Frozen Elsa Dress Patterns for 18 Inch Dolls 
 by Susan Kramer

Inspired by the Disney movie "Frozen"

Here are instructions for making Frozen's Elsa 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 is my 18 inch Gotz Precious Day doll, Emily. The bodice sits separately over the skirt so they can be interchanged with different sets of skirts if you wish. Link to Frozen's Anna 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.

Elsa Bodice - 1 square equals 1 inch (2.5cm)

Skirt Material:
 
Cut fabric 42 inches (56cm) wide and 9 inches (20cm) long for skirt to just below lower calf or 9.5 inches (24cm) long to just above ankle length. Finished length is 8 inches (17.5cm). Skirt is gathered to 11 inches (27.5cm) or waist measurement of your doll.

Sewing Instructions


Elsa Dress in Blue Fabrics

 

Bodice Sewing Instructions:

Lining Fabric:

 

 

 

Outside fabric:

 


Step One:

 

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

 

Repeat with lace and lining fabric as seen in photos above.

Step Two:


Sew right side of lace 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:


To finish back seam of bodice, turn in twice on each center edge and hand or machine stitch to make a one quarter inch hem. Overlap waist edge on quarter inch and tack together with a sticky dot.

 

Step Four:

 

The shoulder straps are pre-gathered lace, 3 inches (7.5cm) long on each side. Cut each strap an inch (2.5cm) longer, to sew under a half inch at the top edge of the bodice on each side.

 

Step Five:

 

Lace inset on bodice front: At center V center a 3 inch (7.5cm) wide by 1.5 inch (3.75cm) high piece of lace and sew on the lining side of bodice.


Elsa Top Skirt, Petticoat and Crinoline


Top Skirt and Petticoat:


Cut a rectangle 42 inches wide and 9 inches long. 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.
