Ice Queen Play Dress Tutorial + Free Icicle Cut Files

Dress up is always a happy time out our house.  Between my 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son, we are constantly pretending to be one character or another.

With the release of the latest Frozen movie, we naturally have all been dancing around the house singing at the top of our lungs.  It was inevitable that a request for an ice queen outfit would happen.

My daughter has always loved Frozen.  From the time we made her a Princess Anna dress to outfits she wore on our Disney vacation.

All three of my children have been requesting dress up clothes.  I wanted to make this outfit very easy since I have several other outfits on my list to make as well.

That is why I decided to use our free girls peasant dress pattern as my base.  I can whip out outfits in no time and it is a great pattern that grows with my daughter.  Just add some extra length and she can wear it for several years.

To make the dress more authentic, I decided to create some icicle designs based on the Frozen II outfits.  I think they add something very special to the outfit and make it more than just a little dress up costume.

It is also made with cottons and can be easily washed.

Let me share with you how to make a Queen Elsa costume.

The best part about all this is not only will it fit my daughter, but my toddler son will be excited too.  He doesn't mind a good princess dress and that makes this momma smile.
