"A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep."-Cinderella
The beautiful tale of Cinderella weaves a special place into the heart of girls. It takes an ordinary girl who dares to dream and follow her dreams and puts her into a magical world of princes and princesses and romance. Little princesses love to dance around in dress up clothes and pretend to be a princess in their Cinderella dresses, courting the Prince.
The Disney princess dresses are the ones that little girls relate to the most. After all, the Disney princess dresses are modeled to look precisely like the movie characters that the girls love.
There are a few things to consider when picking out a Cinderella dress. As with all dress up clothes, you want to look for something durable. Make sure seams will last, and look secure. Some Cinderella dresses have a sheer top layer, often with silver designs. Feel the fabric and check for tears, and make sure the fabric feels sturdy. Most designers of dress up clothes take durability into consideration when making their clothes, so you shouldn't need to worry too much if the overall dress looks like it will last!
Fabric choice is essential in choosing any dress up clothes, and particularly with something as fancy as a Cinderella dress! As cautious as your little princess might be, there's a good chance that sometime there will be a spill on the dress. The tag of the dress should state the washing requirements of the garment. Little princesses need to be in a clean dress to feel pretty! Certain fabrics, like fine silk, are more prone to stains than others. Certain dress fabrics are woven tightly so that water seems to roll right off of the fabric. These fabrics are great for dress up clothes!
The best Cinderella dresses are ones that little girls love! Unless the dress is a surprise, take the lucky little girl shopping with you. Since there are a few stylistic changes in each Cinderella dress, she may prefer one design over the next. See what she likes best and go with it! The day spent shopping and picking out her very own princess dress will be one that she will cherish forever.
Like most dress up clothes, Cinderella dresses aren't just about the dress. The accessories are also essential! Cinderella crowns her up-do with a blue headband and a black fitted necklace. The necklace is an easy one to make at home, just use a simple black ribbon and tie it loosely around the neck. It really completes the outfit! Cinderella also wears large white earrings, but for dress up clothes any clip on earring will work.
The most important accessory for a Cinderella dress is the glass slippers! Disney makes a pair of clear light up shoes to complete the outfit. If you don't want to purchase the light up shoes, put a special pair of dress up shoes in with the dress. A great pair would be a pale colored one (like white or light blue) with a heel and some ornamentation on it. Even if these are Mom's worn out old shoes, the ornamentation on them and the stigma that they are glass slippers will make them precious in your little girl's eyes.
So pull out the shoes and accessories and find a durable pale blue princess dress and, "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!" Your little one will have hours of fun in perfect Cinderella dress.
