Snow White goes for a run...

I'm excited to be heading down to DisneyWorld this weekend to run Disney's Princess Half Marathon!  To get into the festivities, I decided I needed to run in a costume of sorts... so I decided on Snow White.  Not a full-on Snow White costume, but more of a Snow White goes running theme.  I like to be comfortable, especially for long distances, so that was my top priority overall.

I bought a yellow SparkleSkirt online, because I didn't want to mess with the shorts... spandex shorts are perfect to prevent chaffing.  SparkleSkirts has a great reputation, so I let them handle that.  :)

For the top, I purchased a navy-colored tank top on the cheap from Eastbay, and bought some white, red, and blue athletic fabrics (in tiny quantities) from  My friends at Fabrika Fine Fabrics helped me come up with a plan/pattern for the collar and sleeves.  I did a cap sleeve so I wouldn't have a tight armhole or elastic around my arm, allowing for freedom of movement.  I free-hand cut the red accents, sewed them to the sleeve (I serged the sleeve edges), and did a simple gather stitch to give them a little poof.  I did a set-in sleeve, and it was sooooo easy.  For the collar, I added interfacing for stiffness, sewed right sides together, pressed right side out, stay-stitched and sewed it directly inside the collar seams on the tank top.


All in all, it only took me about an hour or so.  SUPER easy, and I LOVE the aesthetic result.  I can't wait to wear it!  And RUN in it!  :)
