Often I have to be very careful about pattern pieces getting too large, but these two skirts didn't cause a problem. Elsa's skirt is very slim and Anna's pleated skirt has three skinny pieces that are each cut ten times each. That allowed me to make a nice BIG cape.
But, we just have to do our best to find fabrics that are as close as possible. The licensor, in this case Disney, has to approve everything. I've worked on projects where the actual costume was sent in and came back with all sorts of notes pinned all over for the corrections they wanted.
Now usually photos are sent of the finished costumes for approval and I'm lucky that there haven't been too many changes as of late.
Now, in this photo I'm pressing the paper backed webbing to the fabric, so in this case I only needed the baking parchment on the back side of the fabric.
Friday, Anna's pleated skirt.
