New Ariel Design and Outfit

Ariel 1

This bright little outfit features one of Disney’s favorite princesses, Ariel.  Another new Brother design, it is impressively fresh and current.

The pattern for the top is the girl’s jumper from Applique, Martha’s Favorites.

I’ve used this pattern so many times and still find new uses and variations for it.  Directions for the quick and easy jumper include instructions for lining the garment. I chose not to do that, instead lining only  the bodice with orange polka dot fabric which was also used on the pant ruffle.

The fabric is white Swiss pique,  trimmed with piping made from the Ariel fabric used for the pants ruffle.  Orange rick rack was also added into the mix.

The embroidery is embellished with turquois  “gems” hot fixed to many of the bubbles.  Finding the starfish buttons in my stash was a nice surprise.

I’ve got about 10 projects going now.  What are you sewing?

  1. This is sew adorable! The colors – everything about it – just reaches out and says FUN. I saw the fantastic new Brother Dream machine at our state fair on 9/9. The new Disney designs are very appealing. Too appealing. Now I see your little outfits using those same designs! You make such neat outfits for your grand kids….

  2. Oh, Nananeva, I’m glad you like it. Sometimes, I have a hard time making something with such bright colors but I’m trying to become more current. These new Disney designs make it easy. Isn’t that Dream machine a dream? One of my favorite new features is the My Custom Stitch which allows you to import stitches from the on-board machine sewing-side menu and then tweak them and add to others or the stitches you have created. It is a fabulous machine.

  3. That is such a cute outfit. The Ariel design is impressive. I love that this one has almost a watercolor look to it.

  4. Cheryle, the design really is delightful. For all those stitches–26,412–it looks and feels light. I was surprised at the “watercolor” look and unstitched areas within the outline of Ariel’s fish tail. But I really like the look.

  5. You’re hot-fixing rhinestones to things, now?! Awesome.

  6. Jo, I’m stepping up. Woohoo!
