*My daughter wore this costume for Halloween 2014 but I am just now getting around to sharing it now – complete blogger fail*
Like practically every other little girl in 2014, my 5 year old wanted to be Elsa for Halloween. I could have bought a costume but we kind of have a tradition that Mom makes your costume. As long as I can get away with it I’m going to stick to that plan.
Since my sewing skills stink I knew making a dress from scratch wasn’t going to happen. I needed to find a dress that already fit Caroline and add to that. I found a completely white dress that had been given to us, discussed the design with Caroline, took a trip with her to the fabric store, and just jumped in to making it.
Caroline picked out this blue sequined overlay (is that what this is called?) so I hand stitched it onto the white dress.
At this point the dress was too short for Caroline so I needed to add some length with the blue satin (aka old bridesmaid standard fabric). I have no idea why there is a seam in the middle of the dress.
We made a cape which was made of the blue satin and then the blue sequin overlay sewed on top of that.
Add a little face paint for Halloween and we have one happy
I also bought this accessories set on etsy for Caroline (I can’t find the store now). She wanted all the pieces and I thought why not. On the end of the gloves I added sequins to make them look even more “princessy.” This set blew the budget but I didn’t really care.

What are your little ones going to be this year?
