Well I finally made it!! A Frozen dress (hopefully) worthy of Elsa! Once again, I chose to make a dress with hundreds of beads to sew on because i'm obviously some kind of masochist...But, sparkly!
I really love the back of this one and although it's kind of hard to see in the picture I think the hand-painted snowflake designs on the chiffon really work well
The main dress is made from blue cotton material, acid washed to give the effect of frozen water. Over the skirt, there is a chiffon overlay with hand-painted (with watered down fabric paints) snowflake designs. The bodice is encrusted with diamond-style beads and felt snowflakes cover the neckline. The dress has a semi-transparent chiffon back with more of the felt snowflakes to provide covering.
There is a zip down the side of the bodice, going into the skirt.
