Ariel's Pink Ball Gown

My DD(8) wants to be Ariel for Halloween this year. But, she wants to be Ariel in the pink ball gown that she wore for dinner at Prince Ericís Castle. I have scoured the internet trying to find a costume, dress, or anything that looks like Arielís pink ball gown at a reasonable price. I found one dress at party city for $70 that might work if I canít find anything better, but I am still hoping to find something that looks closer to Arielís actual gown. I donít know how to sew, and I am not very crafty, so making one myself is somewhat out of the question.

Iíve tried the disneystore.com, and they donít have the pink ball gown. Iíve seen several handmade dresses that would be perfect on places like etsy.com and google shopping, but they are all $200 or more. Ideally, I would like to not spend more than $80 - $100.

Does anyone know where I can get a dress that looks really close to Arielís pink ball gown for a reasonable price or how I could make one without a lot of craft/sewing knowledge?

Thanks everyone for your help.

Just wanted to add, if you could find anyone that sews, I would start with the Snow White pattern. I think it could be easily altered to resemble the pink dress.

If you are looking for a ready-made dress to modify, concentrate on the puffy sleeves and full skirt in a pink dress. The white accents would be easy to add and you could split and curve the skirt and add a white skirt underneath, maybe from a wedding dress costume or something similar.

Aunt BJ, thank you so much. That dress is perfect, and a much better price than what I was expecting to spend. I didn't find it on Etsy when I searched because I was typing Ariel's Pink Ball Gown. I cannot tell you how much this means to me. My little princess is going to be so happy. Again, I cannot thank you enough. You have made my day.
