Test Driving our Disney Shirts

DSC 5616

I started this endeavor with the crazy idea of making custom shirts for my own sons for our Disney World trip. We are going in about a month and a half, but I started sewing them clothing for the trip months ago. What started as one shirt each has exploded  into not only an entire Disney-themed wardrobe for them, a handful of things for the parents and our friends, but a whole working-from-home business.

Of the shirts I have made for our trip, I have only let my boys try one set on, and only briefly. I really don’t want them ruined before our trip, so they are quarantined until then. I made an exception this week, though, since we were invited to a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party for another twin family. I made the girls their Minnie birthday dresses, which they loved and looked so cute in for their party. I let my boys wear Mickey Mouse shirts I made. And of course they got pink frosting on them. Sigh. Luckily, nothing that didn’t wash away, thankfully.

And now, the inspiration for Just Joshin, my sons Justin and Joshua in their Mickey Mouse shirt test run (and the adorable newly 3-year-old girls.)

Ruffled

DSC 5526

I just finished two dresses for a Minnie Mouse birthday party, twin girls turning three. These were a custom order, based on their Mom’s request for pink Minnie dresses for their party. For me, it was my first foray into ruffles. The nice thing about making clothing for twins is you get a lot of extra practice! I was able to quickly master the shirt pattern I made for my boys, and these dresses were no different. By the second one I was a ruffling master. I can’t wait to see the birthday girls in their adorable dresses. I hope the love them as much as I do.
