Frozen Fever Sophie Dress

Later this week is my next door neighbor's 3rd birthday.  Last week I asked her who her favorite princess was and she said "Anna from Frozen".  I happened to just get in new Frozen Fever fabric so I decided to make her a Frozen Fever dress.

Let's start with the fabric.  For the skirt, bodice front sides, bodice back and lining I used the brand new Disney Frozen Fever fabric from Springs Creative.  It features Elsa and Anna in the dresses they wore on the short Frozen Fever.  Olaf and little mini snowmen (which my daughter tells me were the result of Elsa sneezing) are also on the fabric.  The colors are vibrant and fun.  The fabric in the middle section is Michael Miller Fairy Frost in Lagoon.  Sorry I do not have this fabric in stock but bought it retail from a shop.

On the middle piece I embroidered a sunflower that matches the ones on Anna's skirt.  I used an applique design I bought from Lovely Leaf Applique on etsy.  I used the 4x4 size, which was perfect for this 2T dress.  I also used metallic gold piping on the bodice between the center and side pieces.  I purchased the piping at Hobby Lobby.

On the back I used a beautiful lace zipper.  Exposed zippers are so much easier to install than the traditional zippers and add a fun element to the dress.

Now for the pattern.  I used the Sophie dress pattern from Made for Mermaids.  The sleeves in the original pattern are 3/4 length.  I used her add on pattern for the sleeves shown and made the short sleeves with cuff.  This is one of my favorite patterns and with the add on pack there are tons of new options, making this a very versatile pattern.
