Anyway, there are a couple of links in the bookmarks for making a tied tulle tutu, or you can find several more by googling tutu instructions or tutorial. A lot of them use the 6" wide tulle rolls, but you could cut your own from yardage as well.

Not sure if that is what you had in mind? I think most I've read are saying about 4 - 6 yards for a tutu if you are buying yardage.

Hope that helps. Not sure if I am answering correctly.

If you still wanted to ever consider the nylon chiffon petti there is a website call afc-express.com and they sell it for 1.59 a yard. I used the free petti pattern that CarlaC has on YCMT.com and spent less than $20 including shipping on my dd's. The company shipped super fast and the quality was really nice. I had extra fabric since I had to order full yards but if I made two it would probably be less than 40 since shipping would be combined. The only other thing you would need would be a small piece of satin for the bodice, which I got at Joann's with a coupon, thread, and elastic for the waist.

OK...so today was supposed to be a catch up day. Finishing up a lot of projects I have started, so I can get on with some new projects.

I am making a Snow White dress, using the precious bodice, and a Peek-a-Boo skirt, with an embroidered Dwarf on the Peeking portion. I spent 30 minutes attaching the bodice and skirt together. It was perfect! The gathers were even and perfect! After I finished using the serger, I went to put it on the hanger...where I discovered, I put the skirt on BACKWARDS!!!

Take two...it was going ok, not as perfect as the first time, but OK. After I removed the pins and took it to the serger...I discovered the bobbin thread had ran out about half way through!

Take Three... well, let's just say it is on! No where near perfect...in fact it looks terrible! I put it up...I'll go back to it sometime in a few weeks! Right now, I don't ever want to see it again!


....so how has YOUR day been?


Nini


PS...thanks for the inspiration on the MVMCP...keep 'em coming!

Sadly, tomorrow is forecasted to be rainy (which would mean a gym-day) so she has to wait til Thursday to return, I'm not brave enough to let her go back to the gym on her first day back.

Furthermore, the school has student insurance which means we just have to submit our explanation of benefits and they will reimburse us.
AND we will not have to pay tuition for May.
However, they have "Field Day" on the 28th and have asked that one of us escort Megan. Hannah's surgery is the 25th and I am not sure if she can handle sunshine, so Daddy may take a day off of work so she can attend.
And her last day is June 3rd!!!
Glad to hear Megan is feeling better. I wouldn't worry if she can't make it to field day.

I'm considering going to Disney World on December 12th through 17th or 18th.. Was going to go November 14 through 20th. For some reason it is cheaper in December so that is why I am considering it.
Anything bad about going then? Why is it cheaper??
Disney in December is great. We went at that time about 3 years ago. The crowds are low and the Christmas decorations are great. We went last year in November and left on the day before Thanksgiving. The Christmas decorations were out then and we got to see the Osbourne Lights. The crowds got bigger as we got closer to Thanksgiving. Either time is good but I think the crowds were a little less in December. I remember being a little frazzled after we got home getting ready for Christmas but if you get everything ready before your trip you will be all set. We didn't got to MVMCP either time so I can not comment on that.

Is there a large enough difference b/w the two patterns to buy the Simply Sweet also? I like the strap ruffle on the Simply Sweet, but the rest of the pattern looks about the same.
I have both patterns and they are very similar. I think the Stripwork Jumper has a shorter bodice so it doesn't come to the natural waist like the Simply Sweet.

I'll post the Universal Studios and Disney outfits in a minute.
I love the picture of Tessa and Sawyer. It is the cutest. The outfits are fabulous and I want that skirt! It is perfect for an "ocean" theme. Love the shirt you made for you too. I will not tell you that your kids are getting so big...

Tessa had been bugging me to do that for a long time. When we get home, Tessa probably won't be wearing this shirt with this skirt again. But, you will notice that the flowers on the skirt are like the ones in the background on Spongebob. Also, it was REALLY hard to find yellow t-shirts to applique on! I finally found them at Target.



My niece (she's almost 8, but a couple of inches shorter than Tessa) wanted a Beauty and the Beast outfit for BBB to match Tessa's Cinderella outfit. She wanted a pink one because she loved Tessa's. So, Tessa is modeling her outfit, even though it looks a lot like Tessa's Cinderella outfit. Sawyer wanted the Prince Charming cutie. I offered to put the Beast or Prince Eric on his shirt, even Peter Pan. But, he wanted Prince Charming!



This is a t-shirt for my SIL. She grew up near Disneyland, so she has really fond childhood memories of it.



I'll wear my fairy godmother cutie with the pumpkin coach white t-shirt, so we'll all kind of match.

I know you all wanted to know all of those details.

Henry still refuses to wear anything I make for him. I thought he would go for the 1" American flag Mickey head on a polo shirt. But, it's a no go!
the Sponge Bob shirts are super cute. I love that the skirt works with the Spong Bob shirt and without it. The Disneyland shirt is great. I can't believe you can't talk your husband into the American Flag Mickey on a polo shirt. I guess your description of him as a "Disney Hater" is accurate. Just grab one of those Mickey Mouse stickers you get at the parks and stick it on the back of his shirt.

The girl asked my Mom to hem her wedding gown - for free - three days before Mom was supposed to go on vacation, and she wanted it done ASAP (not sure why - the wedding is still 4 months away?). Anyhow, Mom worked her tail off trying to get it done in those couple of days before she left. It had a 4-layer skirt with 2 sheer layers that were just a pain to hem - they kept leaving little hairs sticking out of the rolled hem, etc. She spent well over 8 hours working on that thing, and dropped it off the day before she was leaving on vacation. The girl answered the door, took a look at Mom holding the dress and said......nothing. Just took the dress and closed the door. I am just so upset for my Mom! The worst part is, she is also supposed to do the cake for them, but now she doesn't even want to do that. She said she'll do it as a gift for the groom's mother, but her heart just isn't in it anymore.

OK, rant over! And I will try not to leave rude remarks on this girl's Facebook page, either.
Why are people so rude? Love the sympathy card idea.

Chase's outfit -

Then for Dallas' class this year!



The boys got cars. I almost went with Wall-E but changed at the last minute. He told me last night they were going to watch Wall E today and today is the day he took them in!


Now onto outfits for us for SWW!
The Thomas outfit is so cute. I love how you did the Tiana shirts. I can't believe you made crayon roll ups for all the kids in Dallas' class. You are a GOOD mom. If you had picked Wall-E they would have watched Cars.

On a Christmas note, I was at Hancock's yesterday and they had some CUTE Disney Christmas fabric. I know there was Mickey, Cars, and Winnie the Pooh. I don't remember seeing these at Christmas time.
This dress is so cute. Love the applique and the layers on the skirt.

I'm so sorry, but you made me laugh. I thought that kind of thing only happened to me.

2 days ago I spent 1 hour looking for the little plastic piece that goes over the bobbin. Why they made it clear, I'll never know. I sit it down on my desk and can't ever find it again.

I think when you put it on backwards you should have insisted it was correct, because you wanted the people behind her to enjoy the dress too!

I hope the rest of your day goes better.

Ohhhh, so pretty. Maybe you should buy a lottery ticket to see if you winning streak continues. You're not going to cut that, are you?

What model Elna do you have? A friend of mine told me that is the brand her mother (a professional seamstress) swears by. As I've looked around, I've seen some for a couple of hundred into the thousands. I have the cheapy Singer from Wally World and it sucks. Can't handle even a ruffle. All I really use it for is for finishing raw edges (like the ruffles above). They aren't even a true rolled hem!

Just realized I had never shared DD4 in her Tiana dress. Not the best photo but here you go!



Love your dresses!!

Thanks. I don't think so, but I will know more after my appt. Wednesday.
Seriously - plane tickets are that cheap. I live in Atlanta, 7 hours away and can't get one way tickets for less than $90. No fair!!!! I'm sorry for your discomfort. Hopefully that sweet baby will be here soon!
