To make this costume look super cute, we will also share some ideas that you can easily try with Venise lace and appliques. So, read till the end.
What You Will Need
- Turquoise tulle (about 2 to 3 spools with the side of 6 inches)
- Elastic/ribbon to make the waistband
- Tape measure
- Venise lace
- Needle and thread
DIY Tips to Create Frozen Elsa Dress
Step 1: Cut Tulleinto Strips
To designa tutu, determine how long you want the tutu for your child to be. To land the tutu just a little above the knees, a 22-inches long tulle will be enough for a 5-year-old girl. Since you will double the fabric, you need to cut the two rolls of tulle into 44-inches long strips.
Step 2: Make the Waistband
Measure the ribbon/elastic so that it fits around your child’s waist. Add an extra inch to the length and don’t sew the ends yet.
Step 3: Create the Tutu Skirt
To keep it simple, werecommend using slip knots to create the tutu skirt look.
To make a slip knot, fold a strip of tulle in half (in the U-shape) and pull the tulle archbehind the waistband, holding the top open with your thumb and index finger. Reach through the loop and pull the tulle’s tail across the loop and pull it tight to make a knot. If you have knitted sweaters before, think of slip knots as the knots that you make around a knitting needle.
Now, continue making slip knots around the waistband closely. Once you cover the whole waistband, sew or tie up both ends of the waistband together.
Step 4: Embellish the Tutu Skirt for a Perky Look
Once you have the tutu skirt ready, you can hide the knots on the waistband by using a puff organza flower lace trim, a beaded lace trim with a floral leaf design or a Venise lace with floral patterns to enhance the look.
Apart from that, you can sew in a few butterfly appliqués on the front of the tutu skirt in a random fashion.
Alternatively, you can also use a butterfly appliqué on the turquoise top that you have bought or crafted for your girl to wear with the tutu skirt.
To create the cape just like Elsa’s, get a yard of turquoise tulle with a dotted or snowflake pattern on it. Knot the edges around the arms so that it hangs off the shoulder in the back.
Finally, ask your girl to wear the dress and add the crown to achieve a princess’s look.
