As you can probably tell by the title I am now working on the Anastasia ball gown from the end of the Anastasia animated film from 1997. A great film if you haven’t already seen it. She wears many wonderful dresses and pieces from the film. This dress isn’t for a specific con. In my state they are holding a Princess Parade for the children at a mall and I will be there as Anastasia. It is mainly Disney but I requested to make Anastasia and I was able too.
I have already done a steampunk version of Snow White, and I plan on doing a more correct one for later and there were many other options I wanted to do. But having recently watched this while sewing I decided I would try to tackle her ball gown at the end of the film. I won’t give away any spoilers, other than that of course.
There are quite a few supplies I needed for this costume.
Petticoat- 6 yards fabric, ruffle edge.
Skirt-6 yards golden fabric for the skirt, two yards of white satin, 4 yards pink fabric for under, 4 yards pink chiffon for over, thread, embroidery, sequins, beads, pearls, cording,
Bodice- 1 yard of the same gold fabric for the skirt, left over white satin from the skirt, 1 yards pink fabric, 1 yards pink chiffon, embroidery, sequins, beads, pearls, cording, boning, lacing, grommets
Crown, Necklace, Bracelet, Shoes.
P.S. This is a post heavy costume, I think roughly five. Not sure yet. I made a hooped crinoline for this, but I didn’t end up using it so I will save that post for later on.
