Did you catch a glimpse of the lavender dress I found in my Savers Halloween video? Well, that wasn’t the dress I ended up using for Pumpkin’s Rapunzel dress. Of course, after the cameras were turned off, I found an even more perfect dress to refashion.
With it’s chiffon overlay, I knew this old, thrifted prom dress was going to work perfectly, especially when embellished with a couple spools of ribbon and paired with the Rapunzel Yarn wig.
-Cut dress apart (cut off sleeves, bodice and skirt).
-Dye underlayer of dress a deeper lavender.
-Recut bodice to fit. Decorate with ribbons.
-Sew ribbon onto sleeves and replace elastic at elbow.
-Cut skirt to fit shortening at waist (I wanted to use the existing hems on both layers). Sew ribbon to chiffon layer. Gather at waist.
-Attach skirt to bodice
-Sew on Velcro closures at center back (it is a costume after all).
