Liberty Rapunzel Dress
Having been to Bavaria this summer and seen Schloss Neuschwanstein (the original inspiration for Disney’s castle) and the traditional dress from the region: the Dirndl (the inspiration for Snow White’s and various Disney princesses’s dresses), I decided to make this for my 6 year old. It was such fun to make! I used pattern Simplicity 4764. Modifications: 1. after cutting out the front panel (piece No.1) I added a 4″ wide strip of Liberty Capel (held in place with Coccoina glue stick) then pinned satin ribbon in place (see pic 2 for spacing measurements) and stitched along both edges of ribbon. Then I stitched Lace to cover the edges of the Liberty strip and ribbon. I also added lace to the front edges of the overskirt and made the overskirt edges straight and the full length of the dress.
Fabrics: Skirt: Liberty Capel
, Bodice: Oakshott
, Overskirt: Organdy (from local shop).
