Kids Clothes Week: Day 1
Today marks the first day of KCW Fall 2014. While I have been working on this project for some time, today it is finally finished and that is worth celebrating!
This year has been all about Frozen. At first it was the music. “Let it Go” played everywhere, and all the time, followed by “Do You Want to Build a Snowman”. The latter was sung on repeat in our house for 2 weeks straight to prepare for the upcoming “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” musical audition.
All summer long we dreamed about Frozen.
As we approached Halloween, it was obvious that an Anna or Elsa costume would be in the works. After Cadence got the part as the “Little Red-Haired Girl” in the Charlie Brown play, we decided that Anna would be the perfect choice as we already had a red-haired wig.
Frozen Princess Anna Costume Review
The pattern for Princess Anna is from Joy2Sew and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result! While I made a few minor adjustments (as we all do!), this pattern was very well laid out and provided just enough instruction to make the sewing process comfortable.
Instead of painting on the design with the provided templates, I decided to use felt sheets and Heat n’ Bond. The skirt and cape I simply ironed on the designs, while the vest I opted to sew on for durability. I also added a scalloped skirt hem line in a contrasting blue and shortened the skirt by about 6 inches to show off the boots.
