Anna (Coronation gown) - Frozen

In Progress




If I don't hate myself after all of the embroidery on the winter gown...(no promises)

Still deciding whether to embroid or paint the skirt but there will defiantly be a skirt and peticoat(s)
I keep watching frozen imagining dancing to love is an open door in this dress, I can't wait!

I have looked at lots of reference images of this dress from the film and have decided that I am not going to embroid the dress patterns. For her winter gown it is clear where the embroidery is because of the extreme amounts of detail they put in to show it. However I can't find the details on this dress which suggests that it isn't to me. I know from around that time it would more likely be embroidary but I also think that screen printing would be suitable so that is what I am going to try (hopefully it'll go well). The corset will still be embroided though

5th October 2014

Beginning to sew the skirt!

After spending the whole summer sewing the panels I have FINALLY been able to start putting them together (although I still have two left to finish). Anyway next I'll be top stitching the new seams and orienting for the rest of my life. I really need to get started on the petitcoat and finish the corset! :(

Also I spent the whole of Thursday redying the pleat panels darker because I really wasn't happy with how they looked. If anyone ever thinks about using idye dyes I suggestbeing really thorough when checking the colours: they're are not clear at all!!

2nd September 2014

First panel complete!

FINALY! It's taken me the whole summer but I've actually finished one of the panels! Yay!! Only 9 more to go! Honestly I thought I'd would have had the whole thing complete mouhpnths ago but I haven't even started the petitcoat yet xp

Shoes done

I haven't updated this costume in a while but I have been working on it almost all day every day since I last did. The embroidery is taking so long and I really don't want to show any more until it's finished. I've still got A LOT to do on this costume including putting the skirt together, adding the pleases, lining and zip as well as creating the petitcoat, pantaloons, wig, makeup and prehaps redoing the pin as I don't think scupty is strong enough for such a delicate piece (any suggestions?)

Phew, I'll try and get this embroidey done in the next week so I can stop stressing so much c:

Slow progress

The accessories are almost complete but progress is rediculasly slow because of how long the embroidery is taking me XP also I keep running of funds because of my driving lessons XP

28th June 2014

Haven't update in a while

Here some progress:
I've started and given up on the petticoat because I hate the fabric (going to try again with some cotton lawn after LFCC when I have more time)
I chose the wrong dye twice for acetate and when I finally got the dye type right I confused the colours. I've been panicking about the results all week as I think they're too bright but there's nothing I can do now xP if you every have to do idye have a good look at the colours first, they're confusing.
I started the embroidery and it's taking me so long, I'm doing the big bits first though so progress is going to speed up soon c: also the disney store store messing me about messing up my orders.

Corset in progress

Waiting for dye to dye skirt fabric and can't go any further with the corset until I get the skirt fabric and zip.

26th May 2014

Drafting embroidery patterns

I'm going to being the skirt first because it will take the longest so I drafted the designs using girdding.

18th May 2014

Pattern drafting

Here I have drafted the corset pattern from a commercial pattern. Also I have drafted *almost* all of the other patterns for this dress I have also found the perfect fabrics for the skirt & petitcoats.
