Disney Dress: Easter

I apologize, I fell off the blog posting boat while working on my outfits for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weeked. But since I am currently out of fabric from all the outfits I made for that trip and also my upcoming trip to Disney for the Princess Half Marathon, I figured I should start posting some of my outfits again. 
I decided to share the Easter dress I made for myself first since I will not be wearing this dress at Disney. 


The fabric I used was cotton lyrca from BCD fabrics from her surprise Easter retail. I think this fabric is absolutely adorable. I will add the link to the website here and the link to the Facebook page here. Unfortunately there was very limited retail of this fabric so I do not think there is any left. 


For the dress itself, I mashed together the Wiggle Dress and Sweetheart Dress from Patterns for Pirates. 
The top is the off the should top from the Wiggle Dress. I will link the Wiggle Dress pattern here  I love the off the shoulder top, there is elastic stit…

How to Break Lush Bath Bombs

So this is just a quick little post on how I break up my bath bombs to get maximum use out of them. I saw in the lush store that they use knifes to cut them but I like my method better.

By doing this I can get up six uses out of each bath bomb, and I feel I get more out of my money this way. Even with the smaller pieces the water still changes color, smells amazing, and moisturizes. So do not hesitate to break up your bath bombs.

1. Place bath bomb inside a plastic sandwich bag (this is what I store my bath bombs in and this way there is nothing wasted)

2. Place a screw driver onto the bath bomb and hammer the screw driver into the bath bomb with a shoe (yes sad but true, this is how I break my bath bombs)

3. Break it in half, and then break those half pieces again if you would like.

I know this method is a little odd but its just what I found laying around the house. but instead of being able to take 8 lush baths, I can now take 27, which is good considering how expensive the bath bombs are.

Disney Outfit #1 - Stained Glass Timeless Tunic

For my first outfit for my upcoming trip to Disney, I created this beautiful Beauty and the Beast modified Timeless Tunic. This is one of my favorite patterns because it is super flattering for my body type and it uses woven fabric! Which let's be honest, the options for woven fabric are far greater than knit fabric.


The Beauty and the Beast Stained Glass fabric is from Joann Fabric and is 100% cotton.


The pattern I used was a modified Timeless Tunic from Patterns for Pirates. I absolutely love circle skirts, so I thought this fabric would be perfect to try out of my first pattern modification.
You can find the Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic Pattern here.
For this outfit, I actually found the fabric first and then ordered the ears second. I saw this fabric and knew the Yub Nub shop had a pair that would match perfectly.


This pair of ears is one of her printed ears that she designed herself but they can also be purchased in the hand painted version.



I cannot wait to wear this …

Disney Outfit #5 - Gray Minnie Mouse Dress

For my fifth outfit, I almost want to call this the dress that did not happen. Originally when I had purchased my gray Minnie Mouse fabric, I wanted to make a timeless tunic out of it with a solid black top. But, my mom had asked me to make her a mantel cover so I had used my black woven fabric for that. Then, I decided I would use my Minnie Mouse fabric for the skirt portion of the Patterns for Pirates Boundless Dress. Next I decided that I would make the skirt portion a circle skirt. I had cut out the first half of the circle skirt and then realized that I did not have enough fabric to cut out the second half of the circle. I figured I could maybe make it work with a 3/4 circle. After cutting out the 1/4 circle piece I realized that at some point I completely butchered the piece. So I took what fabric I could to best match the original pattern with a little bit of a high low skirt. Sewing is definitely all about learning and that I why I love it so much. 


The fabric for this dress is…

Disney Outfit #2 - Galaxy Pants

For my second outfit for my upcoming trip to Disney, I made this super comfy pair of galaxy leggings and dolman to match my Gaurdians of the Galaxy ears. 

The galaxy fabric used for the leggings is brushed polyester from The Fabric Geeks. The black fabric for the dolman is a knit fabric from Joann fabric. 


The pattern for the leggings I used was the Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs, which can be found here. I also used their contoured waistband add on, which can be found here


The contoured waistband is amazing! I feel it is super flattering for my body type. 
The pattern for the dolman was the Pumpkin Spice Dolman from Patterns for Pirates, which can be found here. I made my dolman with a curved hemline and 3/4 sleeves. 

The Pumpkin Spice Dolman is the perfect length to wear with leggings and is super comfortable. 
My Gaurdians of the Galaxy ears were one of my mystery ears from The Yub Nub Shop. You can purchase the ears here

How cute is baby Groot?

Fingers crossed the weather is the right …
