Belle Dress by weblore Belle Dress by weblore
This is the dress I made for a friend I had at the time. I loved making this dress! I used photos from her Beauty and the Beast musical photo book to make my design. I drew up a simpler version that had a decent budget and looked like it would flatter her. I had made a Renaissance dress years before that I thought would make a great base. I took the pattern and flipped its empire waistline and changed the angle of the sleeves. I also made the skirts longer to compensate for the ruching for the underskirt and the gathering and draping on the outer skirt. The flower and organza around the neckline was made to be removable because she needed the dress for two different plays. We were in Cinderella, in which she wanted the flower, and Twelfth Night, in which she didn't. I had also created Belle's blue dress for her for Cinderella (completely my own design), but I never got a photo of it.

I wish I could do it more. There's no fabric store in my town thanks to what Wal-Mart did, so it's not as easy to do.
