Picture of DIY Pocahontas Costume

This is a quick DIY on how to make a Pocahontas cosplay dress. My sewing skills are mediocre at best so this wasn't too complicated.

What you need:

White fabric (I used an old bed sheet)

Brown fabric (I used an old suede pillow case)

Tape Measure

Sewing machine


A dress to measure up against for size




Chalk or pencil


Step 1: Brown Fabric

I have always loved the idea of cosplay – especially as Pocahontas and when I recently came across a brown felt seeming pillow case cover, I decided that the time was finally right to create my outfit

Hey, this turned out really nice!

Despite my username, I'm not a great sewist . . I make costumes for my kids, and this is pretty much how I do it. I just jump in and go for it, and make adjustments along they way.

Nicely done, and a very good first instructable too! Welcome to instructables, it's a fun place to share your projects :)

Thank you so much seamster :)
I think jumping right in is the best way.
I would love to see what you make for your kids. I will check your work out.
And thank you for the lovely welcome. I hope I can create many more items in the future!
