Honestly? I just wanted to draw those damn slashed sleeves. I want them SO BAD.

Unlike the aforementioned Little Mermaid, Snow White's time period is pretty easy to pinpoint in 16th century Germany. Not that the film is accurate, but the clues are there- I took a wide swath from about 1500-1530 to come up with something that still maintained the spirit of the original design.

Snow White is not one of my favourite Disney princesses, but this dress is so much more detailed than in the movie. Also, most people don't really know this but Snow White is supposed to be like 14 in her movie so the body shape is a little weird. But I'm sure you either didn't know that or just stylized her.

*laughing so hard* Simplicity pattern 1728 totally referenced this.  Apple and all.

they're actually referencing the movie Mirror Mirror- the apple pose existed long before I came around to it. :)

Now, Disney, that's how you draw a princess's dress. *adds to favorites*

it's awesome how you manages to keep her trademark stretched-arm posing! Snow is the best princess ever (though I also adore Aurora and Cinderella) and I'm glad she got a dress worthy of her awesomeness.

I think in the film, she didn't have slashed sleeves, but red shapes stitched on to blue short puffy sleeves.

You are missing the point of this series I think

Actually maybe they were slashed sleeves in the film, it's just the way they slashed them gave them the shape the red parts have in the film.

I was just letting you know I think they weren't originally slashed sleeves, but I really like your re-interpration of them as slashed sleeves. This is one of yours is a particularly beautiful design.
