The pattern was also acquired online.
I have barely left the house.
It has been years since I used such slippery
slide-y stuff, but it went quite well overall. The only hard parts were near the end. Why are the last steps of any project always the most fiddly?
Even the zipper color isn't the best but I was determined NOT to buy one when I have a drawer filled with at least 100 zippers!
|Here is her best royal wave. More practice needed.|

Most irritating of all to sew, and probably to wear is the sleeve set in. I have been doing so many projects where I sew that seam before closing up the side and sleeve seam that I forgot what a pain it is and this fabric tended to ravel and the silver stuff doesn't allow the fabric to fold over easily. This was especially difficult in hemming this stuff. It is all wavery looking. That neckline might have layed flatter if I could press it properly, but I was afraid of melting it.
I think she looks every inch as good as Elsa. Hope the company that starts with D doesn't think I am committing copyright crime with this little pic. I am only advertising for them and not selling.
Doubtful this will get a lot of wear, but then washing it is probably not a good idea. Sometimes sewing is just a labor of love, all practicality aside.
