This week's entry for the Project Run & Play sewalong at home challenge:
'Sandbridge Top' in Chez Ami cotton/lycra knit
Self Drafted Shorts in Chez Ami brown twill
Clever Charlotte Flutter Blouse in Little Lisette poplin
Oliver + S Badminton Skort in pink jersey knit
O+S Badminton Skort
CC Flutter Blouse
Self Drafted Shorts
I have 4 pieces of clothing in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry (Neapolitan) that mix and match to create 4 different outfits.
The Sandbridge Top is one of my prototypes for the free pattern/tutorial that I put together for Amanda at Kitschy Coo in March. You can find the tutorial HERE if you're interested.:)
For the shorts, I took a pair of RTW ones that had been handed down through at least 3 kids and no longer fit BK and drafted a similar pair. I especially like the back yoke and the half way fly that closes with velcro. Easy Peasy for BK to close!
The hand stitching on the waist band with embroidery floss in vanilla and strawberry ties in with my Neapolitan theme.
Since I love the Flutter Blouse pattern from Clever Charlotte so much, I had to make another. BK has been begging for an 'ice cream' top so this adorable Little Lisette print was the perfect fabric to use.
And I did the keyhole opening correct this time!;)
Since I'd made the Badminton Top last week, I had to give the skort a try. I chose not to do the scallops as I didn't think they would work well on the light weight jersey knit I used. I interfaced the inner front waistband also because of how light weight the fabric is.
You can see the shorts peeking out from under the skirt. I'd say this pattern is made for my active, crazy posing BK!
