Rapunzel Inspired Dress

There is a very special little papoose who is so in love with Rapunzel right now, that I feel like a new creation is in order. I am hoping to have it done before Christmas so I can give it to her as a present, along with the Tinkerbell Inspired Outfit I have been meaning to make her for literally weeks now! It started awhile back when she wanted "My pencil!" I couldn't understand what she was saying at first, but she kept repeating it, "My pencil, my pencil!" I had no pencil on me at the time, and I couldn't imagine why she wanted one until it dawned on me she wanted Rapunzel. I'm a little sad though because she's now pronouncing it correctly!

I've had several designs drawn out, but I seem to have lost them! I think they are still packed away in a box somewhere from the move, and I am so upset with myself for not being better organized. I faintly remember some of the design elements I originally drew, and I managed to come up with something I feel is indicative of Rapunzel's dress while throwing in my own personal style to keep things from being stale.

I kept the fabrics simple with cotton ones and stayed with feminine colors. I seem to veer more towards plain colored fabrics than flashy prints with my fairytale collection. I think it helps showcase the design and the craftsmanship I strive to perfect. I am really excited about completing this design and adding it to my shop, Rapunzel is such a fun character to be inspired by and create a new dress from!


  1. how adorable and can't wait to see how it turns out.

  2. "my pencil" = Rapunzel, now that it adorable :)
