My 3.5 year old daughter wanted to be a princess for Halloween.  OK! I said, then all common sense flew out the door and I proceeded with making her an entire, (mostly) historically accurate 18th century Robe a la Francaise, using nothing but thrifted bed sheets for the fabric.

If you’re interested in the nitty gritty details - I’ve made a blog post detailing the construction process

ETA: I’ve had a number of the same questions asked about this costume - so I whipped up a quick Q&A post that you can read on my blog.
