Tangled, Rapunzel costume

I made Faith a princess dress based on the dress worn by Rapunzel in the cartoon Tangled.

I also opened my Etsy shop and this dress is in it! Check it out here

I sewed it all on my sewing machine that Laura bought for me. And there was a lot of handsewing too.

Hand felled seams.

That’s the first time I’ve used these metal eyelets. I think they look really nice.
I had the dress completely finished but the sleeves turned out just a little too tight, I had to rip seams and add a triangle of fabric

I really didn’t feel like felling the seams again, but I did and it looks a lot better and the sleeves aren’t too tight anymore. You can see how loose and comfy they are in the picture of her by the tree. I would have fixed it right away, but I asked her if they were fine and she said ‘yes’
‘Are they to tight?’
‘Yes’
‘Do you want me to fix it yet?’ ‘No’ so I waited until the next day to do it. She is just too cute!

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11
