Sleeping Beauty Dress

My niece wanted a Sleeping Beauty dress for her birthday. Since her birthday was coming up, I wanted to make her one. After looking at tons of pictures online, I decided the Sleeping Beauty dress didn't look much different from the Cinderella and Snow White dresses. Unfortunately, there are some not-so-great knock off patterns on the market, none by Di-ny ofcourse. So, my plan was to use the pattern I already had on hand, Simplicity 2563. I drafted the other parts by hand.

I used a straight sleeve from this pattern, but drew up the over skirt and yoke. The final result? I think it turned out better than expected, and my niece absolutely loved it. Which is the joy of being the aunt to a 3-year old.

I will post my patterns later for you to download or you can email me and I will send it to you. 


  1. Do you still have this pattern? I have been searching high and low!
    Your turned out beautifully! I'm sure your niece loved it

  2. You can Buy the Simplicity Pattern still. I have the extra parts ready to turn into PDF, They just need to get scanned. I will try and get that out soon.
