We had a great time at Fall Dapper Day at Disneyland! It was lovely to see so many lovely vintage inspired outfits and Disneybounds! We went for several days but Friday had the most people dressed up as it was the official main day.

I wanted something cute and easy to make for me and the twins so I decided to make “poodle” skirts with Disney themed designs. For me, I decided to do Beauty and the Beast, one of my all-time favorites. I love tea cups, so I thought it would be fun to do a Mrs. Potts, Chip and the other tea cups design. I wore this with my Beauty and the Beast bell jar necklace, the white Colette Patterns Jasmine shirt I made and Bass oxford shoes.

I let the twins pick out what color skirt and design they wanted for their poodle skirt outfits. They requested a yellow Finding Nemo skirt and a pink Rapunzel skirt.

For all our skirts, I used a felt Poodle skirt pattern for the skirts and cut the designs out of felt and applied them to the skirt with fabric glue. The Rapunzel and Nemo patches I bought off Etsy to save me overall crafting time. I made the Mrs. Potts and teacup felt appliqués myself. The girls loved their skirts with their favorite characters on them. I’ll probably do a tutorial video later so stay tuned for that!

Here’s a video Michelle did about our trip:

My second outfit for another day was one of the Mary Blair dresses from PinupGirl Boutique! I’d been admiring this print for a long time and really enjoyed wearing it. I got the fascinator in downtown Los Angeles Santee Alley. The cardigan from Target and the shoes from Re-Mix Vintage.
