It’s the last week of Project Run and Play All Stars. This week’s theme is Spring Formal Wear. I’m not feeling very well (me and the little ones have been hit with an icky cold this week), so I will be brief because I just want to go lay down on the couch. *a day I wish I had a laptop* Voting is up here, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite. I loved everyone’s design. Truly amazing and inspirational.
The skirt is a gathered one made with this silky stretchy fabric. I added the mustard yellow shirred almost-circles to the bottom of it. I basically cut a circle out then cut the bottom of it all. I shirred two lines near the edge that switched from a zig-zag stitch to a straight stitch and did a whole line of zig zag on the inner circle.
The top is made from a lace I got at Joann’s a long time ago. Yay for stash busting! I drafted this pattern myself and added a pleat in the back and a faux button down with ruffles in the front. I also made a little camisole for miss J to wear underneath. I made the belt as well and her hair flowers came from Forever 21 a while back.
Being sick this week, I was really behind, so wouldn’t you know it the last day I could do photos was an overcast and rainy day again? lol Miss J explored while I snapped pictures and we tried to avoid all the fire ants and prickly plants that were everywhere. I will not miss fire ants when our time is up in Louisiana. No I won’t. I love the ones further down of her with the sticks. SO her. I’m going to go rest now. Hope you all have a great weekend and can see the good things in this world with so many bad things going on.
