"Let it Go" frozen inspired dress - a mouse house creation pattern

The Sew Fab bundle sale is nearing the end (only a few more days to go) and I saved the best Frozen project til the end. I wanted to make a dress inspired by the movie, but not so obviously "frozen"

I used the Norah Dress pattern by Mouse House creations for this dress, and it is part of the Sew Fab Bundle Sale that is going on this week

I sewed the sleeveless version and left off the collar (there are A LOT of options with this dress) so I could have a blank canvas to work with. I Ironed on a large piece of lightweight interfacing on the back of the dress in the area that I planned to do the embellishments.

For the text, I took a fading fabric marker and just wrote out the words "let it go" in a fancy script and sewed back and forth over a few times over the lines (roughly) to make it stand out.

I then embellished the words, with sequins, beads and flat-back jewels, and embroidered snowflakes. I tried to make it as magical and 'snowy' as I could.
You can never have enough jewels right?

I LOVE they way it turned out....not too 'frozen', but a pretty dress that could be worn many times. I also like that they style of this pattern allows for all season wear, as well as years of  wear (she can wear it as a tunic next year)

I also made up a quick headband to match the dress

Here is what I did

You need, a plain or solid colored headband, felt snowflakes and some flat-back jewels, and a gluegun

I used ones that were a thicker felt, I got them off this strange felt banner thing (I have NO idea where it came from....I have the strangest things in my craft room :) ). I just cut them off the banner

I used a glue gun to stick the snowflakes on. I pretty much just kept them to one side and kept overlapping them until I as happy with how it looked.

Then I added the jewels to the center of the snowflakes, and Voila! a pretty snowy headband

And it goes perfectly with the dress....

So go grab you Sew Fab Bundle now and get sewing!

  4. first of all i love this! and second i just noticed that your colorblock dress would work perfectly for my idea of a frozen dress for my girl's birthday! I love the norah too, but the neckline of yours would work great for the one i'm picturing which is good cause I've been wanting to make a colorblock dress for awhile anyway :)
