Dance With Fairies for Love of Legends Blog Tour


I was super excited to be invited to join the Love of Legends blog tour. Mostly because I really do love mythical legends like dragons, monsters and fairies.

 I decided on doing a pixie/fairy theme for my Little Miss. I've always loved stories and novels about these creatures. Ever since I was very small. So why not get my little pixie in on the Love.
Pixies and fairies go back hundreds of years. They are known to be tricky and sneaky. But they will help those in need of help if their desires and genuine. They also are known to have tempers. Some legendary pixies and fairies are Puck from Midsummer Nights Dream or Tinker Bell from Peter Pan.

I have to admit, this wasn't an easy project for . My Little Miss LOVES Tinker Bell but not all fairies are equal. So we had to think more in terms of where and what fairies do.

I settled on using this great floral print fabric in my stash. It screams spring but also, looks just like a headpiece a fairy might wear. So that was our inspiration.


For the top, we went with the Rival Raglan. I was going to do a Tinley Tee but when I saw the stretch lace I knew I wanted it for the sleeves. So the Raglan was perfect. We also used our embroidery machine to add the quote "dance with fairies". Because really who doesn't want to do that?
The skirt is a self drafted yoga band skirt. I'll have a tutorial up soon on how to make your own. Super simple and comfy.

And there you have it. Our legendary inspired outfit. Make sure to check out all the other participating bloggers and even join the sewalong.

  2. I love the touch of the lace sleeves on the raglan. I'll have to keep that idea filed away in my brain. Such a cute outfit!
