It is no secret in my house that my kids are OBSESSED with Frozen (if the Olaf Valentines didn't give that away).
So for "Dress like a Disney character" day at school, my 8 year old was adamant that she get to be Elsa in her "Let it Go" dress. Disney does make a commerical Elsa costume, but good luck getting your hands on one! They have been sold out for a while.
The next best thing? Make one myself.
Since there isn't a commercial pattern available anywhere yet, I knew I would have to modify a traditional dress to get the same look. I wanted it to have a seperate bodic (since that part would need to have sequins), a sweetheart neckline and a simple floor length skirt.
The closest thing I could find was BurdaKids Pattern 9499:
The neckline was perfect and so was the shape of the skirt.. it DID need to be longer, but that would be easy.
