Super belated post: Sephira's 3rd birthday outfit

Hey there all!  I just realized that I never actually posted about Sephira's 3rd Birthday outfit!  The little miss requested that it look like Princess Caterina from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, one of her two favorite shows!  
I used a couple of patterns from A Sunny Spot Japanese Sewing Pattern Book that I love and played around with the color blocking to be reminiscent of Princess Caterina's outfit. I, of course, made her buttons too and the little kitty ears headband!  Oh and I made her a tail! ^_^
 I took a couple of gratuitous pictures of baby Akira as well, one of which she is holding a Princess Caterina doll!
And yeah, that's that!
In other news, Max and I are taking a little Sew Geeky break till May.  BUT, you will see me contributing to the Sewing Rabbit blog (aka Me Sew Crazy) as part of the 2015 team!  Squee!!!!!

many many smooches,

Sew Geeky Episode 8: EPIC FANTASY!

It’s the 25th!!!  So you know what that means: SEW GEEKY!  This month’s theme is Epic Fantasy inspired.  Think Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, or really anything that would conjure up visions of enchantment. 

First and foremost, I knew I wanted to make Akira a faun… Just the thought of her little chubby belly rolls brings a smile to my face. Next I thought about this Elm poncho I had just finished making Azriella.  Being a Portlandian, rain gear is not a fun accessory, it’s a necessity, and the one I made is a bit on the fanciful side I think!  Lastly, I thought, well, Sephira should be something!  And, honey, let me tell you, she is not a fan of anything that not Doc McStuffins, Sophia the First, or anything with flowers.  FLOWERS! Yes!  I’ll make her a glorious, super girly, faerie dress.  Something that embodies the word ethereal. She oddly enough doesn’t have a ton of frilly dresses so I thought that this was a great opportunity to remedy that! 

So I am just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Sephira’s Faerie Dress

Dress Pattern- Figgy’s Ethereal Dress with double bodice frill and edited skirt to feature an off center square circle skirt with a gauzy ivory circle underskirt. Hems were bound with vinyl, stretch, copper binding.

Chiffon Butterfly Wings- self drafted

Floral Crown- self constructed

Azriella’s Woodland Poncho

Poncho Pattern:  Petita Petit + Family’s Elm Poncho with Velcro closure.  It features welt pockets and bear ears in this pretty Tula Pink laminated cotton.
Akira’s Faun Outfit

Pants Pattern: sized up from Sew Much Ado’s Footed NewbornPants (love!) to approximately 9 months.  I also added a little faun tail.

Hat: Fur Hood pattern by A Lemon Squeezy Home in size extra small.  I lined it in floral broadcloths and used the wolf ears but brought them down a bit and pleated them.  I also made little quilted brown antler nubbins. 

Look at dem rolls! I love em!!!!  We did manage a few out-takes as well.

So!  Go and check out more Epic Fantasy wonderments sewn by our guests below!

And that's a wrap!  What do you think?!  
Next month:  Tim Burton  inspired just in time for Christmas!!! 
Until then!

-many many smooches,

let others know!
