but this one will be hard to top.
