Princess Anna Inspired Costume



In addition to the Snow White costume, I also sewed up a winter princess costume for our princess meet and greet.  We had the very best Elsa and Anna, and they deserved to have something pretty to wear.  



For Anna's costume I ended up ordering the aqua blouse online, and that saved me quite a bit of time.  The vest and skirt were self drafted patterns.  The vest was a bit of an adventure.  I've decided that I really need to invest in an adjustable dress form, it would have made the pattern making process much easier.  I used black satin, gold double fold bias tape, and iron on flocked vinyl, from Expressions Vinyl,  for the vest details. My silhouette cameo saved me so much time, cutting out the intricate designs for me.



I also designed some floral details for the skirt, once again, vinyl and my silhouette did all of the work.  You can see that I didn't do the scallop detail on the skirt, I just didn't have it in me.  


Better than the dress, was the princess wearing it.  Both "Elsa" and "Anna" did a wonderful job, and were so adorable and sweet.  There were lots of star struck little princesses.



I didn't make Elsa's dress, I ordered it.  Yep, I broke down and bought a dress.  I'd originally planned on making it myself, but after pricing fabric, I just bought it.  Her crown, however, was all me.

Love Anna's dress!!! I just ordered an Elsa dress for Ansley because it was cheaper than the fabric too.
