It’s almost 2015…! I hope you had a great year. Thanks for following me! ūüôā

Here’s a few of my favorite artworks I did! A lot of Sailor Moon this year! I got tired thumbnailing all the sewing projects so here’s just a few of my favorite artworks instead of all of them from this year.

Here’s to making a ton of silly things next year, too!

Just a quick post! I finished my cotton plaid Colette Dahlia pattern dress!

It’s not exactly adventurous of me to make a plaid dress when one of the sample dresses was plaid, but I had already wanted to make a plaid dress and loved how their’s looked! I also loved that I was able to find this fabric for $2 a yard. Score! The pattern went together pretty easily and I liked how it was designed to work well with stripes and plaids. They even have a special PDF for tips for matching stripes and plaids. I added pockets. ūüôā

Pinup Parade 2014 at Disneyland with Pinup Girl Clothing!

I bought a beautiful Aurora Castle Print dress from Pinup Girl Clothing a few months ago.¬†Since we recently got annual passes to Disneyland I wasn’t going to miss the Pinup Parade event at the park this week! It’s a twice annual event. I really love vintage and retro style so it was a real treat to enjoy the park with lots of other folks in lovely outfits. On top of the fun pinup style¬†a lot of people also combine it¬†with “Disney Bounding” which is when you do a fun outfit inspired by a Disney character.

I decided to take my Aurora dress and do a Sleeping Beauty inspired coordinate/DisneyBound. (Make it blue!) It was an obvious but fun choice for me especially since Disneyland’s castle is Sleeping Beauty’s. I added a gold necklace a Baby, The Stars Shine Bright tiara and the Sleeping Beauty gold book pin I got from the Reagan Library Disney exhibit and wore them with my Leifsdottir sweater. I loved little girls’ reactions to my dress especially. This dress is really perfect. I can feel like¬†Disney princess in the parks as an adult without having to wear a costume. ¬†Magical!¬†So many park attendees were curious about the fashion and complimentary. Just good feelings all around!

My twin babies picked out their own dresses for the day which happened to be two blue princess dresses, so we looked pretty cute matching together!

Twin mom life!

Both baby AND mommy can have a pretty dress. One of the nice things about this dress is that it really was comfortable and practical for a day at the park with my family, not just for dress up pictures.
