Disney’s Frozen – Elsa Costume Tutorial: Part 3

written by Sarah

In part 3 of the Elsa Costume tutorial, we go over how to construct the yoke and how to attach it to the bodice. We also show how to attach the sleeves and the neckline of the bodice lining. We’ve deviated from the pattern instructions a bit, but the end result is the same – an awesome Elsa Dress.

The hardest part is working with sheer fabric and attaching the sleeves. It can definitely be a bit tricky, so be sure to leave any questions in the comment section below.

Make sure to use a pressing cloth if ironing your sheer fabric. Handle the material as delicately as you can and take breaks if you become frustrated. Good luck! I hope this helps those out there struggling with the bodice and yoke. There is more to come, so stay tuned!

Sarah…. I absolutely love your tutorial pt 1,2 & 3 for making the Frozen Elsa dress…. BUT… I am currently trying to get this done before Halloween for my 6yr old Sophia and would like to know how long for the next parts for finishing the dress. This is extremely challenging as this is the first time I am making a dress from scratch. Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you. Cheryl

What do I do if it’s too big for my daughter? I wrapped the bodice around Her and honestly I don’t really need piece 4 either of them, maybe just about an inch of backing. And if I take out piece 4 then the yoke won’t fit right either and everything falls apart right? I have only made one pair of pj pants and jumped in to this mess :/ please help

Are you using the size 3 dress — if you are, this is the smallest size in this pattern. You will need to take in both side seams between pieces 2 and 3 — that also means that you will have to take in the sleeve seam. By taking in these seams equal amounts you should not have to alter any of the yoke. For a perfect fit you may have to also take in the shoulder seams just a little bit. Increase your seam allowance by 1/2″ (in addition to the additional 5/8″ seam allowance) which overall will take 2″ off of the bodice. Please let me know if you have any other trouble.

The link for making the body form is: https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/blog/?s=duct+tape&submit=Search. There are also various video tutorials online that may be helpful.

Just wanted to thank you guys for doing these tutorial/follow-along vids. They’re super helpful for a sewing newbie like myself. I’ve been constructing my 3 year old’s costume along with you guys and am anxiously awaiting the final vid. This would’ve been a much bigger headache/nightmare without you guys!

LOVED the Elsa Costume Tutorials! I’m a beginner and wanted desperately to make my little girls wish come true with this for her 3rd Birthday “Frozen” Party this weekend! Of course she will wear on Halloween with her 7 month old brother being Olaf (he’s gonna be adorable)! I could not have gotten this far and with the pace without your help! It’s been amazing! Only one problem…will part 4 be posted soon? Not sure I can pull it off without you!
Thanks so much!
Lauren
