Pattern for casual Belle costume?

I know there's not a REAL pattern for the casual blue outfit that Belle wears in the Disney movie "Beauty And The Beast", but I know quite a few of you have made the dress and improvised with other patterns. My question to you is: what patterns did you work with to accomplish this? I'd like to make the outfit for this Halloween's festivities, but I have no idea where to begin without the pattern.

Thank you!

Well I've never made the costume, but I think the simplicity wizard of Oz Pattern would work.

You'd just have to edit the sleeves a bit.

Actually if you go to a Fabric place and check through there catelogs at the counter they have a halloween section for costumes and I had actually seen patterns for Belle - It is a popular disney movie after all! And for adults sizes too.

Though if they don't have it, as said above you can find costumes in relation to Belle like that example. If you want also, since the children's sized version is popular among little girls, you can always find a costume and copy the patterns from it (Of course, making them bigger for your size lol) It's what I did for my first sewn outfit, though it was regular sized, I just followed the patterns from it, and without the need to actually pull it together - I would just study the detail and where everything was sewn and make a pattern from that for the new costume.

^ They only sell patterns for the gold ballgown, unforunately. I'm making the blue town dress. Thanks though.

And I was considering the Dorothy pattern (I was looking at my Dorothy costume and realized that it was similiar), I might be able to do something with that one as a last resort, thanks!

Any other suggestions from folks who have made the costume?

Blarg. I cannot say I looked too hard but, especially with basic costumes, branch out into more than just the costume section of the pattern book. You will be surprised what all you can find.
I did not bother looking for a shirt and the apron is easy to make without a pattern or with a drafted pattern. Lengthen and these are two patterns I would consider using if I were to make her dress (in order of preference):

oh my goodness gracious that first pattern is amazing o.O

But yeah! Just in general, looking through patterns that aren't Halloween costumes is great... you never know what you'll find x3

Try this pattern
http://www.simplicity.com/assets/5582/5582.jpg

If you take the pattern for the dress in the largest picture and just make the skirt full length instead of knee (just copy the underskirt pattern) all you would need is a white button up shirt and a white apron

the pattern can be found here

Hey, I know this is an old thread, and none of the links work anymore...but I was wondering where one could find something for the blue dress of Belle's.

Sans slit, you can lengthen or widen the skirt.

to make my Belle's Blue Dress is used Simplicity 2539 (A) the Jumper is perfect and really easy to make.
I forget what I used to make my top. it was another from simplicity that had a 'scarf' attachment which tied in a bow in the front. If you cut off the bow and sew it together it makes her top almost perfect.

Again, I know this is old, but does anyone know of a good pattern to use for Belle's gold dress?

Thanks

Google is your friend. North American commercial pattern makers with costume lines are:

www.simplicity.com
www.butterick.com
www.mccall.com

These brands all carry costume patterns. All you have to do is look at what they have available. I don't see why this is so hard for people. This board is not here to get other people to do the work for you =/
