Frozen Inspired Princess Anna Cape

Frozen Inspired Princess Anna Cape - The Ribbon Retreat Blog

I’m so excited to have my second FROZEN tutorial ready for you guys today! I had a lot of fun making this for dress-up. I do have to admit that my daughter is a bit Elsa obsessed so I went more simple with my design for Anna. Rather than do her dress, I went with a simple cape. It’s not a very long project and you can have it ready for play in about an hour!

Supplies:
1 1/2 yards pink cotton–Moda Bella Solids in Magenta

Making the pattern and cutting the fabric

VEST
For the vest, I used the same bodice shape from her Elsa dress and just extended it in a slight A-line shape from the bottom. Cut two and then cut one down the center. These are the two sides of the front.

Make a backwards “J” for the armpit facing; cut 4 and sew together at top and bottom and fit into the arm hole. Serge or finish the opposite edge. I used white thread so you can see the seams, but I would use a pink to match!

CIRCLE
The top of the cape is basically a big round circle with a hole for the head cut in it. I measured from my daughter’s neck to wrist to see how long the radius needed to be and then guesstimated the neck hole to be about the same size as a cylinder of oats. While still folded in half, cut from one of the sides and around the center hole.

Serge or hem the outside edge of the circle and add pom pom trim.

ATTACHING TOGETHER
Cut 1 rectangle about 4″ wide and as long as your neckline. Taper the ends at an angle for the neck. Fold in half long-ways. This will become your collar. Sandwich the WRONG side of the vest, right side of the collar and right side of the circle cape. Pin and sew.

Hand stitch the closure to the top of the vest and collar.

It’s times like this when I want another daughter so they could be sisters and play Elsa and Anna together. This is what I get when I ask her to pose like Anna. I don’t know when she does that in the movie, but I’m thinking Eliza knows better than I do! You can tell that it’s been well-played with because it used to be smooth and now it’s all wrinkled. Ahh well.

 I think my favorite part about the cape is that it was so inexpensive to make, but looks so fantastic. Thanks to the gals at The Ribbon Retreat, you can replicate this cape for only $10.
