Don’t leave out the boys in the Frozen fun! With this inspired DIY Kristoff Costume Tutorial, you’ll have your little guy ready for Halloween or everyday dress-up fun in no time! This pattern only comes in one size but that’s probably ok….it may take a little more convincing to get your older boys to dress up as Kristoff with their sister as Elsa.
Make this DIY Kristoff Costume
I just love this costume so much on my little blondie! Now little Kristoff just needs some boots…and a reindeer;)
Most of the Kristoff costume is fleece so it actually sews up really quickly! I made his whole costume in one day.
And really with that face how could I say no?
Let’s get started with making Kristoff!
Patterns I Used to Make the Kristoff Costume
OK. First let’s talk about the costume patterns:
- Nordic Tunic: I have a FREE pattern available for you in a size 2t. The tunic pattern is free when you Subscribe to our Newsletter or Join our Facebook Group. The Coupon Code is found in the New Subscriber E-mail and/or the first post in our Facebook Group. Download it here. Tutorial is below.
- Pants: I used the Lullaby Line Pants in black fleece for the costume. This is a super quick sew or if you already have black pants in the closet you’re all set 🙂
- Shirt: I used the Grand Slam because it’s fast but any shirt pattern will do or layer with something you already own.
- Frozen Hat: I used the Snow Day Hat in grey fleece for the costume. This is seriously a 10 minute sew and can be made with leftovers from the tunic.
- Sash: 1 1/3 yards trim found at Joanns to finish off Kristoff’s look.
Kristoff Costume Materials for a size 2t tunic:
- 1/2 yard gray fleece fabric
- Scraps of red and purple felt for embellishing
- 1/8 fur for the trim
Tunic Step 1: Print out your DIY Kristoff costume pattern at 100% (make sure it’s not set to “shrink to fit”, etc.) and tape it together along the dashed lines. I didn’t include a taping guide but the pieces tile like this for the front:
The back pieces just stack (1, 2, 3)
Tunic Step 2: Embellish the front of the costume with your felt. Leave a 1/2″ seam allowance along the front neck (not v cut-out) for your seam allowance. I forgot to do this and had to move things over later.
Tunic Step 3: With right sides together (RST) sew the front and back of the costume together across the shoulder seams.
Tunic Step 4: Turn right side out and with RST sew the collar to the neckline.
Tunic Step 5: Cut a length of fur to 2″ longer than the neckline and 2.5″ wide. Fold the fur in half so the wrong sides are together. Position the fur on the wrong side of the neckline so the raw edges are hidden and the folded edge extends up. Topstitch in place with the ends overlapping at the v in the neckline. Trim any excess. This does have raw edges but my son didn’t seem to mind at all and since it’s just a costume I just left it. If the raw edges bother you, you can cut a 2nd collar piece and enclose things.
Tunic Step 6: Cut strips of fur for each sleeve and topstitch using the same method as in step 5.
Tunic Step 7: With RST sew up the side seam/sleeve inseam
Tunic Step 8: Add fur trim to the bottom edge with the 2 ends overlapping at the point in front
Tie on a sash and you’re done with Kristoff’s costume!
Frozen Family Halloween Costumes
Need to dress up a few more kiddos to make family Halloween costumes? Make sure to get the Olaf Tutorial and the Elsa Tutorial.
Olaf pattern for an infant
I would like to make the tunic for my husband. Can this be sized up?
Hi!!! I was wondering where you found the sash fabric?!?!
Can you offer any advice on how to size UP the tunic to a 4T? Thanks!
Thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial. You have made my boys SO happy!!!! After making my daughter an Elsa dress, my 5 year old and 2.5 year old sons wanted Kristoff outfits. I finished their costumes this afternoon using your tutorial. Thanks again!
I’m so glad they like them!
This is sooooo cute. Thanks so much for sharing. Can’t wait to make it!!
Thank you for the great tutorial! My daughter sent it to me yesterday and I’ve already sewed up a cute tunic and blogged about it.
Did you use some kind of pattern to cut out the embellishments out of the red and purple felt? I didn’t see one, and I tried to free-hand it and it didn’t go so well (beginner here). If you did have something I could use to cut out the embellishments I would appreciate it so much if you would share it. Thank you! And thank you for providing this tutorial!!!
I just free-handed it but you could trace it out on some paper first using the pattern neckline as the inside edge
I think I did something wrong. I read in your instructions to tape six pieces together to make the front and three to make the back. When I download it there are only four pages for the front and two for the back. Also, What is “back piece 3,” “front piece 3,” and “front piece 6” for? I don’t see the use of any of those in your instructions. I’m sure I’m just confused!!
The front has 6 pieces that you tape together to form the full size piece and then you cut it out.
This is the best costume of Kristoff I have seen so far! My daughter wants an Anna costume and so of course I have to make my son a Kristoff costume – but he’s 6 … I will take your advice in the comment above mine to find a t-shirt that fits him well and make a tunic from that. Can’t wait! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks for the Kristoff pattern. You saved the day! I had tried just winging it, but that hadn’t worked. I was able to rescue my fabric and use your pattern to fix everything. 🙂
Glad it could save the day 🙂
Love this! Having to size it down to a 3mo. Any suggestions? Im brand new to sewing, just got mynfirst machine and thought making my 3mo a Halloween costume to match his big sisters who are Anna and Elsa would be easy with some felt and liquid stitches. Apparently liquid stitches don’t work so well on felt! So I’ll be attempting your pattern. Hope I can properly down size it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I started from a t-shirt pattern so I’d grab a shirt that fits him well and use that as a guide to draw the general shape
