Dressing up for any Run Disney race is an absolute MUST. But for me, having a Disney running costume that is comfortable while I’m on the course is also a MUST. Here’s how I put together my Snow White running costume for the Disneyland Half Marathon.
How to make a Snow White Disney running costume
Supplies: 1 Team Sparkle skirt in Golden Yellow (super lightweight and so comfortable). 1 running tank (got mine at Target), 1 yard of 1″ soft knit elastic, 2 yards each of 1 1/2″ blue ribbon & 1″ red ribbon (you’ll have some extra to play with), Cape & collar (optional).
Measure around your upper arm. Cut 2 pieces of elastic to match that measurement. Sew elastic together in a circle. Be sure to sew the seam flat so there won’t be any chafing.
Cut 2 pieces of blue ribbon 9″ long
Cut 2 pieces of blue ribbon 10″ long
Cut 2 pieces of red ribbon 9″ long
Cut 2 pieces of red ribbon 10″ long
Cut 2 pieces of red ribbon 8″ long
Mark the middle of each piece of elastic. Pleat ribbon pieces and pin onto elastic as show in picture in the correct order of length. Sew with a zig zag stitch onto elastic.
Do the same on the second piece of elastic, but reverse the order of ribbon.
Pleat ribbon on other end and pin to tank, right sides together, matching 10″ blue ribbon to shoulder seam of tank and spacing out other ribbons on each side. There will be more ribbons toward the front of the tank then they back. Sew.
Try on tank with “puff sleeves” and adjust length of ribbons if neccessary.
Adding the cape is a little more complicated but here is the general idea and shape of the pieces:
Once collar is sewn and cape is attached, try on tank to get proper placement and tack collar in place at front tips.
