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!!!
-many many smooches,
