New from Loungefly’s dress shop is the Stitch Shoppe Fantasia Collection. Three featured pieces reminisce on vintage silhouettes and our favorite magical mouse.
Fantasia’s 80th anniversary looms large this month, as the film debuted to national audiences in theatres on November 13, 1940. Find these items soon in the Disney merchandise section of The Stitch Shoppe website.
The Stitch Shoppe Fantasia Collection
The Stitch Shoppe’s initial release focused on one or two simple silhouettes, designed to be universally flattering. As subsequent collections rolled out, Loungefly altered silhouettes with longer hemlines, adding wider shoulders, a men’s shirt, and even handbags! The Fantasia Collection from The Stitch Shoppe by Loungefly goes on sale on November 11th, 2020 at 9 am PST. Coming in sizes from XS-4X shop right on Loungefly’s website.
The Disney Lifestylers tell us that the main feature, the Sorcerer dress, features a brand new silhouette for Loungefly as well as a new neckline. Fantasia came out in 1940, so this collared look with a neck bow is perfect for the era. The dress also has sheer star printed sleeves, which surprises us, because that’s not period, nor does the illustration hint at sheer fabrics. We thought it was a lighter weight fabric with perhaps velvet appliques, but no – it’s going to be sheer. That’s a choice… we hope the boldness pays off.
The hemline dances with Sorcerer Mickey commanding his broom army with buckets of water. There is no sneak peek of the backside of the dress, so we assume the pattern will continue all the way around.
Similar to the dress, the Sorcerer skirt in Loungefly’s Sandy style swishes with a star print over the same Sorcerer and broom motif. These skirts appear to be woven but actually are a stretch sateen with 3% spandex – a little more than modern jeans. Most customers will find this skirt hits just below the knee and in the back, offers a button closure with an elastic cinch. This makes for a tidy waistline in the retro style. Add a petticoat or a crinoline for extra-vintage flair. Red would bring out Mickey’s robe!
Lastly, we dug up more details on the sneak peek of the Fantasia Collection debuted by The Disney Lifestylers. Not only will the collection feature a dress and a skirt, but also a slim-fitting knit shirt to pair with the skirt. While this illustration looks extremely pink, The Disney Lifestylers tell us it will actually be a lovely red color and will complement the Fantasia sandy skirt well. Tuck in the broomstick motif Stitch Shoppe Fantasia shirt for a sweet look all year round.
