Anna Frozen costume advice.
Hi all

I am a total novice at making costumes and even though I realise I may live to regret this I promised to make my daughter an Anna costume for her primary school leaving party. I would really love some advice about what the best fabrics to use for the cape, dress and shirt she wears when she travels to find Elsa would be. She has eczema so I need to be mindful of that when making it so mainly natural fibres like cotton are needed and this is making trying to work it all out even more of a minefield.

I would really appreciate any help and advice because I am getting shorter and shorter on time, thanks so much everyone x

This looks promising =) It's not very expensive and it gives fabric suggestions.

I can't help with fabric choices, but this blog might be some help with the making.

Andrea Schewe is a pattern designer for Simplicity and she's currently blogging her progress making simple versions of three dresses from Frozen from existing patterns, including the one you want to make.

You can’t have a complete costume without a great makeup and you should try a makeup mixing palette for this challenge because you can get the colors you want that will match up with the costume theme so be careful this is an important aspect.
