A 19-year-old is captivating TikTok with her fairy-tale fashions.
Alexandra Sorenson of Washington state doesn't need a magic wand or a fairy godmother to create princess dresses; she sews them all herself.
Sorenson, who started sewing as a pandemic hobby, has been documenting the making of her own Disney princess dresses on TikTok, from cutting her own patterns and sewing all her designs in her workshop at home.
"Right in the middle of quarantine, I was super bored and saw a dress online that I wanted to make. Something made me want to do it, so I just figured out how to sew it and from there, it was so much fun that I just kept doing it," Sorenson told "GMA."
She first went viral with her Belle-inspired ball gown in 2020 and since then has created dozens of different looks from Mary Poppins to Mirabel from "Encanto." Now she regularly shares her magical creations and the entire creative dress-making process with her 1.6 million followers on the popular social media app.
"I have seen other creators on TikTok doing similar things and it seemed like a really cool and fun way to share what I was doing so I decided to try my hand at it and started posting videos of my journey and it kind of started taking off,” Sorenson said.
In a recent TikTok, Sorenson explained how she tries to make dresses as realistic as possible. When she was unable to find the fabric color to make Elsa's dress from "Frozen," she took matters into her own hands and tested the gradient dyes until she reached the perfect color.
This up-and-coming seamstress doesn’t stop at making Disney dresses. She has also put together what she would wear to the 2022 Oscars red carpet, gowns inspired by Barbies, Harry Potter house-inspired costumes and more.
Now Sorenson said she wants to make her hobby into a career.
“In the future, I would like to maybe do costuming for movies or Broadway or something like that, but for the near future, I’d really like to just keep focusing on social media and content creation,” Sorenson said.
Disney is the parent company of ABC News and Good Morning America.
