Simplicity 2571: DIY Anna from Frozen Cape
The love for Frozen still rumbles on in this household.
Here’s the inspiration:
Here’s my version:
I used view D from Simplicity 2571. If I had thought about it I would have rounded the corners off. The fabric is the same fabric I used to make my New Look 6097 wrap dress. I simply cut 2 back pieces; one lengthened to around 70 cm, and one shortened to around 30 cm, and treated them as one, sewing them to a shortened front piece. I didn’t interface the collar.
Close up of the pom pom trim:
It’s all very rough and ready. I didn’t even finish any edges or hem it…but it’s a ponte knit…so what…and the important thing is that Kezia loves it.
About this pattern: I (or rather Kezia) have had my money’s worth out of it. Pre-blogging days I used view A to make her a wedding dress. This photo was taken in 2011…how fast they grow!
And this is her in 2012 wearing the red riding hood cape from view B. Off to take lunch to granny’s house through the woods!
One pattern. Many looks. So many happy childhood memories. These are the things which make sewing worthwhile.
Have a great Sunday and week ahead!
