Most of her play dates center around who is Elsa or Anna, and her little brother can play only if he agrees to be Olaf.
I love the imagination her and her friends put into their pretend play and wanted to add to it, but in an economical way...no $45 costumes here!
A quick Google search yielded several takes on Elsa's blue dress and cape. Inspired by the variety of the recreations I was able to use items already in my fabric stash...except for the white gauze material that I picked up in a remnant bin for a bit over a dollar. (A dollar is my favorite price tag. I swear I'll buy anything if its a dollar!)
First time using iron-on hem tape and I am SOLD! So.Much.Easier!
I totally hate ironing but it was worth it!
This piece was "precut." Came from a fabric grab-bag off of Freecycle.
Perfect for the off-the-shoulder top of the cape.
This train is so much fun in the wind!
I think the off the shoulder part of the cape is annoying but she likes it. Here she is trying to convince me that it works as a coat, too, so she can wear it outside. :)
She loves wearing this while singing along with the movie. "Let it go! Let it go!" (stuck in your head, too?)
