My daughter's first--and only, so far--movie theater experience was "Frozen", so she was pretty excited when I had a chance to make her a Princess Anna dress.
|She was super excited about this one :)|
Although she's not the princess with "freezing powers" (as my daughter calls Elsa), she was still a big hit. The pattern includes the long sleeve peasant shirt that's worn under the zip-up, sleeveless dress. There's a pointed bodice and instructions for including the gold trim and the floral detail on the front. There's even a template included if you want to paint the bodice design.
|Don't be afraid of zippers--the|
instructions make it super easy!
Danielle decided to have a growth spurt and not tell me, so this is the size 4 when she's actually a size 5 length now. As much as I measure my kids, you think I would have caught this beforehand!
I decided to take a couple of designs from Embroidery Library and work some Embird magic to cut and paste different bits together to make my own Anna design. I didn't feel comfortable purchasing from the site that offers "Mr. Mouse" and other knock-off designs. It was a lot of fun to put the embroidery together and I think it turned out really nice.
|The embroidery placement could have been a little lower though|
I was really pleased with this dress and bought some more fabric to make my daughter a dress in the right length. This version went to a dear friend of ours, and her older sister got the Elsa dress which I will share with you next time. (Maybe tomorrow--we're supposed to have snow here in the South which is funny because I am posting about a movie called "Frozen"!)
