Anna From Frozen continued.....

The skirt is still not done....Need to do some embroidery and some hand stitching on the waist.  So I moved on to the cape and hat.  The cape is a heavily modified Wicked Witch of the West pattern (Simplicity 7091),  I made it out of felt and not fabric like the pattern calls for. I basically just used the pattern to get the basic cape shape.  I probably could have gone shorter in the front...but I'm not going to dwell on it.....(well maybe just a little).  Then I added the mini balls for trim since it looks like that is what she has on it in the movie.  Yes I rented the movie from Netflix late one night.  Dang that Elsa turns into a little hottie real quick...doesn't she?  The hat was a cut and sew crap shoot.  I basically just cut a sort of elongated rounded diamond out of the felt to get some sort of shape to go over her noggin.  Then I used pretty ribbon elastic sewn to the inside of the hat (under her hair) to keep the hat on.  Added the little black trim to that too.
