I have joined another seamstress team for sewing up samples of custom fabric prints to advertise for their new rounds. These are from The Fabric Cottage, and this round includes Disney Villains. She sent me a 1/4 yard of the coordinate and an adult panel of Maleficent. I didn’t think that the coordinate went as well with this panel, so I made two different things.
First, I made a peplum top with the coordinate (my pattern draft). It is a 3/4 sleeve, and I put one of the portraits in the center front as an applique. I backed it with Heat n’ Bond, and fixed it with a satin stitch on the edge.
I don’t know why this is so blurry! Ugh.
The peplum is two layers of a light-weight athletic mesh. Unhemmed, as I didn’t think it needed to be hemmed, and I offset them a bit.
She needed bottoms to go with this top, and this turquoise metallic mermaid print went very well with the background of the villians coordinate. Not sure they really match subject-wise, but they look cute together! The pattern for the leggings is from the 5 out of 4 Shenanigans skort. I should have gone a little wider with them, though, since this fabric doesn’t really stretch as much as a knit. They are a bit tight! If she is uncomfortable wearing them, I will likely just cut them apart and do blocked leggings with some black knit.
The panel needed to become a tunic for the girl. I could have made something for myself, but I knew she would wear it more. I made a cosplay for her of Maleficent a few years back.
I had the greens already in my fabric stash (I just needed to find them!), so I just needed a pattern. I drew this up, and it mostly worked. I just needed to add one more layer on the bottom of the side seam, since it ended up too short. An easy fix.
This turned out so cute!
She can wear a pair of her black volleyball shorts underneath during summer if she wants to do cartwheels or handstands (she will). Here she is wearing it with some black leggings.
The pre-order for these fabrics will open up in the group on April 28th if you want to order some of these villains.
I personally love Maleficent and Cruella. There is also some other prints that are adorable. I like the Monsters, Inc. ones, and the Sully fur is so cute as fabric.
