This was my dream dress.
I was planning on making it for years, but kept telling myself I can’t.
When I was asked to be a judge at a Cosplay conference I decided to finally do it. The conference was on March this year, on Purim [which is sort of like a Jewish Halloween].
Because I was a judge at the con. I did not take any preparation photos, and I only have one taken by chance on my phone by someone. I also don’t have many pictures of it at all, and didn’t have time to re-take any, sorry!
If you look at pictures of the Disney dress you’ll see the skirt and the “straps” of the corset are in a brighter colour. I’ve have seen many people use brighter yellow satin, but to my opinion the brighter colour means a material with a different texture, and that was my interpretation on the dress.
Hope you like it :)
Lots and lots of yellow satin:
1-1.5 Meters for the corset, that also has boning and all.
6 M for the skirt, that has a top layer of golden cloth, also 6 M, and some more for the “straps” of the corset, or whatever it should be called.
The yellow sash was about 3 M long and 15 cm wide, doubled.
I made the Crinoline myself, 2 years ago for a different fancy dress.
Hair decoration was made out of double-layared satin ribbon sewn on corset boning left-overs, and had 3 pins sewn inside to hold it in place. Very proud of that one :)
Earrings, buttons, flowers and even yellow shoes!
