Hi Everyone!
I am working on a huge photoshoot project where Im going to be sewing all of the Disney princess character dresses, official and non official as well as some other iconic characters. Im a novice seamstress and I know this is a huge undertaking but I will have quite a bit of help, and hope to find even more help here on this site!

The first step (outside of casting for all the models) is location patterns that I can utilize for each of the characters. It doesn't have to be exact because I don't mind editing the patterns but if anyone has any input on good pattern options for any of the characters please leave a comment with the character and patterns you think could work!

Here is the ever so daunting list.

Alice - Alice in Wonderland
Anastasia - Anastasia
Ariel from The Little Mermaid (Wedding dress or Princess dress)
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty
Belle from Beauty and the Beast
Cinderella from Cinderella
Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Giselle from Enchanted
Jasmine from Aladdin
Kida from Atlantis (Making my own pattern most likely)
Mulan - Mulan
Pocahontas - Pocahontas (I was going to make my own pattern)
Rapunzel from Rapunzel/Tangled
Snow White from Snow White
Tiana from The Princess and the Frog

Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit!
Merida - Brave
Tinkerbell - Peter Pan
Meg - Hercules

Any input would be wonderful!

Jessica Rabbit you'll have to draft yourself, and either plan on using fashion tape or illusion netting.

I have never found ANYTHING remotely like that. The rest...I'll let someone else chime in.

Are you using all adult models? ('cause this will affect pattern suggestions)

Simplicity (I think- it's definitely Simplicity, McCalls or Butterick) has a line of Disney princess costume patterns.

Just FYI, Anastasia was not Disney. You might replace her with Megara/Meg from Hercules if you need another princess.

Several of the big pattern companies have patterns that would work. You need to have pictures of the character in front of you while you scan through them. There was a princess costume I read a review of recently (and can't find now) that came in both adult and kid sizes, and the reviewer said she felt it looked more like the Rapunzel dress than the "official" pattern did.

You also need to decide which dress for the ones who didn't look the same throughout their movie - Belle had several, and the blue or pink would be easier to do than the yellow!

For Alice, you just need a blue dress with a pinafore - a "Dorothy" costume would even work. Esmerelda could use any gypsy costume (you just need to choose the right fabrics), and Jasmine a harem outfit. The same for Mulan - fabric choice will make more of a difference than the actual pattern you end up with.

I'd also recommend Googling to find bloggers who've made similar costumes before. I do a little cosplay, and there really is almost no movie costume that SOMEONE on the Internet hasn't already made, and helpfully explained in a tutorial. :)

Hit up the Cosplay.com forums..Disney stuff falls into the anime convention scene these days. Lots of info on props, accessories and pattern suggestions.
Sounds like a fun few months ahead for you. : )
