Casual Princesses

My two girls, 4 and 5, are in love with Disney Princesses, especially my youngest who has all the baby dolls and barbie dolls of each and every princess. Rapunzel and Merida are her favorite, where my eldest likes the older more traditional Snow White and Cinderella.

So my darling little princesses got a special night out with their dad to see Disney on Ice, Rockin' Ever After. They wanted to wear their Halloween costumes..... but I thought that a more casual outfit was more appropriate.

I decided to go with Snow White and Rapunzel since their outfits were more recognizable by the color palette than say Merida or Cinderella.
I used Simplicity Pattern 3511, the tunic with sleeve variation F.

For the red and blue sleeves, I just sewed stripes of red fabric (used ironable interfacing) onto the blue sleeves before attaching to the shirt.

I did the same for the Rapunzel sleeves. For the front faux tie I used interfacing to iron on the pink fabric with the rolled over edge, then stitched around the edges. Then hand stitched on a bow.... done!

The pattern is easy and came together quickly and I finished both shirts in a couple hours the night before the event.

They are perfect tops for the casual princess!


  1. That is an awesome idea, very creative.
