A sewing update

Wow, two updates in one day! I just wanted to show you the latest Disney outfits emerging from my sewing room! The first is a trial run of a new pattern. It was difficult because it had very little in the way of directions. I ended up being directed to another blogger who had a tutorial. Thank goodness.
So here it is...very ruffly and twirly....

I am not sure where she'll wear this to when we are at Disney. I would really like to make a Cinderella and Belle inspired dress with this pattern and some applique designs. I really loved making the ruffles and learning how to use my rolled hem foot. So much to still learn......

Here is some pretty quilting fabric I ordered....not sure what I am going to do with it just yet...but isn't it lovely to look at!

Here are the two new patterns I am trying to learn.... the one on the right is the dress above.

Here is my latest creation....I took a fabric book (make it yourself). It was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I bought some cute fabric and cut out the pages of the book. Here I am getting ready to stitch them down the skirt peices.....

Sorry, a little out of order here. I also made an Ariel a-line top for my older daughter to wear to Hollywood Studios. It looks cute with capris or leggins. I shirred the top and appliqued the figures on. Believe it or not, the figures were from a pillow-case!
This is the front....

This is the back...

I gotta get her to model it for you!

Here is the complete MMCH dress. Brooklyn modeled it with Minnie her friend!


Isn't it darling? It's also for our Hollywood Studios day. I still need to make a Belle dress for Devon! And we already have those Toy Story outfits for that day too. Hahahaha, we will match most of the attractions for the day!

Ok so that is it for now. I ordered some really cute designs today and will be getting some more so I can start stitching out all the things that are swimming around in my head. Summer is finally coming and hopefully I can get the rest of the sewing done for Disney in the next two months.


  1. Beautiful outfits! That Feliz is challenging, but OH SO WORTH IT! Love your storybook outfit too!
