(Disney Sewing) Crystal Palace Outfits

We always seem to end up eating lunch at Crystal Palace (located in Magic Kingdom) and this upcoming trip will be no exception.  I gave the girls the option of choosing which characters they would want to represent (sounds like they are in some type of gang) and what they would want (dress? skirt? shirt only?)  I started with Emily's first, as it was the easiest.


Piglet on a tank top with a 3 layer maxi (I sometimes call them prairie) skirt.



Her photos also ended up being the easiest to take.


Allie's second love, after Elmo, is her stuffed Eeyore, so her choice was obvious.  This dress was a bit of an experiment.  I want to use the pattern for other dresses but wasn't quite sure how it would turn out.  I did make some adjustments to the original pattern and it was a perfect fit.




Anna is usually picky when I'm sewing something for her and it has to be made exactly to her specifications.  She went back and forth on what she wanted and surprisingly, ended up asking for the same shirt as Emily but with a simple skirt.  She doesn't like long skirts - I think they make it more difficult for her to get around.    


I've come to conclusion that perfect photography of clothes with 3 kids is near impossible.  First of all, they have to be clean, not for the photos but so that the clothes don't get ruined, and they have to cooperate, which they usually do.  There's just a lot of monkey business that goes on behind the scenes.   I'll have to post some of the photos so you can see exactly what I'm referring to.  And then I need to find somewhere to take the photos because that's just the way I am.  There's only one empty wall in the house and I've to move furniture and a rug so that isn't really a viable option.  The lighting for Emily's photos was perfect - the middle of an overcast, but not dark, day.  For Allie's and Anna's, it was much later in the day, and the light was just odd.  Oh, well.  Life isn't a photo shoot.

You make the cutest things for your daughters. Don't know how you find the time, but the final products are adorable, as are your daughters.
