Cinderella Ball Gown Tutorial

Cinderella ball gown 1

The new Cinderella ball gown from the live action film of the same name is the most beautiful costume to grace the movie screen this year. We’ve featured a few takes on the elegant dress here, and now, it’s time to look at another one. Grace has posted a full tutorial illustrating how to make the dress on her blog and includes everything from reference material, to supplies used, to explanations of how to achieve a skirt as voluminous as the one seen in the film.

Cinderella’s dress looks similar to that worn by Snow White in Mirror Mirror, and Simplicity has a pattern for that (1728) so Grace used it as a base and made modifications. She crafted a bodice out of practice fabric, compared it to photos from the film, and then made the bodice from satin. She used six layers of fabric for the skirt to give it the appearance of changing colors and to give it volume. It took approximately 11 yards of fabric to complete the skirt.
