Merida and me waiting for spring.


Scar
Name: Scar (from The Lion King) Pattern: Alvernia Dress from Opian Fabric: Lace my parents got me from India, and black cotton satin from Stoff & Stil. …But, when it comes to brute strength… I’m afraid I’m at the shallow end of the gene pool.” I hadn’t heard about Opian before they sent me an email to look at their sewing patterns. I purchased the Alvernia pattern and didn’t have the time for it until now recently. I didn’t know […]

*Patterntesting Name: Tom & Jerry Pattern: Karri dress from Megan Nielsen Patterns Fabric: Navy jacquard / different colored cotton sateen from Stoff og Stil I have been so lucky to be one of Megan Nielsen pattern testers for this dress.

Zazu
*Patterntesting Name: Zazu (from The Lion King) Pattern: Alix Dress from By Hand London Fabric: Viscose crepe from Vietnam “Chimps are going ape, giraffes remain above it all. Elephants remember, though just what I can’t recall. Crocodiles are snapping up fresh offers from the banks.

Alice
Name: Alice (Alice in Wonderland) Pattern: Macaron dress from Colette Patterns Fabric: Ikea curtains and pink party sateen for my sister and light blue cotton curtains for me. Background story of the two Macaron dresses: I made this dress for me as a muslin last summer, why?

Rex
  Name: Rex (from Toy Story) Pattern: Emery dress from Christine Haynes Patterns Fabric: Dark turquoise with flowers from Stoff og Stil Rex looks totally fierce with his badass Tyrannosaurus rex looks, but when you hear him speak and get to know him, he is so gentle, adorable and cute.

Fierce, gentle and totally insecure.
