Confession. This was supposed to be my week one winter wonderland look. I was planning on making Anna Kendrick's outfit from the opening scene of Pitch Perfect (and it would've been perfect). But this winter wonderland look was starting to look way too similar to Elsa's dress so I moved it to this week.
In case you haven't seen the movie, here's Elsa's dress:
The dress is a modification of the Bimaa Sweater pattern. I redrew the neckline and didn't add the cuffs to the sleeves. I then cut the bodice into a V and added a gathered skirt with tulle overlay. The bejeweled tulle just meets in the middle but doesn't connect, so that the beautiful stretch velvet fabric can be seen.
The top part of the dress is white stretch lace and metallic blue fabric. The bodice is a slight sweetheart with silver piping. I added a shiny brooch to complete the top.
The fun sparkly silver fringe at the waist reminded me of icicles. Perfect for a little ice queen!
I had so much fun making this dress that I've worked up a few more practical Frozen inspired dresses that I will show this week. I'll also share some Frozen inspired crafts. Might as well declare it Frozen week over here! In the meantime, make sure to check out the other movie inspired looks over here.
And a little sneak peek at tomorrow:
