Okay, I just checked the playhouse disney live on tour website and jojo is not in the show. I guess I need a Little Einsteins outfit too.
Gracie is going to wear the Jojo outfit anyway since we'll be dining with her and Little Einsteins is not a hit around here yet.

We will have to meet up somewhere. We can get a picture of them together and post it here.

okay, lets see if this works. This was my daughter as Annie last year at Halloween. She even carried Rocket and I think only two kids knew who she was I'll get my Minnie and Nemo outfits up tomorrow.

I'll post some bows later.. I just keep thinking about how much money I am saving from buying them elsewhere! (That is what I told DH when I came home with a bag FULL of ribbon )

If anyone could point me in a direction of learning how to applique I would be forever in your debt! (Next to Disney of course)

I have never really seen Little Einsteins, but DS loves them. I think if I saw her alone I wouldn't have known, but the rocket totally gives it away! I would know in a heartbeat! BTW, she is adorable! Does everyone on this thread have cute kids?

I'm about to get started on my first stripwork outfit for my twins. I'm a bit -- wish me luck and pixie dust because I think I'm gonna need it!

The theme is Disney Princesses!

I am looking for some ideas for our Disney Cruise in Sept. I would really like to make a sailor dress or something nautical. I can't seem to find any good patterns like that. Everyone here has some neat designs so I thought I would check here. My dd is 11 but does still like to wear dresses (which is great for me!). Thank you!

First off-
LadyRob- You are my new hero! Every outfit you have done is amazing- and am I wrong in remembering you really havnt been sewing that long? The Minnie outfit is just tremendous- BRAVO!!!!

Someone mentioned that their kids dont wear their Disney clothes around the house...what is everyone's consensus on this???? Do your kids wear these clothes at home- or are they saved just for Disney? As much as I adore Disney- we cant go more then every other year or so...I love these outfits- but will it be silly to wear them around Iowa??? The only one I have done so far is Laila's bday dress for her Minnie party- and I am still not done yet- the party is Sunday so I better get scootin'

Well, most of my girls stuff is a little more simple, some is more elaborate, but we wear it all the time. Now, that being said, I live in central FL, about 1.5 hrs from Disney. And, everyone, friends and family, know that we're a Disney family, so they just expect it. Heck, my DH has multiple Disney tropical shirts (the ones from Disneyshopping.com) and he wears them all the time. I think that if your children love Disney, and you've used the outfit for your vacation, then by all means, let them wear it. Otherwise, they'll grow out of it.

The only other option that I see for keeping them in really good shape, is if your plan is to resell them. There is quite a market for that, and you could get some of your initial "investment" back if you resell.

Just a thought...

The 15th of Sept?? Or July??

I work at the Studios. Well, I'm taking the summer off, but this past spring I was looking for custom outfits and never saw any. I figured it was because I was at MGM, and because I'm not back in the Animation Courtyard. However, come fall, when I go back, I will once again be on the lookout for the outfits I've seen posted here.

Your outfits are always so cute ! ! ! Did you make this like a twirl skirt? is that how that works out, or did you have a patter to work off of?

The Minnie ears look a little warped in the picture but that's just how the dress is hanging. I wish I could post pics of DD in the outfit but I've promised DH I would not post pics of the kids anymore.

You can, but it gets tricky when gathering over the pins. Ouch! I gather the whole thing up so they are the same length, then skooch it around to make the points match.
