As many others I hopped on the Frozen train wanting to create an Elsa dress for a child. The only thing was that all the tutorials I saw online were kind of unsatisfying for me so that I just did my own version, with flaws, not perfect, but hey it's handmade :)
First I asked for the shirt size of the child and bought a plain white shirt at H&M. Then I measured the girl, while she was wearing the shirt (yes, this is very difficult :D) and wrote down all the sizes she has so that I know how much fabric I need.
I ordered all my fabric on buttinette, an online shop for creative supplies. Any other side is probably just as fine :)
For the upper part (around the shirt) I used fabric with sequins (note: the sequins were coming off while making the dress already, so it's probably impossible to wash that dress, unfortunately).
The lower part, i.e. the skirt was made of blue satin which was quite heavy.
Finally, the cape was made of organza.
For the fabric with sequins I simply sewed 2 pieces to the already existing shirt.
According to the measurements I did on the girl, I cut and sewed the satin to the shirt and finally added the organza to the back of the dress. Remember that because of the weight of the fabric, it could be possible that the shirt is lengthened making the whole dress long than you thought. I had to whip it again, too. But in the end, for my first clothing project, I was quite proud :)
Let me know what you think and maybe show me your creations in the comments :)
