The week 1 Project Run & Play Challenge was to take the Dana Made It Circle Skirt tutorial and remix it. At first glance it doesn't look like I did much "remixing". But take a second look...
My remixing involved a little polka dot smocking and some hand stitching on the elastic waistband. Word to the wise...polka dot smocking on fabric that is cut on the bias doesn't give you the perfect geometric look of the tutorial. *sniff, sniff* But it's still a cute design feature.
Circle skirts have a lot of fullness.
And a lot of fullness means...
Always a big hit with
the 7 and under crowd all girls because let's face it...if you're wearing a circle skirt you have got to twirl!
The coordinating top is the Badminton from Oliver + S. The Badminton Top (Dress + Skort) is part of their Spring 2012 pattern release. I used a white stretch poplin for the top and the skirt/accent on the top is Children at Play Dot to Dot in Berry.
We had a little friend come by while we were doing pictures...with polka dots to boot!
