It's Been A Real Slice September: Frozen Fever Anna Cosplay Tutorial Part Four: Vest


I know it's been a really long time since my last installment of this tutorial, but you can see them here, here, and here.


A while back, I found this beautiful tapestry tablecloth at Goodwill. I knew I wanted to use it for something, and when Frozen Fever came out it found its purpose.


I started with the vest from the doll, tissue paper, and a piece of paper.


I figured out the approximate shape of the vest and drew it on the paper.


Then I figured out what I wanted my measurements to be.


I drew the design to scale on the tissue paper and cut it out, thus creating my pattern piece. There are pins in it because my tissue ripped in the middle.


I pinned my pattern to the fabric and cut it out.



Then I turned my fabric inside out and pinned where I wanted the seams to be.


On the dress form:


All that was necessary was a simple straight stitch along the seams.


Anna's vest has blue piping aroung the edges, so I took the ribbon from my hair accessory...



... and pinned it around the edges.



Bonus picture of my dog's foot because she wouldn't move... ;)


Once again I just used a simple straight stitch.


The flower designs on the front were hand painted using acrylic paints.


So far so good, right?


For the design on the back, I went with a simplified version because I wanted my fabric to be the focal point instead of more flowers.

I started by pinning some pale cream ribbon to the back and sewing it on wherever I had pins.


Then I hot glued another flower underneath the "peak" of the ribbon.


Using glittery blue nail polish, I added some accents.


And that concludes the vest! Easy enough, right?
