The other day, I had a random urge to look at some sewing patterns, only to find that the website (McCalls, Butterick, and Vogue) was having a huge sale! And by huge, I mean nothing was over four bucks, and most of the patterns I got were under $2. So I bought 15 patterns. I was actually going to buy 16, but the shipping went up $8, so I had to decide which I liked more: the somewhat more practical blazer, or the completely awesome Renaissance style dress. The Renaissance gown won, of course.
The patterns arrived yesterday and I am so insanely excited!
And there's more exciting news as well! I got glasses! I'm still trying to get used to them, as I've never had glasses before. My family, who have all had glasses for years, made fun of me because I was constantly raising and lowering my glasses trying to see the difference. (It's a very slight prescription, basically just a magnifying glass for far away objects.)
In other exciting news, my parents recently informed us that we're going to Disney World this Christmas break! I cannot even begin to explain how super excited I am! I don't really remember much from our last trip to Disney, about six years ago. To make things even more exciting, we're also visiting Harry Potter World! There is so much excitement I can't even contain it!
I've decided that I want to make Disney princess outfits to wear at Disney, because I think it's silly that generally only little kids dress up. I'm definitely thinking about a Merida dress (I have a medieval dress pattern), a provincial Belle outfit (my favorite princess!), an Alice dress, and shortened versions of Ariel's pink dress and maybe Cinderella's dress.
I found a thing online that matches the different Myers-Briggs personality types with Disney characters. I am the same personality type as Belle, my older sister is Tiana, my brother is Roger from 101 Dalmations, and my little sister is Peter Pan. I was more interested in the fact that Sarah (older sis) is the exact opposite of Jack Sparrow and Sam (brother) is the opposite of Gaston.
Well, that's all the interesting things I can think of for today. Have a lovely weekend!
