How to Make a Homemade Disney Belle Costume


A Disney Belle costume can be used for Halloween or dress up, and can be sewn or crafted from store-bought items. The Disney Belle costume from "Beauty and the Beast" consists of an elegant, full-length, off-the-shoulder yellow ball gown, complete with long yellow gloves and a bright yellow hair ribbon.

Things You'll Need

  • Yellow dress or dress pattern
  • Yellow fabric (if using dress pattern)
  • Yellow gloves
  • Yellow ribbon
  • Sewing machine, thread, needle (if using pattern)
  • Curling Iron
  • Hair spray
  • Pink lipstick
  • Pink blush
  • Sewing tacks

Putting the Costume Together

  • Sew the belle costume gown using pattern directions to guide you. Or buy a yellow gown from a store or consignment shop.

  • Sew yellow gloves using a pattern, purchase online or from a store. You may need to dye white gloves.

  • Curl the hair into loose curls using a curling iron. Secure with hairspray.

  • Tie a yellow ribbon around the top of the head in place of a headband.

  • Apply pink lipstick and blush to complete the look.

Sewing the Dress

  • If sewing your dress from scratch, lay out the pattern and cut out the pieces of fabric.

  • Secure the pieces using sewing tacks.

  • Sew the top part of the dress (bodice) first.

  • Sew the edges of the skirt.

  • If you desire the skirt to include ruching, thread portions of the skirt vertically. Space the ruches evenly apart and tighten/gather before knotting.

  • Sew together the bodice and skirt.

  • Sew the sleeves and attach to the bodice.
