ECOWEEN: Old Bridesmaid's Dress Fit For a Lil Princess

ECOWEEN: Old Bridesmaid's Dress Fit For a Lil Princess

Be your daughter's fairy godmother and snip and hem that old bridesmaid dress collecting dust in the back of your closet into a princess dress Cinderella would envy! No worries if you aren't a seamstress, babysugar has put together this very simple video tutorial for cutting down dresses. Then, add some embellishments from things found around the house — gift ribbon, a broach, a clip-on earring or ric-rac — and your vision comes to life. Pair it with some sparkle or dress shoes your daughter already owns and the ensemble is almost complete.

To put your tot's mark on the costume, give her the aluminum foil that covered last night's brownies so she can cut or twist it into complementary jewels — a crown, a bracelet or magic wand. Your darling can make it as basic or ornate as she wishes. To see the finished costume on our lil model, check out the gallery!

when i wad little i was a princess for a halloween and i had the most amazing costume: because it was cold where we lived, my aunt took an old afghan blanket and fashioned it into a cape/poncho and covered the outside of it with gold shiny material so it looked princess-y but the tassles hung out the bottom and it was really warm! and i simply wore warm clothes underneath, with a wand, makeup done up, and a tiara
