Mix & Match Monday - Enter To Win! Sept. 23rd-30th

Hi everyone, 

Enter To Win! Which Look Is Best? Vote Now!

This week's giveaway includes two unique stylings of the Dragonfly Fairy Wings pattern for 18-inch dolls! What do you think of our two looks? Be sure to vote to help us decide which look is best and be entered into the giveaway to win the outfits featured in both looks! (*Note - the dolls are not included in the giveaway.)

More About The Mix Up:  This week we have a cute mix and match set that features the Dragonfly Fairy Wings made by Jerri Ellis, the designer of the Miss Cakes Closet patterns, as the prototype piece for the pattern! We've mixed it with several other Pixie Faire pattern designs to create two unique looks!

The giveaway includes:

  • The Woodland Fairy Outfit - this outfit features the wings paired with a sweet princess dress made using the pattern hack in the Sewing Costumes course. The dress has a knit top, fold over elastic straps, and a soft flowing sparkle mesh skirt overlay. The look is accessorized with a pair of sparkly slip-on shoes (American Girl Brand) and a tiny little butterfly!
  • The Fairy Princess Outfit - this outfit features the wings paired with a beautiful version of the Grand Supreme Pagent outfit made by Genine herself, and featured in the pattern! The outfit includes a corset style top accented with sparkly sequins and an off the shoulder ruffle. It's paired with a separate skirt with sequined fabric waistband and super fluffy organza ruffles. The look is completed with a tiny glitzy tiara, white flats, and ruffle lacy socks!

      More about Jerri and Miss Cakes Closet (in her own words):

      "Although born in California, I've lived in the beautiful state of Oregon since I was 6. I grew up in the county swimming in the creeks, playing in the wood and picking berries for school clothes money in the summer.  And loving the costume movies of the 60s and 70s - how can anyone forget Liz Taylor as Cleopatra?  Edith Head was my and still is my idol! With Bob Mackey a close second. As a voracious reader my Grandfather, who read 5-6 books at a time, introduced me to Anne McCaffrey and the Dragon Riders of Pern and Ursula Le Guin and the Earthsea books when I was about 12. This turned into a life long love of reading and history. 
      This was also about the time I discovered fashion and costume history. Sewing since about 6 years old started I turning scraps of fabric into dramatic Barbie and Skipper clothes. In high school, I constructed costumes and scenery for every play they would let me.  Later I completed my degree at the Eastern Oregon University in Costume and Scenic Design. Returning to the Portland area with my daughter, Katelyn, I started working at a local community college in the student services area. When I retired I worked in veteran services with up to 400 veterans a term accessing their benefits.  
      I'm retired now and enjoy sewing and creating at multiple levels with multiple medias.  I am a self-confessed collector of fine fabrics and craft supplies.  This collecting hobby has nothing to do with sewing - that is a totally different hobby! But I still make costumes - both for my daughter and the love of my life, Escher, my 5 year old grandson. A knight is on the drawing board for Halloween. My favorite holiday."

       

      Inquiring minds want to know:
      Q: What's your favorite food:
      A: I love dark chocolate - especially on smoky crisp pepper bacon
      Q: What's your favorite place to shop:
      A: I love my weekly trip to Starbucks - a skinny mocha, extra hot and a quiet hour with Pinterest!  I also love books - I have quite a diverse reading list
      Q: What's your dream vacation:
      A: My dream vacation is a trip to Scotland, England, and France - then a quick hop over to New Zealand!
      Q: What else might we want to know? 
      A: I love working with our Pixie Faire pattern testers - they are so knowledgeable and wonderful to work with!

       

      We'd love to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell us - which look is best! And be sure to thank Jerri, Genine, and the Pixie Faire team for giving away such cute outfits!

      Thanks, everyone!

      Thank you Jerri, Genine and the Pixie Faire Team for creating such cute outfits featuring the Dragonfly Fairy Wings. I think the Dragonfly Fairy Wings are so unbelievably adorable! Anyway, the look I like best is the Woodland Fairy one since I like how simple that outfit is compared to the Fairy Princess one. Plus, I think the Dragonfly Fairy Wings go better with the dress used to create that outfit than the dress used to create the Fairy Princess look. Once again, thanks for coming up with such cute unique stylings featuring the Dragonfly Fairy Wings. And thanks for the fantastic opportunity to win!

      I voted for the fairy princess. All those frills and furbelows were exactly what I adored about images of fairies when I was a kid. I’d’ve LOVED having such an outfit for my dolls (and even recall drawing such an outfit for a paper doll, way back then. ) Thank you so much for the trip back in time and fantasy.
