Wonderful World of Disney Sewing – Princesses

Standard

This has been a good year for finding Disney fabrics that are a little more artistic and subtle than the usual cartoonish fabrics that have always been available.

The first top is made from the Children’s Corner Abbie pattern.  It is a lined tunic that sewed together very quickly.  The fabric is called Fashionable Princesses Word Badge and was from Joann’s Fabrics.  This kind of fabric seems to show up randomly there and disappears pretty quickly. 0817151439

The second top is the Oliver and S Puppet Show Tunic made with another Joann’s find.  The Disney fabric this time is Disney Watercolor Princess Patch.  Again, I only saw this fabric one time at Joann’s and haven’t seen it since.

It’s great to see Disney licensing different styles of fabric, but now, it would be nice to see the manufacturer/distributors branch out and offer a greater variety of substrates other than fleece and quilting weight cotton.
