Anastasia was one of my favorite movies! I have watched probably more times than is healthy. I love her gold dress that she wears at the end, so I decided to make it for Animefest this year.
The skirt was made using McCall's pattern 4090 (I drafted the pieces in the front and the train). The top was from Simplicity pattern 1728 (front design and shoulder strap drafted by me). The sleeves are from Simplicity pattern 2573. The yellow and ivory fabrics are Casa Satin from Joann's. The pink is a poly satin from Fabric.com. The blue sash is a satin from Golden D'or Fabrics. The crown is made from Worbla and is covered with over 2000 rhinestones.
I had a blast making this costume and was delighted by the reaction it got at the con. Seems I wasn't the only one who LOVED this movie!
