May I introduce, our first Frozen inspired look, Princess Anna's Coronation gown.
I opted for a green crushed velvet instead of black for the bodice. I used a pattern for the sleeves and drafted the bodice on my own (gasp!) that's a big deal because I've never really done that before so I was worried I would completely screw it up. Fortunately, I didn't. The bodice detail is just freehand with some fabric paint. No freezer paper stenciling for me, I'm lazy.
The bodice and skirt are separate, not sure why I went that route but I like it and it's easier for her to put on by herself.
May I have this dance?
The skirt is pleated with box pleats but I was lazy and left out the pretty stenciling that the "real" Anna's dress had. That just looked like way too much work. Instead, I sewed a darker green ribbon down the inside of every pleat and called it good.
Here's the only problem with the bodice and skirt being separates. When there is serious jumping involved, there's a little bit of belly button peeking.
I'll leave you with a sneak peak of tomorrow's costume, take a wild guess at who it is. I know, it's a really difficult guess, it isn't obvious at all.
