We love the newest Disney movie Frozen (if you couldn't tell). I think it really hits home with the girls because it features two sisters. Though their favorite duo in the movie is actually Olaf and Sven (the snowman and reindeer). You've already seen the costume-y Elsa dress I created - but I also made them a couple practical dresses for everyday wear out and about or to school. Both dresses are peasant style. They're starting to dress themselves so I'm making more easy on/off outfits lately.
Let's start with Elsa, the beautiful snow queen struggling with her powers.
With ombre chevron bodice and icicle-like trim…
that's accented with a shimmering snowflake.
This is just one way to interpret Elsa's dress into practical wear. I've had a hard time restraining myself from making every design that's been jumping into my head. Probably because these are my favorite colors.
And then there's the sweet Princess Anna. The fearless girl who never gives up on her sister.
Her dress features an interesting vine and flower design that I replicated with dimensional paint (if only I had an embroidery machine!). You can get the same look with a stencil and paint or appliquéing fabric scraps, but I wanted some texture to the bodice.
Anna wears a distintive outfit while off on her adventure to reach her sister. Here's a sneak peek. I'll be showcasing it tomorrow and including a tutorial, so make sure to check back!
