Countdown of a most important nature

The husband and I are at  75 day mark. What you ask? Well, if you know me, you know my deep devotion to the land of Mouse-based commerce located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.  Our annual pilgrimage is planned, wrestled over, debated and excel spreadsheeted to within an inch of it’s life. This year we are going during our favorite time.  Fall. Halloween at Disney is soooo fun. We also get to graze thru the International Food and Wine Festival. in a later post I will cover the costumes my Sweetie and I will be wearing, but for now, I am in high gear sewing Disney-worthy summer tops. I’m not so much a t-shirt girl, so I have been pouring over Pattern Review and Sew Weekly looking for fun tops.

So far I have 2 new items for the rotation I hope Mickey likes them:

Yes, those are little hidden Mickey buttons (roll your eyes, everyone!)

I’m using up my fat quarters on my fat quarters. Get it? I like at least 2 eye rolls per post- how am I doing?

Today I’m starting on Butterick 5555 in a salmony butterfly print gauze.

I promise no Mickey buttons I’m not crazy, I swear. At night we like to dress up a little for dinner at one of the resorts we can’t afford to sleep at- I think a little capri pant and this top could be annelicious. As usual the fabric is resting under a dachshund:

Liesl and I were watching Torchwood this morning. Multi-tasking at it’s best.

  1. Oooh! A fall vacation at Disney World. How fun! I’m impressed with how far in advance you’re sewing. I’m still hoping to have time to sew a skirt for my summer vacation. But, as I’m leaving next week and have an insane amount of work to do, I have no idea when it will happen. I like that Butterick pattern, and I’m excited to see it done up. Happy sewing!
