Gold Belle Costume

Added Apr 2, 2010

Anaheim, Califor...






This child costume dress is inspired by the Beauty And The Beast gold dress that Belle wore. I created the pattern and sewed the dress myself using my machine and some hand stitching. The under bodice has plastic, cased boning sewed on the straight princess seams. The under bodice is sewed to an a-line skirt with tulle used for fullness of the over skirt. The top/over bodice is not boned.

Material Notes

The type of material that should be used is some type of gold satin fabric. You can choose to put a breathable type of material for the under bodice.




Garment Type
Blends, Organza, Polyester, Satin, Silk, Tulle

    Gorgeous! I’m doing one for my daughter’s birthday and I have a question about the construction: Did you gather the skirt panels before sewing them together to get the draping? Thanks!

      Sorry I haven’t logged onto Burdastyle in a long while but what I did was to sew all the panels together and then made channels along the seam allowances of the skirt to then fit cotton cording through the channels so I could gather them. Just secure the cords to the waist when you’re done sewing the channels and pulling cording through them. You then pull on the cords from the bottom of the skirt the length you want.

    This is a beautiful dress…exactly what I would love to have for my daughters drama production. She is Belle!!! You would not be interested in selling or making me one like it, by chance??? Just thought I would ask. Thanks
