How to Make a Snow White Dress

Updated on August 16, 2010

Snow White has long been a favorite character for many girls and women, and a Snow White dress is a popular choice for Halloween and costume parties. Making a Snow White dress is fairly straightforward, and you can do it in one day. Follow these steps to make a Snow White dress for yourself or a loved one.

1. Get the necessary materials.

To make a Snow White dress, you will need a sewing machine (you can do it by hand but it will be a significantly longer process!), thread, fitted blue t-shirt and yellow, blue, and red fabric. The amount of fabric you will need will depend on the size of the Snow White dress you are making. These supplies can be found in craft stores, thrift shops, clothing stores, fabric stores, costume stores, or Halloween supply stores.

2. Assemble the bodice of the dress.

This part can be a bit tricky, but with some patience will turn out right. Take the blue t-shirt and cut the sleeves off, making a straight cut line. Then measure and cut two pieces of the blue fabric that will fit loosely enough around the arms to serve as puffy sleeves. Next, cut red ½-inch stripes out of the red fabric. Sew these onto the blue pieces of fabric. For the cleanest look, turn the cut edges of the red fabric underneath and sew two straight stitch lines on either side of the red stripes, close to the edge.

3. Make the skirt

Cut out yellow material to make a long skirt. For maximum comfort, consider using an elastic waistband (you will need to add this to your supply list if you choose to do this) and sew the top of the yellow material to it by stretching out the elastic band, folding the yellow fabric over the top of it so that the band is covered, and sewing the fabric to it. That way, when you release the tension on the elastic band, your skirt will “scrunch” a bit around the waist and flare out more at the bottom. Sew the long edges of the yellow material together to form the completed skirt.

4. Assemble the dress.

Now you are ready to put the dress together. If you have not used an elastic waistband, sew the yellow skirt to the blue shirt/bodice (turn both pieces inside out to stitch, and then turn them right side out and iron the seam flat. If you used an elastic waistband, simply tuck the T-shirt into the skirt. Finally, sew the blue sleeves with the red stripes to the blue T-shirt where the original sleeves used to be, using the same method.
