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…

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 temperature for leggings in January.

I am working on finishing up my Fall Mini Capsule this week so my next post will be on the nine pieces I created for that. Two of the pieces might look familiar since they were included in this post!

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 #1.5 - Stained Glass Timeless Tunic

It has been a while since I’ve posted any outfit updates. There has been a few outfits that I worked on modifying a bit now that I have gotten better at sewing. The first outfit I modified was my Stained Glass Timeless Tunic. 


You can find the Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic Pattern here.


For my modification, I separated the bodice and the skirt and re-attached them to an external black elastic waistband. I am very happy with how these modifications turned out. I feel this dress is much more flattering. 


My next post will be another modification!

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 …
