This is the third and final costume I made for my daughter for our Disneyland trip – her Aurora Dress. This was the hardest one to interpret in a modern way, and I am most proud of how this one turned out. I was thrilled to find this dress at primary.com with the pintucks that echo the vertical detailing on the Sleeping Beauty dress in the movie. I added the white ribbon and elastic at the top in place of the dramatic collar. I made the pink belt in place of the color blocking.
It was amazing to see how fancy and magical she felt in the dress. She naturally struck this pose to match Daisy. And ever since getting home, this has been her most-worn dress – not just of her new costumes but of all the clothes she owns. Perfect, since my goal was to make these dresses she could keep wearing after our trip! Which was your favorite of the Disney dresses? Aurora? Alice? Or Ariel? Let me know in the comments!
