Something that Primus has been asking Santa for for a couple years is a Rapunzel dress-up dress. So this Christmas I finally decided to make that happen. But to my chagrin, they just don't make dress-up clothes in her size! I could find them (REALLY hard to find and expensive) in size 7-8. But I want her to be able to enjoy it for a while and she is so tall so she is starting to move into size 10 already! I found some really great nightgowns in her size that would work but those things are 50 bucks!
So I had to figure out how to make my own. Here's a picture for reference.
You can see a good tutorial on how to make this super easy tutu here. I think I bought 5 or 6 yards of tulle. Instead of a regular elastic waist, a friend suggested I use a crochet elastic headband. I really like how it looks! You can buy it by the yard at Jo-Ann's.
For the top, I just sewed ribbon onto a shirt. It would have been a lot better if I had used a regular T-shirt, but I just used what she already had.
