Should I Learn to Sew?
Have you heard of a little girl named Lane Rouch? (on Instagram as ferdalump) Her sweet momma makes her BEAUTIFUL handmade Disney costumes (seriously, check her out). But even in my wildest dreams I couldn’t imagine myself making such elaborate costumes. But maybe simpler ones?
For our Year of Disney I’m picturing my little one walking around the parks in cute handmade costumes and getting tons of wonderful cast member and guest interaction. I’m sure your asking yourself, why don’t you just buy a Disney-made costume? Well, while the ones Disney makes are cute, the fabrics just don’t look very comfortable. I’m thinking a skater dress type shape made in jersey-like fabric.
The only thing holding me back is the fact that I cannot sew. At all. I asked for (and received) a sewing machine for mother’s day last year, but I haven’t even taken it out of the box. But maybe this is the kick in the pants I need?
