Project Run and Play All Stars Week 2: Triangular-fied

Project Run and Play: Triangular-fied

This week’s outfit for Project Run and Play All Stars (don’t forget to vote for your favorite) was actually the first I began to work on. I think it’s because they sent us fabric for it! haha For week 2, we were each allowed to choose 2 yards of chevron fabric by Riley Blake. I chose the large black and white pattern. I had no idea what I was going to do, but I figured that was a good choice.

I used my baby to model this outfit. I wasn’t sure how pictures were going to go though. Turns out, having paper taped on a wall is a BIG distractions to one year olds ;) Oh, and so are plants.

See? Grabbing papers.

And she just can’t get enough. She kept yelling, “Books! Books!” And I’m like yes, baby. Now lets get some pictures!

We set this up on the kitchen table to make it easier. The window gives good light, although yet again, the day I pick (in advance) for pictures turns out to be a rainy day. We made it work though!

A lot of this outfit was a “make it work” situation though. I at first created the triangle pattern from the chevron print.

I figured this out by folding the fabric like below. Then I just made each piece a different size. Half were pointed one way and half the other.

At that point, I knew it needed to be the highlight of the piece. So I made it into a top. I added simple white fabric to the top, ruched the sleeves (by shirring two rows) and added black piping around the neckline and armholes. The gathered sleeves actually happened because I thought it looked kind of odd. So there was one make it work moment!

I created a somewhat triangle shape on the back opening to add to the theme.

Then I made the leggings from a tshirt. It was actually the second pair. The first pair I made didn’t have a outside side seam, so adding the zipper just wasn’t working.  I found this tutorial to help figure out the zipper situation. Then I added the little black leather triangles above it. Those were another make it work moment to be honest. The top of the zippers just was giving me a hard time and I was tired of redoing that. So the triangles hide the not so pretty sewing at that spot. See? Make it work!

The headband is extra fabric from the shirt tied in a knot and the shoes came from Walmart. So there is my outfit. Now, make sure you see what everyone else made and vote for your favorite here. There are some seriously amazing outfits this week!

    I love this, Jessica!! The zippers in the leggings are adorable and I love the mod triangles. I’m not a huge chevron fan so this is way more my style. Great work!

    You definitely made it work lady, i love this outfit. Entirely love it. The pink paired with black & white is modern but soft. You had some great competition, but your look was my favorite. <3

    I just love what you did with the chevron print. It really is the focal point of the whole outfit. And don’t you just love ‘make it work’ moments…that’s creativity at it’s best! Very cute outfit!
