Princes costumes have always been popular during Halloween and you can purchase these dress at any Halloween party store. However, if you want to be creative this Halloween, you might want to make your own unique princess costume.
If you want to make a basic princess costume without making the design too complicated, then all you need is a child-size apron for the top portion and a skirt for the bottom portion. You won't need to do any sewing or cutting here either, so it is safe for your small child to participate in.
The great thing about using an apron is that it has a loop on the top which goes around the back of the child's neck. This means they can simply wear the dress over their shirt and pants with ease. You will want the shirt to be the same color as the apron and skirt. For example, if you're designing a white princess dress, then have your daughter wear a white long sleeve shirt and white skirt.
The fun part comes with adding accessories to the apron and skirt, such as ribbons, glitter, and whatever else you want to use to make the dress sparkle. Another idea is to have your child wear a sleeveless upper portion while wearing long satin gloves that stretch up to their elbows.
There are lots of ways you can design a princess costume. It simply depends on what look you want to have for your child. Just experiment with various designs with your child and the two of you can have fun creating an original costume together.
