V dressed as Cinderella on the day we went to Epcot. Cinderella is her favorite of the princesses, and we were going to be attending the Akershus Royal Banquet (princess dinner) that evening. We ended up seeing Aurora and Jasmine in the World Showcase, too, even before we got to the dinner!
About the construction of the dress:
This dress is view A of Simplicity 2463. I made the sleeves from a contrasting organza sprinkled with sparkly stars, and used the same organza to make the peplum. It took some research to figure out how to make that peplum (and I’m still not sure I could repeat it!), but they turned out okay!
The pattern calls for a gathered, elasticized sleeve hem, which I did at first, but V really didn’t like it, and I don’t blame her. The organza was stiff and scratchy, so they were uncomfortable. Instead, I removed the elastic and took a tuck in the hem, and I LOVE the result. They look more like Cinderella’s sleeves and are much more elegant and properly finished-looking.
