BBB-princess cotton dresses?

My DD is going to BBB for the 2nd time. The first time, she wanted her beautiful Belle dress off the minute after she was done at BBB because it was so itchy and scratchy. She wants to go again but not with that kind of dress. Just wondering if anyone knows where I can find a Cotton princess dress?

Not cotton, but we have several nancy August dresses (nancyaugust.com) and they are beautiful! They are all satin and not itchy like the park ones. My very picky daughter loves hers! We have worn several to the parks and received tons of compliments!

I found cotton dresses on etsy too, they weren't big princess dresses they were sun dresses with disney fabric(one had princesses the other mickey mouse) and wore tiaras and my daughters were much happier in those.

If you really wanted for your dd to be able to choose a dress from BBB, the minnie mouse one is mostly cotton. I think the bodice is the only part that is polyester but it is quite stretchy. Overall, my dd found this dress to be very, very comfy!

We are taking 6 princess dresses this trip and each one was from the same ebay seller for $19.99 each. They are very high quality, beautifully made, and best of all - no itchy. The ones that have crinoline type material are lined so that there's nothing itchy at all.

I have actually bought things from 3 different people and been so happy with each one. This lady (sunshineangelalways on ebay) made DD the most beautiful Cinderella dress (it is listed in her store) and she was able to wear it for 2 trips. Super well made.

I also ordered skirts for DD and 2 of her friends. All 3 girls got so many compliments and DD loves wearing the skirts even just around they are nicely made and a fun twirl design. Her shop is on ebay (mamawing5). She also made a larger version for my tween niece so she can coordinate with the younger little girls.

Finally I just ordered minnie dresses to match for DD and my niece for our next trip. She did take a little longer to make them and get them shippedbut they turned out really cute. She is on etsy and Facebook

There are many options. I should say we didn't get anything from BBB.

My dd had a formal gown I ordered off ebay from 87sweetgirl. We used that for BBB and CRT. She just picked a formal gown in her favorite color. This was the 2nd dress we got from this seller. She wore a camisol under the top, but the bottom is lined with satin.



She also had a twirl skirt for touring and there are several sources for those on ebay and etsy. The one she is wearing is Ariel themed, but there are a lot of varieties.



She also had 2 pillow case dresses. I love those. She had one princess one she wore to Akershus and one Minnie Mouse one she wore to Chef Mickey's.

I love these because you can wear them with a turtleneck and pants when it is cooler or use it as a tunic as your child grows, so it can last for 3 years depending on the age of your child.

If you put pillowcase dress in the search box on either ebay or etsy, you should get some nice choices.



She mentioned that next time she might want a tutu skirt and a fun shirt, so I'm looking at those in various lengths for our next trip.

We have three dresses from http://www.littledressupshop.com/gir...-costumes.html and they are wonderful! They are all machine washable and made with comfy fabric.

I bought a Cinderella costume from the Disney store online before our first trip that my DD said itched. I used a cotton camisole/undershirt from Hanes under it and she said it wasn't itchy anymore. If you already have a costume you want to use and don't want to spend more- a pack of camisole costs about $6 from Target or Walmart.
