Dress your little Rapunzel in my tiny version of the gown from Disney's wonderful Tangled! See Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/AriaCouture for more photos of this gown and many others I've made. I can't link to my personal webpage, but I can link you to Facebook!

This is a semi-deluxe version of the gown, minus the embroidery, and includes the hair flower. My goal with all my gowns is for them to never look costumey. I strive for a substantial garment that looks rich and perfect, unlike anything you can find off the rack.

This dress is three pieces (in the film, her gown would have been four pieces, a camisole that buttons up the back, the outer bodice that laces up the front, a lace-trimmed slip, and the skirt). I combined the camisole and bodice and made back-lacing with longer sleeves and longer skirt so that this dress can grow with the wearer. A separate camisole would be one size, and let's face it, when you're spending $450 on a dress for a child, you want your money's worth out of wear! I made this one for my daughter and am out the cost of the supplies, and still want enough wear for it to be worth the money and time, and I know you probably do too. This is a dress meant to be played in! In the third photo, you can see water spots on her skirt from puddle-stomping! It cleans easily, so don't worry about evidence of fun! (That photo also makes the skirt look much more vibrant than it is. The first photo is truest to color. Swatches available on request.)

The neckline, arms, waist, and solid fabric of the skirt, have pink satin cord. The wrists, neckline, and skirt hem have white lace, and the waist has pink lace. I couldn't find suitable pink lace, so dyed some of the white. The upper sleeves have six yards of ribbon between them. That took a surprisingly long time to do.

The bodice and front skirt panel are a rose brocade, and the bodice inset, upper sleeves (under the ribbon), modesty panel, and rest of the skirt are matching solid bridal satins. The lower sleeves are doubled tulle. The bodice is lightly boned WITH FILM-CORRECT SEAMS and is entirely lined in light purple cotton except for the lower sleeves. My thinking is why just finish inside seams, especially on bodices, especially if they can be hidden entirely and with a nice, soft cotton lining?

If you want the camisole and bodice separate, I'll gladly do that too but the camisole won't be adjustable, so the options are to make it fit perfectly now, or for it to be obviously a bit larger for growth room. The other trick is that if it's made larger, then you'll either need to lace the bodice looser so the bottom lines up with the camisole's curve. What I like about the combined look is that is looks like a perfect fit, and will continue to look like a perfect fit for quite some time to come, so for my daughter, I was willing to sacrifice the peak of camisole at the back.

As I said, this dress was made to grow with her. So the back laces over a modesty panel (so no skin will show) that matches the front inset. The skirt has a waistband that, at its smallest, if her current waist measurement. I inserted a godet where a zipper would usually go, and extended one side of the waist band a few inches. On the extended tab, I placed a few buttons so that it can be buttoned on the one most comfortable. The skirt and bodice have hooks and eyes to keep the bodice and skirt from separating when a little one decides to jump around and roll on the ground!

A flower in your choice of color will be included, and you can choose French clip, snap clip, or alligator clip. Rapunzel has a big blue one on the back of her head in the film, but she had so many that anything goes!

SIZING: After you decide to make a purchase, I will contact you with measurements I need to make the gown. ALL gowns will involve a contract with measurements, ship-by date, shipping address, etc., for your protection as well as mine.

TIME: Please contact me. When my schedule is more open, this item can be made in as few as a couple weeks, and sometimes as long as twelve weeks. I am never in a position where I have no commissions scheduled. So please contact me PRIOR to purchase for a date, which will go into the above-mentioned contract.

SHIPPING INFORMATION: I DO ship internationally. Please convo me directly for international rates. All shipping is by UPS.

PAYMENT INFORMATION: I accept Square for payments. An invoice will be sent to you from from Square Invoicing with payment instructions, AFTER all sizing information is received and details are agreed upon. While payment isn't made the very second you order, it is much more secure than Paypal. By paying with a credit or debit card, you are protected and still have the right to file disputes, only with your card-issuer directly. Paypal also requires that good be delivered within 21 days, which is simply not alway possible when something is custom-made and will take longer than 21 days to produce and ship.

When purchasing, please check the "other" checkbox and an invoice will be sent directly to you. Thank you!
