Frozen Anna costume elements
Check your printer settings to make sure that the pattern does not get scaled down when you print.
Seam allowances are indicated on the pattern pieces as dashed lines.

Anna’s skirt is a circle skirt. See this post for instructions on how to make a circle skirt.

Anna’s cape
Once you have cut out the pattern pieces for the capelet, sew Front Panels to Back pieces of the capelet at the shoulder seams (right sides together).
Sew Side Panels to Front and Back.
Create collar by sewing together 2 Collar pieces, right sides together.
Turn right sides out and topstitch the collar.


Sew the open edge of the collar to the capelet, right sides together.
Turn collar up and topstitch around the outside of the capelet.


Finish off the collar/capelet seam with bias tape.
Add pom pom trim to the capelet.
At this point, I also added a small strip of fabric to put in a hook and eye fastener at the neck.

Measurements for the cape are shown in the picture below.


I sewed the cape onto the seam allowances on the inside of the capelet.


Frozen Anna costume 3

Anna’s hat

Frozen Anna costume hat

Cut out 2 of each pattern piece.


Sew Top piece to Side pieces


Sew Back piece to Front and Side pieces



Iron out the seams


You should have 2 identical hats now.
Pin the 2 hats together, right sides together (seams facing outwards) along the front, with the fur trim in between the 2 hats.


When you turn right sides out, it should look something like this:


Decide where you would like to place the headband. Pin bias tape in place




Sew the bias tape leaving ends open


Thread the headband through

Finish off the open edges of the hat with purple bias tape (you can take the headband out to do this).


Add some wire in the seam created by the purple bias tape (see image above) so that the hat will stay against the face, like in the movie


If you don’t add wire to stiffen up the sides, you’ll end up with this look instead

hunter hat

not quite as glamorous. :)

Frozen Anna costume mittens

Anna’s vest

I cut out the Vest pattern pieces from a large black tshirt.
Sew Vest Front to Vest Back, right sides together (shoulder and side seams).
Finish off the vest with yellow (or gold) bias tape around the neck and the bottom edge.

For the designs on the vest and on the skirt, I created stencils that I cut out with my Silhouette machine.

    Thank you for the Anna/Frozen hat pattern. It’s the best on the web and your pictures and tips were really clear and easy to follow. I especially appreciate the note about the headband to keep it on and wiring the edge. Thank you.

    What type of fabric did you use for Anna’s hat?

      The fabric used was a synthetic blend, not sure exactly what though. I had selected one bolt of what looked like velveteen fabric and the lady in the fabric store showed me this one which was the same colour and 5 times cheaper, so that’s what I got in the end! :) For a costume, I think it’s okay to buy cheap fabric.
      The trim is bias tape and fake fur.

    Hi there, amazing tutorial! Why fabric paint did you use for the stencils?

      I used fabric paint purchased in my local DIY store in Switzerland. Any fabric paint for dark fabrics will work I should imagine.

    Thank you so much! I made the costume from a commercial pattern, but this was a perfect guide/pattern for the hat and mittens. I can’t believe you do all this wonderful work for free. You are a winner.
