In the summer of 2015, I was asked to make a Cinderella transformation dress, and the request literally transformed my life. I’ve since created two transforming dresses for two different productions of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and have just recently finished a complete suite of Ella’s costumes (Act I and II), which are available for rent.
To see my second dress in action, look below!
How to Make a Cinderella Transformation Dress
I would love to help you with your dress! After making three versions of this costume, I know all about the challenges that arise when taking this project on. However, while the transformation is very complex, a little guidance is all most people need to make it successful! I currently offer DIY transformation dress consultations and hope to eventually publish a tutorial and pattern.
Personalized Costume Consultation
Every show is different, and I can help anyone with basic sewing knowledge and a little imagination create a transformation dress to fit their production. I can provide you unlimited correspondence, Q&A, recommendations, and the love and encouragement you need to conquer this dress for yourself as part of an online consultation. A little investment in the beginning of the process will save you plenty of tears later on…take it from me!
My $200 Tranformation Consultation Includes:
- Access to almost three years worth of research
- A behind the scenes look at my costumes, including photos of how they are rigged for transformation
- Unlimited Q&A via email, phone, or Skype
- Lifelong friendship with me, the only other person who really understand what you’re going through! (Just kidding, you’re not alone!)
If you are interested in a consultation or have questions, please contact me below and we will chat.
If you would prefer personal assistance, I’m also available to travel to help you construct your dress for a daily fee and paid travel expenses. Please contact me below with your production date and location for a quote.
Cinderella Transformation Dress Pattern
My goal is to eventually create a Transformation Dress Sewing Pattern, complete with video tutorials. But while I make my own patterns all the time, I am not a trained pattern maker and it will take some time to publish a quality completed pattern, and properly organize an effective tutorial. If you are interested, please let me know and I will be sure to let you know when I finally have them finished.
