In the spirit of visiting Disneyland for the first time EVER this week, I thought we’d kick off a fun tutorial (possibly series if people are interested) showing how to make different Disney princess dresses for less than $10.

While writing this post I realized I haven’t done a tutorial in quite a while. What can I say, I’m not a big crafter. Which means if you see a tutorial on my blog that means it’s freakishly simple (because if it’s too hard I’d rather just tell you where to buy it), and super cheap. I did a simple tutu dress tutorial years ago and this kind of builds on that adding to them and making them themed like different princesses. Since Disneyland is home to Princess Aurora’s castle I thought we’d start with her.

Back in the day I made tutus all the time, so I had a bunch of extra tulle laying around, but I still went out and bought some more since she’s grown a couple feet since the last time I made one of these, and this being a full-length ball-gown style, I needed to have lots of tulle.

If you have a princess in your home who loves to dress up, and don’t want to drop a ton of money on the fancy costumes, this is another cute alternative that you can whip up in less than an hour.

You don’t need much for your no-sew Sleeping Beauty tutu dress.

Materials:

  • Pink tulle the 6in X 25yd rolls make it really easy.
    • I try to get them on sale for $2.50/roll You’ll need about 4 to get it as thick and long as my daughter’s.
  • White tulle
  • Crocheted headband (or tutu top) 6-10in wide
  • Scissors to cut the tulle
  • Ribbon for the straps
  • Clear small rubber bands for tying the ends together

No-sew Sleeping Beauty tutu dress tutorial:

Measure your princess from him to feet. Cut all of your tulle to twice that length. For my daughter this was 16.5in so I cut the tulle 33in long.

Fold a piece of tulle in half then grab the bottom of the crocheted top and push the tulle loop through.

Grab the two ends of the tulle and pull them through the loop, making a slip knot.

Continue all the way around until you achieve your desired fullness.

Measure your little girl around her shoulders and cut strips of tulle to be 2Xs that length. Find where you want the center of the front of the dress to be and slip the white tulle halfway through the font of the crocheted top.I used my rubber bands to keep the ends together and didn’t tie it in a bow until it was on my daughter (when she took it off she was able to keep the bow in tact so she can easily slide it on or off later.

Measure how long you want your shoulder straps to be, cut the ribbon and tie to the front and back. I measured about an inch and a half from the center of the crocheted top. Another option is tying the straps together in a halter top.

Cut more white tulle at just under half the length of your tutu. This will be the white part of Aurora’s dress. Tie these sections on the same way you tied the pink tulle. I tied about 4-5 strips on all the way around, then connected the ends together at the bottom with clear rubber bands.

(Optional) Add more ribbon embellishments to the bodice. My daughter didn’t want me to add anything else, but I may go back and add three small strips of white ribbon down the center.

Try it on and have a photo shoot!
