Last week my family and I took our first trip to Disneyland. The minute the girls were tall enough to go on all of the rides we booked our trip.
I wasn’t planning on making us special outfits for the occasion but when I saw this princess comic fabric my nerdy little heart just exploded with joy. Unfortunately this JoAnn Fabrics fabric isn’t available in all stores. Thankfully though I have a network of fellow crafters and seamstresses who were able to get a couple yards to me. I owe them a cookie.
Most of the solid fabrics you see are are cotton lycra from the ever lovely Purpleseamstress.
I let the girls pick the colors and designs that they wanted for their shirts. My oldest picked the Cecille Top from the now sadly closed LilyGiggle. It’s a really fun top with puffy sleeve and a two layer peplum.
My youngest has a bit more sporty style so she picked the Yoho Henley from Patterns for Pirates. Her favorite color is green and luckily I had some green jersey knit laying around for the sleeves and outer hood. She also wanted thumbholes in the cuffs and since sewing thumbholes makes me feel like a superhero I was happy to oblige.
And for myself….a simple but fun and bright 3/4 length sleeve raglan. My go-to raglan pattern is the Slim Fit Raglan from Patterns for Pirates. It’s got just the right amount of ease to fit my body without being tight.
Like this style of top but don’t have time to sew? I have a few variations in the Women’s Clothing section of my Etsy store.
