Sewing Along in September!

Hello Everyone!
Hope the September Cold hasn't reached you yet. I didn't get it yet but I am sure its just around the corner! I keep washing my hands hoping to ward it off! LOL!
So I've been trying to keep up with my Disney sewing on the weekends. Here is my latest creation! Again, the pattern is a Simply Sweet by the Scientific Seamstress. The appliques I bought from different Etsy sellers. (Just let me know if you need the resources.) This time I tried to create an underwater honor of Disney's new expansion where they will have Ariel's Underwater Adventure! I then made a beach scene for Prince Eric and his dog Max. 

Here are the skirt pieces before stitching them together...
 I laid out the bodice approximately where it would be centered.

Last night, I sewed everything together! Here is the final dress! I took a bunch of pictures of the skirt from different angles! This dress will be for Devon, who is a big Ariel fan!

What fun! I hope she likes it!

In other exciting news, I am so honored to be featured on the Slice Fabrique blog today! Click here to see!
I made a bag pattern and used my Slice Fabrique to decorate! You know how I love my Slice!!! A big thank you to Jenny for featuring the pattern!!!

Well, I am happily going to get dinner ready and go to yet another back-to-school night! Have a super evening everyone!!!
God Bless,

It's a Small World!

Hello All,
I am very excited to share the latest dress I made for our Disney trip...this time it was Brooklyn's request....It's a Small World dress! For all of these customs, I had ordered fabric from JoAnn Fabrics during a sale and I had purchased applique designs from a variety of places or used what I already had. After cutting out the fabric, I assembled my appliqueing supplies...

 The girls pulled out the horse stuff to play while I sewed....I love that!!

 My thread and applique fabric, spray and iron. I have quite a system!

 I loved these cute designs!!!

The finished appliques ...ready to assemble the dress!

And here is the final dress! This is the front.....

 And then I took a bunch of pictures of the appliques around the dress...

 Close up of the bodice....
 This is the back!
Brooklyn is really excited about wearing this dress! So I checked this one off of my list! Not sure what I am going to work on this weekend. Any guesses???
Have a great Friday!!!!
God Bless,
I am adding in here that the pattern I used, Simply Sweet, is by The Scientific Seamstress and is available here!!
And if you are interested, here is a link to the appliques too! :)
