I would recommend this for intermediate dressmakers. I will post a pic of the finished dress on my 5-year old.
Also, as other reviewers have stated, this skirt is ridiculously long. My daughter is tall for her age and I still shortened the pattern by 4 inches. The best advice that I can give is to alter & shorten the pattern before you ever cut the fabric. Otherwise you have to shorten the overskirt, the skirt and the lining individually.
Finally, I ended up deviating from the pattern with respect to the sleeves. I didn't like the straight sleeve so I added a ruffled sleeve instead.
While you can create an adorable princess dress with this pattern, I wouldn't recommend it for beginners at all. This was very time consuming and I had a to make a lot of alterations and pattern deviations. I don't know if Simplicity was just in a hurry to get the pattern out in time for the holiday season, but I really hope they consider revision on this one.
All in all, my daughter does not care that it's "spot on" Disney's Tangled Rapunzel, so it does the job. I do wish the sizing was a little more consistent.
Rapunzel from Disney's "Tangled"
Childs, sizes 3-8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I dislike many things about this pattern. Firstly, the coloration on the picture and recommendations for different colored fabrics for the bodice and underskirt. In the movie, Rapunzel's dress is all one color, except for trim and the inset on the skirt. Accordingly, I bought only one color of fabric, rather than two.
Secondly, in the movie, the skirt of the dress is one layer, and does not have an overskirt. This seems unnecessary.
Thirdly, the skirt on this dress is much too full. There are 3 panels to the skirt, (piece 8 is the underskirt front, and piece 9 is cut twice for the sides and back.) It's gathered almost as closely as possible. You could cheerfully leave out one panel (having only the piece 8 for the front, and one piece 9 for the back.) and it would more closely resemble the dress from the movie, though slightly fuller. To do this, simply cut piece 9 so it's NOT on a fold, to get the back seam which is necessary for installation of the zipper. Sewing all the layers of closely-gathered fabric is rather difficult, so it would be much easier without that extra panel. In an effort to create the narrower skirt as seen in the movie
Fourthly, It's also obscenely long. I've sewn this dress for my daughter's 4th birthday, which is coming up. She's very tall for her age, being the height of most 7 year olds. I cut out the dress in a size 8 so she would have some room to grow into it.Read more ›

Such a cute dress and the patter was really easy to follow. I adapted a bit to accommodate for a Halloween costume but the pattern was easy to follow and exactly like you'd expect.Published 6 months ago by Tess Gus
Just cut this pattern out. I made adjustments so that the dress will look more like Rapunzel's dress does in the movie. The pattern instructions are easy to understand.Published 20 months ago by CB
