Is your doll an Elsa fan? Now you can transform her into her favorite frozen snow queen with this gorgeous dress pattern!

The dress opens in the back and the bodice opens on one side. Make the top with sheer mesh knit or use an optional woven version. You can make this dress as grand or as simple as you like!

The Winter Snow Queen Gown came out beautiful as well as a few other princess patterns that I made. Your patterns and instructions were so easy to follow. I will definitely be returning to your site for more doll patterns!
This is an amazingly well done pattern. The step by step instructions help make this feel very do-able. I made two of the dresses at the same time, one for Gramma's house and one to send to the distant granddaughters. The finished gown is as beautiful as the photo on the pattern. I found suitable fabrics at Joann's. My older granddaughter was really impressed with the accurate details of the cape/train of the gown. Very fun and very rewarding project!
This was an incredible pattern with a lot of detail. The pictures were phenomenal! I added a few twists of my own and if you would like to see my rendition of this gown, take time to visit the shop AdollablebyRita on Etsy.com.
