Elsa Ice Queen Gown – inspired by Frozen for American Girl

Elsa gown for American Girl Dolls - pattern available in my Etsy shop

♥ Elsa Ice Queen Gown  Costume for American Girl Dolls ♥ 

~The first in a series of outfits & patterns inspired by  the move Frozen by Disney.~

As I sat watching Frozen with my older kids who, like me, still love Disney I was immediately thinking of recreating the costumes. They are based on Nordic, specifically Norwegian ethnic designs although highly stylized. I create designs for American Girl Dolls, offering my sewing patterns for sale via my Etsy and Craftsy shops and yet I have plans to branch into clothes for children later this year.

I’ve been making costumes and special occasion clothes for over 20 years. This design was more challenging than it first appeared. Despite the simplistic lines, there is some complexity to it. Plus, it needed to retain the original design’s sleekness while suiting the chunky-ish shape of AG dolls. 

Here is my finished design, and I invite you to my shop to see enlarged views. Thank you so much for looking 🙂  http://www.etsy.com/shop/DollhouseDesigns
