Disney’s Frozen is delightful for many reasons, and one of them is the costumes. Elsa’s icy blue dress gets a lot of attention, but Anna’s coronation day gown is nothing to sneeze at. Maggie made a version of the dress for her little sister and pulled the costume together in just a week! She used black corduroy for Anna’s bodice and cotton fabric for the skirt. She painted the embroidered embellishments on each panel of the skirt and the bodice. Here are the steps she took for the sleeves and necklace:
Lastly I had to do the decorative cap sleeves and her necklace. The sleeves were easy enough, just cut out wide strips and gather them, I eyeballed the placement and had to wait to try it on my sister the next day. The necklace was a simple green pendant on a black ribbon. So I grabbed some scraps of Wonderflex and cut out the shape I wanted, heated three layers together and painted to the color I wanted. Did a clear coat over the top and threaded a ribbon through. Her hair comb I bought at Jo-Ann’s and made a decorative top that kinda looks like it does in the movie. Well, has the same basic shape, and pained it gold.
