Elsa for Halloween

I'm a sucker for adorable children in costume. Frozen is the current Disney juggernaut, and there will be an absolute plague of Elsas at your door this year. I went with the official pattern from Simplicity.
The pattern went together easily, I did forget to sew on the extra cape in the right sequence so I had to add it later and then cover with some trim. The organza top proved to be the worst bit, mostly because it frayed like crazy. Would recommend finishing those seams. I went back over with a zigzag but they will give out first. Would redo in maybe a stretch net.

I know this is mixing characters but the cloak is really cute and took no time to put together. I cheated with ricrac instead of appliques.
