Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Remix

Standard

Two years ago, we saw a stunning dress and tutorial on the Needle and Ted blog that used a technique called “Subtraction Cutting.”  It is a technique developed by Julian Roberts and isn’t something we would have even considered for a child until we saw the Needle and Ted blog post.  Isabella was too young at that time for such an avant-garde look, but when she turned 5 and we were at Disney World, it was time to try it.

This was one of the most fascinating dresses to sew because it was hard to tell how it will look until you start sewing it.  We had a yard or so of the Disney princess fabric on hand and paired it with some rose printed fabric that Isabella’s great-grandmother had a dress made out of 60 years ago.

Isabella looked like a Disney princess, but in a whole new way.  No scratchy polyester.  No seeing the same dress and hair over and over.  It was a one-of-a-kind dress for a day at the Magic Kingdom and Grand Floridian.

We got some amazing pictures of Isabella in front of the castle and in the elegant Grand Floridian and it was fun to do a more modern, custom Disney princess style for her.

Thank you Needle and Ted for showing how to make this dress for a child.  It worked!
