Arora's Fairy Godmothers
The three fairies in Disney's Sleeping Beauty
created a gown for Arora's
(the princess they raised) 16th birthday.
They had worked hard to keep their magic a secret from her
until they begin construction of a dress.
Pinning, draping and sewing the dress was a true struggle for them, so they took their wands from the safe and
created a dress the easy way.
An option I WISH I HAD in clothing construction class!
They couldn't decide on a color but finally the stubborn pink one changed the dress at the last second as Arora walked into the room.
This shows that all though they had good intentions,
not all caretakers were master seamstresses
back in the day.
Cinderella's animal companions
When Cinderella was promised she could attend the Prince's Ball
if she had something nice to wear,
she immediately started the construction of her gown.
Her evil Step Mother and Step Sisters noticed her progress and
eagerly gave her an unending amount of chores.
She worked as hard as she could, but would never have had a dress if it weren't for her little furry friends. They finished her gown with
flying trapeze artist execution.
All while singing gleefully and reminding the male mice and birds
that they should "leave the sewing to the women"
which could be construed as them knowing whats best or that sewing is a gender assigned job for women only. After all their work, the evil stepsisters rip up Cinderella's dress in a jealous rage. They won't find love until the 3rd movie so, they surely learned their
lesson of manners in time.
