Low/No Cost DIY Disneyland Clothing

E & J waiting to go on the Finding Nemo ride at Disneyland
We recently took a trip to Disneyland for three days and I wanted to dress the girls in matching Disney attire.  After searching around the internet I realized that I didn't want to pay what people were asking for the personalized homemade outfits (that honestly, looked like homemade outfits. I knew I had enough skills to make simple personalized t-shirts and dresses.

The first set I did I actually bought personalized vinyl iron ons on Etsy (Miss Morgan Designs) for $14 and bought t-shirts at Old Navy ($8) and Target ($6): 

Total cost: $28
E with Jasmine and Aladdin (J wouldn't go near anyone in costume)
The shirts were darling, but once I made them I realized I could do pretty much the exact same thing with fusible web.

So the next set I made myself.  I found a of siloutte of Cinderella using google and traced it onto Steam A Seam. After pressing it onto black fabric, I cut it out and ironed it on shirts the girls already had.
I had some iron on letters in my stash which I used to monogram E's shirt.  
Total cost: ZERO

I then decided I want to do something other than shirts, so for the third day I decided to go with pillowcase dresses.  I knew I could sew them fast (I was doing this project the NIGHT BEFORE we left for Disney.)

I had previously let the girls pick out a yard of fabric when it was on sale at JoAnn's for $2.99. E picked pink Cinderella and Belle and J picked purple Princess and the Frog.  I had to buy purple grosgrain ribbon for J's dress ($3) but I had black on hand for E's.
I used this tutorial from SewLikeMyMom that I found on Pinterest. When the pin described it as "the easiest pillowcase dress ever" they weren't kidding.  It took mess less than 15 minutes to make each dress.
To personalize the dresses I traced letters onto Steam A Seam the same way I did the silhouettes.
Total Cost: $9
I originally had paired the dresses with long sleeve shirts, but the weather was so great the eneded up wearing the dresses without a shirt underneath:

They had a great time and I actually got a couple compliments on the dresses from perfect strangers! 

Not bad considering I spent an average of $6 per outfit!

  1. Ooh! I really like the silhouette shirts.

  2. Love this especially the Cinderella one. Wonder if I could attempt something like this for our upcoming trip...

  3. Love it. I bought a princess sheet at the goodwill for $1.19 and I am trying to decide if I will make a pillow case dress out of it or if I need to line it first. Talk about cheap outfits.
    I love the stencil idea, might steal that one. I love that you personalized them. You did a great job on the letters! Definitely looks store bought. I thought you at least bought the letters.

  4. I love, love, love fusible web! Makes me want to walk around and laugh at people's expensive shirts!
