Elsa from Frozen was my choice for Erin Hentzel’s latest challenge on Facebook: Avery Lane Patterns Sewing Group. We were required to use a pattern, either from one of her books or individual patterns she’s shared, to create a storybook (real or fictional), fairy tale, or fantasy character’s doll outfit.
I chose Elsa because I’d previously sewed an Elsa dress for a friend’s Granddaughter and still had plenty of left-over fabrics. In fact, that Elsa dress was my very first post here & you can easily find it by using “Elsa” in the search box @ top right on my opening page.
To create this Elsa dress I used Doll Dress Boutique’s Chapter Six Party Dresses for my front & back bodice pieces, as the front has a sweetheart neckline. I then used sleeve piece #45, lengthened to wrist length, and skirt piece #23, lengthened to ankle length. Mixing/matching pattern pieces is one of the things that makes Doll Dress Boutique a favorite pattern book of mine for creating many different looks. These were the only modifications I made pattern-wise per Erin’s challenge parameters.
