Week 3 is up over on Project Run and Play, so make sure you go and vote for your favorite this week! The theme was “All in the Details”, and wow, will you see a lot of awesome details on everyone’s design. Truly amazing these ladies. For this look, I created a maxi skirt and a top.
I put some fun details in the top that I have that I made for miss J. I wanted the front to continue a little bit to the back, so I made the piece wider in the front to do this. The blue polka dot piece (from Hancock Fabrics) is a rectangle piece that I ruffled at the top. The red and strawberry print overlap on top of that piece. They are held in place with the buttons and I also tacked them onto the polka piece in a few spots.
The back is a ribbed knit fabric to add to the comfyness of the top. I used leather for part of the straps and it is tied in the back through a loop of leather. I shirred a bit in the back as well to help give it a little more shape.
The skirt is made from a knit fabric I had scored last year. I made a simple a-line maxi skirt. Then I cut from the bottom to a few inches below the waist down the middle on the front and back. I then pieced together fabric to create a triangle piece and sewed one in the front and in the back.
It adds to the fullness of the skirt and adds some extra fun too.
The hat we used is from Old Navy two years ago. I wrapped around some fabric I used from the skirt to make it match.
I love this little summer outfit on my girl. I can see her wearing this a lot.
Yet again, we had rainy days on the days I wanted to take pics. So I opted to do these in our back yard. We strung up some lights and made flower chains to add as well.
Now we have one week left! I’m pretty sure I know what I’m going to make. In fact, I think I’ll go to the fabric store today 🙂 Some of the participants are already done, but I just keep changing my mind on what I want to do! lol Hopefully I can get it done this weekend though. Don’t forget to vote and have a great weekend!
