Let It Go!

 



McCall's 7000 is clearly an unofficial version of the beloved characters from Frozen, Anna and Elsa. Gracie wanted to be Elsa for Halloween and I thought it would be fun to be Anna. I haven't made the Anna costume yet, but Elsa was fun to sew.

The fabrics are all from Joann (avoid the nasty costume satin - I always go for the bridal stuff). French seams and narrow double-turned hems will make the sheer parts look great.

I cut a 7-8 for length, but took in the bodice a lot. Clearly, they sized this for moms who sew once a year for Halloween not to have fit issues, but Elsa is a sleek character and does not need a billowy bodice.

The crown was a Disney store purchase.

  1. Adorable! My daughter is leaning towards being Elsa at the moment (we bought the Simplicity version of the pattern), so this will be very helpful.

  2. Well, you're sure on top of the Halloween sewing! And good idea to buy bridal satin.

    The costume is lovely!
