Does anyone know where I can find the Giselle Blue/Green curtain dress for grown-ups? Even a pattern I can give to a seamstess maybe?

I know someone who made one for her daughter, we are trying to talk her into making a pattern for us!

It is here: http://s204.photobucket.com/albums/bb256/disboutique/Princess%20and%20Prince%20Outfits/Giselle/?action=view&current=DSCF2236.jpg

It's a Regency-style Empire round gown with a visible underskirt. All of the major pattern companies have a similar gown in their pattern catalogs in the costume section. It just needs to be made with two layers of skirt, one split down the front. Any seamstress worth the money could copy it easily.

We are going in October for the not so scary Halloween pary, and I really want the dress for that!!!

So far I am really having a hard time finding a fabric. The closest I can find are in the asian floral brocades. They have a similar look, and the weight should work really well. Has anyone found anything better?????

For a pattern, I found the Butterick 6630. It has nice lines, puffy sleeves, an outer split gown and a separate gown you can use for the under skirt. Other than that the only tweeking it will need is to change the bust line to a sweatheart.

you might want to head over to the DisBoutique board and ask Teresa where she found the fabric for her dress

Scroll down on this link and you'll see her dress.

Oh, that dress is so cute!! I can't believe the CM was so rude!!! I really want to find something with the embroidered look. The best I have found so far is from pearlriver.com They have one called Bamboo Floral Brocade that actually comes in aqua. I have to order a swatch next week.

One of my girlfriends saw the new curtains I just put up in my bedroom and said - just use those (they are a pale aqua grey, with floral emb)!

115 Days to Disney - YAY!!!

It's been a year and I'm still no closer to my dress, just wondering if anyone has had any recent luck!

If you Pm Teresajoy she may be able to make you one. She is from the Disboutique board and a wonderful seamstress (and a very sweet lady). She made one for her dd and is adorable (as is her sweet dd)

In total after fabric and mailing everything (I picked/purchased/sent the fabric and ribbons to her) plus her labor it was close to $150. 7mths later it still fits DD and she wears it all the time so IMO it was money well spent. DD plans to bring it back to WDW again with us this coming Dec too as long as it still fits her. And every CM and princess knew exactly who she was dressed as so that was completely awesome. :thumbsup2

Teresajoy,

What would you need to make it for me? How much time would you need also? I would be forever in your debt, I love that dress so much.

I got the fabric at Jo-ann Fabrics. But that was way back in '08 so I doubt there would be the same fabric there now. It is a rather heavy fabric, not cotton like softness, more curtain-like.
