Recent Projects - Fairytale Dress and Girl's White Regency

I'm still working hard on the family's 17th C. oufits. Look for pictures sometime next week. :^) Hopefully...

Until then, here are a couple of recent projects for Etsy clients:


A white cotton voile regency drawstring dress. This was for a 12-year old girl - I think it will be lovely for her special event. White dresses are always so elegant and simple. And I love doing this regency pattern - its just plain fun.


This next project I just finished yesterday. It was definately a little more complicated - quite a challenge!


A 'Tangled' Rapunzel dress in an adult size! How much fun is that?




The skirt is actually attached to a spagetti strap under bodice. The over bodice with the pink sleeves laces up the front with pink ribbon through hand-worked pink thread eyelets.

Frying pan and chameleon were not included with the costume.

Two layer skirt!

The skirt trim came from fabric.com - some lovely floral organza-backed ebroidery stuff decorated with pearly seed-beads. Cute!!

Neckline, waist, sleeves, and skirt all trimmed with lace.


Hope everyone is having a good Friday!

Wow, incredible work! I love the simplicity of the Regency gown, but you have some amazing skills to make that Rapunzel outfit. Lovely! I cannot wait until I'm advanced enough in sewing to make elaborate costumes. :-)

Hello, my name is Camille and I just started following. I got your link from Feelin' Feminine. I LOVE your blog! I just checked out your Etsy shop and *wow* I can only dream of sewing like you!

GORGEOUS work! Just a question about the "Tangled" dress:

Approximately how long did that take you? Because I see one approaching me in my future...and I would love to know in advance approximately how many hours/how much $$$ to charge the person.

I hope you were paid well!

I am in awe of your Rapunzel Dress! So jealous! I'm working on one atm, except I'm just modifying a dress I found at the op-shop. I won't be as close to the real thing as I'd hoped, but whatever :) A girl can always use a pretty pink princess dress!

Is this for sale?

Atlanta said...

It looks to be sold now. Awhh. Mattering on the price I probably would have bought this. (I was the one who asked if this was for sale) How much was the Rapunzel dress? (that is the one I was looking at)

Atlanta said...

Lovely gowns! I bet the Rapunzel gown was a lot of fun to make! Did you design the pattern? Is it for you or was it a commission? In any case, it is a wonderful gift to be able to turn fantasy into reality!

Atlanta said...

aw- thank you! I combined/changed several different patterns for the Rapunzel dress. - Yes that was my fisrt 'Tangled' comission. :)

Mak said...

I am a HUGE fan of the movie Tangled and have seen it many times. This dress looks exactly like Rapunzel's and it is beautiful! I LOVE your work.

Anonymous said...

Oh my Goodness! Please tell me I can purchase this!!!

Sarah said...

Did you use patterns for this? if so what did you use? I'm having trouble finding patterns to make this

Atlanta said...

Sarah, I used several different patterns to make the tangled dress. The outer bodice was based on Butterick 6196, and the underbodice was based on Simpilicty 7206. The skirt was a simple gathered panel skirt, and the sleeves I drafted myself. Hope this helps!

I would KILL for the Rapunzel dress!!!
