Handmade Halloween: Princess Dress Giveaway (closed)


As a part of my Handmade Halloween Series I as well as many of my blogging friends will be sharing some awesome tips for making homemade costumes. I know that not all of you are sewing inclined so I’ve also got a few fun giveaways planned.
Today I’m giving away a duplicate of the princess dress that I made for naughty niece L this year for her birthday. By the way she absolutely loves hers so I think that your little one will love it too. It’s a bit big on L so I think this would fit for a 5-6 year old. The back has my elastic ruching so that makes the fit more flexible and more likely to last longer.
I’d love you to share this with all of your friends. Even if they already have a Halloween plan this would make a great dress up outfit, Christmas present or like was the case for me birthday present.
For those of you who want to make your own, I’ll be sharing my tutorial on how to add that poofy bustle thing to the skirt tomorrow! updated: Princess Dress Bustle Tutorial here.
And just since I have already gotten the question on Instagram (@raegunramblings) – No I will not be selling these. So if you want one enter the giveaway.
