Fairy Tale Magic - Elsa and Anna
Costume and Photography: Liz King
In the mountains of Arendelle, an icy blue gown shimmers in the morning light. This royal ensemble presents an enchanting look for a snow queen.
“For the first time in forever there'll be magic there'll be fun!”
The Augusta Maxi Dress sewing pattern and a blast of icy power combines to fashion an unforgettable gown. The beautiful drape adds a brilliant pop of luxury to the sweetheart neckline. A two yard train was fashioned from an iridescent fabric, hemmed on all sides and gathered at the top, and a pettiskirt layered beneath ties the magical look together. A perfect style for saving the kingdom from winter's cold grip.
Littlest sis was envious of sister’s icy blue gown, so we stitched up a coordinating Anna dress using LLK’s Siena pattern with quilting cottons for the bodice & skirt and sleeves fashioned out of remaining material from the Snow Queen’s dress. The bodice was cut in a V shape, to mimic the original dress, and detailed machine embroidery added the finishing touch to the sister set.
Thankfully this sister was not trapped in perpetual winter; she was saved by her queen sister thanks to an act of true love and her mama’s sewing machine.
Fairytale Magic has been such a wonderful opportunity to recreate our favorite princesses in a new medium. The team at LLK has provided sewing inspiration from a variety of iconic characters for your handmade designs. It’s pretty special to realize that with a little time and a lot of fabric, you can make your little one’s princess fairy tale dreams come true!
Stay tuned tomorrow for the grand finale of Fairytale Magic.
