Snow White (Shoomlah)
It's been a while since I made a costume for myself, almost a year actually! When it came time to make something for Halloween I wanted something recognizable to wear at my job at a Halloween store. I fell in love with the historical Disney princess art drawn by Shoomlah and it all went from there! You can see her artwork on her DeviantArt.
The snood was one of the most annoying parts of this costume. It's made of a bunch of trim with hand sewn pearls between the diamonds and sewn down to bias tape with elastic in it. In order to keep the pieces from shifting I pinned them to a cardboard box and only removed the pins when I had to sew one of the joints together!
The main part of the bodice is suede and has center panel embroidery that I did free motion on my machine. The gold on the sleeves was also embroidered with zig zag stitching to mimic the artwork. The rest of the fabrics are a loose weave boucle and a cotton eyelet. The back laces up with gold laces.
The skirt is casa collection satin with a jacquard band and decorative bias tape. The skirt had to have shoulder straps attached at the waistline to keep it sitting high enough on my waist.
