Frozen Anna Dress Patterns for 18 Inch Dolls 
 by Susan Kramer
Inspired by the Disney movie "Frozen"

Here are instructions for making Frozen's Anna style dresses to fit 18inch (45cm) American Girl, other American historical dolls, Corolle dolls, Gotz Precious Day Girl Dolls, and dolls with similar body types. The model above on the left is my 18 inch Gotz Precious Day doll, Emily. The model is my American Girl doll, Gwen. The bodice sits separately over the skirt so they can be interchanged with different sets of skirts if you wish. Link to Elsa style dress patterns

This design is my interpretation of the dresses worn in the Disney film "Frozen."

Under the skirt I made a petticoat and a crinoline. Directions for these are below dress pattern.

You’ll need one third yard (one quarter meter) of material for the skirt.

For the front and back bodice, you'll need one quarter yard contrasting material.

 

Pattern Pieces:
 
Pattern pieces for bodice: The grid is 1 inch (2.5cm) squares. Pattern pieces include one quarter inch seam allowance. You may use the pattern for yourself or gifts but not commercially.


To make your 1-inch square (2.5cm) grid graph paper

First, take an 8.5x11 inch piece of plain paper and draw 1 inch squares - I do this by drawing horizontal lines 1 inch apart down the page, and then vertical lines 1 inch apart across the page.

Next, looking at the .jpg image you want to draw what is in each of my squares into your larger squares.

Sewing Instructions


Anna Dress

 

Bodice Sewing Instructions:

 

Embroidery pattern on front of bodice:

 

 

 

 

Bodice front and back sewn together at side seams.

 

Lining and front bodice facing and sewn all around outside edge, except at one back seam left open to turn right side out - then blind stitch closed:

 

 

 

After turning bodice right side out, but before butting and sewing shoulder seams together.

 

 


Step One:

 

With right sides of back and front pieces facing, sew together at underarms. Press seam open.

 

Repeat with lining fabric as seen in photos above.

Step Two:


Sew right side of outside fabric to right side of lining fabric, leaving one side of back opening unseen so bodice can be turned right side out as seen in finished dress in beginning photo.

 

Step Three:

 

Butt together finished shoulder seams and blind stitch.

Step Four:


To finish back seam of bodice, turn in open back edge and blind stitch closed, then overlap waist edge on quarter inch and tack together with a sticky strip - no buttons, please if children will play with costume.



Anna Top Skirt and Petticoat:


Cut a rectangle 42 inches wide and 9 inches long so it is not longer than skirt of dress. Gather waist to eleven inches and sew a satin or cross grain thin ribbon over with tails long enough to make a square knot. To make smooth hem fold up lower edge on quarter inch and over lay with same ribbon. Sew side seam.
