    Take Measurements:

    Take all measurements from your girl’s recent dress that best fits her as she will not let you take her measurement and you will end up in a mess. The measurements include:

    - Neckline
    - Shoulder length
    - Around the waist and hips
    - Sleeves length and width (the sleeves should be 1/4th in length)
    - Total length of the dress (starting from shoulders till knees)

    Crafting the Skirt:

    In order to craft the skirt, take into account all the measurements and make an outline on the fabric with the help of a chalk. The skirt will be less in width from the waist and more in width from below. Also keep in mind the length should not be more than the knees. Now cut it accordingly, considering seam allowance, and join the two layers with pins.

    Sew it accordingly and then give finishing touches to the raw edges on the neckline and in the lower part of the skirt.

    Take the white fabric and take into account the chest length and cut the apron with width less than the chest area and the total length slightly less than the skirt. The neck for the apron should be long in length than the skirt and must be square in shape. In the end give finishing touches along the raw edges of the apron and your costume is ready.
