13th October 2014: Test! I tried on what I've done so far and am trying to decide whether to do more to the front of the costume or whether or not to bother with the cummerbund/sash.

My wig still needs styling too and there's no make up test or contacts. My blue circle lenses arrived though and they look perfect for it! :)

13th October 2014: WIP Waistcoat near completion, shirt and faux cravat. :)

Also fiddling with the front details, but I'm not using the gold ribbon, just the buttons!

9th October 2014: Jacket WIP Metallic gold thread used to add embroidery detail around the cuffs, collar and lapels in split and satin stitch. The collar's now on, so it just needs some buttons and a little hand sewing to complete it!

23rd September 2014: Embroidery progress Drew out a stencil and marked out the design in tailor's chalk before embroidering. It's taking a while! I plan to go around the edge of the green on the tailcoat with a gold metallic thread and the design on the back mirrors the one off the bust of Anna's original bodice pattern.

21st September 2014: Trousers 19th C style with velvet ribbon, fancy black trim and some gold ribbon strips that match the gold silk that I'll be using for the cravat. (I ended up fabric glueing these down because it wasn't sewing very well.) Have also been playing with making a cummerbund in the jacket lining material, but so far I haven't liked it so many end up scrapping the idea or trying something else out.

19th September 2014: Tailcoat Redid the tail pieces of the jacket to make them sit better. Sewed in the sleeves and cuffs, finished off the inside. Ready for embroidery work before the final bit of lining and collar go on!

14th September 2014: Tailcoat progress The main part of the jacket is done. Everything needs pressing (which is why the back is pinned/pulled like that) and there's some bits which are still just pinned for now because they need sewing on by hand. Going to adjust the collar too!

The top picture is better for colour. :)

Sleeves and then embroidery time! \o/

14th September 2014: Pattern I've made my patterns myself and have started by cutting out the waistcoat and tailcoat pieces. Thought I'd share a WIP before I start sewing tomorrow!

16th August 2014: Fabrics! Wippity WIP! The colours haven't shown particularly well, but second one in is a beautiful two tone cord sort of fabric that I'm using for the waistcoat. :) I also had fringing and braiding stuff for decoration and a few embroidery threads, but I need to get more!

Thanks! There's a lot of awesome genderbent Disney fanart out there and I love Anna as a character so much so it seemed right. :)

This looks great! If you felt the front needed more punch you could always add a sash like in the fanart!
