Wow, I was so excited to make this pattern. It’s a beautiful princess dress sewing pattern, inspired by Belle from Beauty and the Beast. It can be used as fancy dress for that special party, or as a flower girl pattern too. Don’t be intimidated if you don’t have much experience – although it looks professional, it is easier to do than you might expect. You can make it with a knit back or a zip. This dress can be used for a wide variety of princess costumes. Just check out our customer gallery below. My favorite part of the dress are the sleeves. I made them with a tulle overlay which makes them look so delicate. A heart embellishment sewn to the edge finished of the look. This is one of our most beloved patterns that you will adore too.
