CraftingCon: Sewing Sober

Hey all! I’m Ashley from Sewing Sober. My entry is the last for CraftingCon: Villains, and I am so excited to show you what I have created for this villainous challenge (cue evil cackle: MUAHAHAHA!). We went for something old school from a show that is near[=and dear to my heart.
For those of you who have no clue who these villains are, below are photos of the villains I was achieving. Here you will find “Princess Morbucks” and “Mojo Jojo” from the Cartoon Network show “The Power Puff Girls”. Madison was hooked the moment I showed her my favorite childhood show, and when we were brainstorming about which villain she could be, I shouted out for the spoiled princess, which was then followed by her sister being the evil monkey Mojo Jojo. Voila! Onto the clothing.
Princess Morbucks is a rich, spoiled brat who’s father is a millionaire and blows money on whatever his princess wants. This little villain was born by her wanting to be a Power Puff Girl, so her daddy created an outfit with  gloves that have “all the gizmos and gadgets” as well as some glam and sass.
The dress is a mix of the Geranium dress from Made by Rae and Lulu dress from Craftiness is not Optional. I will say these two patterns are my go to for some awesome pattern hacking. I divided the skirt into two which allowed for the color blocking in the middle. This was the first time I color blocked on my own, and it turned out beautifully.
Lets talk Mojo Jojo shall we? Sweet Cora Jean isn’t too scary looking is this get up, but I just can’t get over how 1. she kept that hat on, and 2. how adorable she looks!
That cape! I die. She is a force to be reckoned with, let me tell you. I self drafted the cape, but that’s pretty self explanatory. The shirt is a Pippa Peplum from See Kate Sew, with a flutter sleeve added to give me a little broadness throughout the shoulder, and an extended sleeve to incorporate the color of Mojo Jojo’s fur.
Here is the best closeup I could get of the hat. It fit great before I added the fabric paint and polish, but once that dried it became hard to stretch, thus only fitting partially on her head 🙁 I am in the midst of remaking a new one that will be more functional for Halloween.
I hope you guys enjoyed my interpretation of CraftingCon: Villains edition. I had such a fun time creating these outfits for my two little girls! And to sum up this post, here is a photo of the two that pretty much summed up how our evening went: madness!
