Elsa Coronation Pre-Preview

UPDATE! As of 4.11.2014 You can purchase your very own 
Elsa Coronation Dress + Cape in my Etsy store and my Craftsy store!

Oh my goodness! I've wanted to share other posts with you this past week, but time has eluded me. If you've been following me on Joy2Sew Facebook you've been directly eyeing all that has been coming into my hands and out of my studio this past week. Wow! But, to keep you excited still, I am going to show you some pictures of my Elsa Coronation Dress...just a few teaser photos of my gorgeous niece in it the other day. The outfit is still awaiting stencils, and a few finishing touches, but you get the idea of what's coming, right?!!

 Presenting: Elsa's Coronation outfit (preliminary photo shoot). The satin is actually turquoise, not blue at all, like the photos came out (hmm...dark lighting?). For my first Coronation dress, I decided to do two separate pieces: The top is all one (black + turquoise) and the skirt separate (the Anna skirt actually). So, if you already have purchased the Anna costume, you will also have the option to make this dress in separates like I did. The directions in this pattern will showcase how to make it all a one-piece (just like Elsa Ice Dress). Does that make sense?

So... pre-preview of real pictures:

 (black velcro will replace the safety pins here for closure)




(Please ignore the baby swing and the tricycle in the background...that's daily life around here... )
When I asked Lilly if I should shorten the cape for her before I let her have it, she said emphatically, 
"Oh, no, Aunt Joy. This one is longer than hers in the movie, and I must have it just like this." 
My reply: "But honey, your brothers will step on your train." 
Lilly: "I will only wear it on special occasions then."
Love.love.love this little niece of mine! 

 And soon the snap and broach will get placed...
And the outfit stenciled...
don her homemade Elsa crown....
have new photos taken, and then.....
 she'll look just like Elsa!!!
I think I'm loving this outfit, even without the cape!
ooh...just a few more weeks...are you excited yet???

4.14.14 Update: Elsa Pattern is NOW AVAILABLE in my shop!!!!
You can also purchase a licensing agreement, giving you consent to sell handmade items from my pattern! How exciting of an opportunity to make an easy dress, bring business to your own shop, and have a VERY in demand product to sell! Princess Anna Pattern is also available as well, and so easy for beginner sewers to make!
