To start off we would like to notate that the design and colors we chose for this outfit are based off of the concept art and what we thought would look nice together.
The bodice is made from the same pattern as Elsa’s Snow Queen bodice. It is fully lined and steel boned and has a zipper down the side and not the back. Putting the zipper in the side allowed for us to place the design on the back without any problems. The top and bottom edging is hand cut bias tape from a green dupioni silk. We felt that the silk edging the velvet would give a beautiful contrast of materials. The sleeves are a pleated teal silk that is edged in a simple white lace. The bodice design was cut like the skirting designs with heat n’ bond and then fixed into position. On top of the detailing we placed multiple sizes of Swarovski crystals to give a little extra.
To make this I think the same strategy used for her frozen fever dress would work here (whether that be paint, appliqué, or embroidery). Personally I’m going to appliqué the Yule goat and embroidery the interior details for them. The bells and floral designs will probably be all embroidery.
From here on I’m going to be tagging this dress as her “Yule dress”.
