Making an Anna dress!!

Ready to make an Anna dress - OTD

 

My daughters 4th birthday is quickly approaching, and as in the tradition of making my daughters a dress each birthday, Im making her an Anna dress! She is after all, a younger sister!

I started out by googling images of the young Annas dress. I printed out the ones that could show the dress the best.

Then I found the best dress pattern I had to fit the style. It is in a Size 4, which is the size I need. It also has a higher waist, and short sleeves. The skirt of the pattern is gathered, where young Annas dress is A-line. But that can be easily fixed. The sleeves are also plain rather than gathered, but again, I can fix that! I will use the colours of fabric to work a bodice into the top.

Next, I went to my fabric stash and low and behold, I had all the colours in the right amount. I was pretty happy about that! Even the weird light colour, that isnt quite white, cream or green.

So now, I just have to make it!!

Im planning on making it into a tutorial, so stay tuned 🙂
