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 aleksandrajones 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."
