James, a good friend of Wayne’s, has two little girls. I volunteered to make Halloween costumes for them this year. He asked the girls what they wanted to be and both responded with the Frozen characters. One wants to be Anna and the other Elsa.
One of my concerns was that the Elsa costume was really flashy and sparkly and the Anna one is not. I feared that the Anna wearer would be disappointed. For that reason, I decided to make the Anna costume very detailed and pretty.
It was interesting when I went to JoAnn fabrics to purchase the fabric. The clerks at this particular store are very nice and friendly. When I told them what I was doing they all said that if they were going to be one of the characters it would be Anna. However, they said that nearly all the little girls wanted to be Elsa. This jived with what I had already suspected.
I didn’t expect to spend three whole days sewing these costumes. Generally, I can complete a pattern in one day easily. These were quite the challenge. Watch the video for all the details of this project and a few hints that will make it easier for you to complete them yourself.
