I’m so excited to share with you some beautiful photos of my friend Rachel Goldberg of Thanatos Couture’s Cinderella costumes. I just think they are gorgeous. I love fairy tale inspired costumes and the details put into these are just marvelous. You might have seen one of the Evil Stepsister photos floating around on pinterest and tumblr but now there are so many more yummy photos so you can really see more of these wonderful outfits! I can’t wait to see what Rachel makes next.

You can see more photos of Cinderella on Thanatos Couture’s facebook page here and on her portfolio website here (including design sketches and detail embellishment photos!)

Matching Star Wars mommy and twin baby dresses, can we be any more twee?

The pattern I used for my dress was the Washi Dress pattern from Made By Rae. You can see more photos of my Star Wars Washi dress here. The twin’s baby Star Wars dresses were Made By Rae’s Geranium dress pattern. All three dresses were made out of one vintage Star Wars twin sheet (barely.)

We went to visit some friends at Rough Draft Studios. They gave the twins a Futurama Kif and Morbo stuffed doll, which they obviously love. Here’s Miss R with Morbo and Kif.

My parents bought me this beautiful Japanese double gauze fabric for my birthday. It’s Nani Iro Little Letter. The fabric is super soft, almost like a flannel but more breathable. I was excited to try sewing with it.  The pattern I used was the Washi Dress pattern from Made By Rae. The pattern went together so easily and quickly that I ended up making two of them in the same week. You can see my Star Wars Washi dress here.

Note, since I’m taller and didn’t want an underbust empire shape on my dress I added 1 1/2″ to the length of the bodice, lowered the bust dart by about an inch and added about 1 1/2″ to the hem of the dress.

I liked this Washi Dress pattern from Made By Rae so much that I made two dresses with it in the same week! This is my Washi Star Wars Dress made out of a vintage twin Star Wars sheet I’ve had in my stash for a while.  I had just enough scraps left over from this dress to make two twin baby Geranium dresses, too. I’ll show you those later when I have a chance to take more photos. I’m posing with the resin Han Solo blaster I made for my husband.

I’m excited to share these Thumbelina Twin Birthday Geranium Dresses with you!

My twin girls are going to be one year old in a few weeks, wow! I wanted to make something that went together beautifully but quickly for their birthday. After doing some review reading online, it looked like Made By Rae’s Geranium dress pattern would be perfect, and the internet was right. These little dresses went together easily and quickly. If I hadn’t added a bunch of embellishment and been making two of them, I bet I could have made it in a day. As it was, making two frou-frou versions, it took about 2-3 days of naps to complete them.

The white crown lace is from my trip to Okadaya in Japan. The red lace is from fabric.com and the trims are from etsy TreasureBayFabric and TrimKo. There’s also some red rickrack on the bodice to skirt seam. The flower buttons on the back are vintage ones I bought at Costume College. The Thumbelina fabric is a Japanese cotton by Kokka that I got a few years ago. It’s one of my favorites from my stash, but at least I used it for something special! I also embroidered my daughters’ first name initials on the skirts.
