I decided that I was going to sew along with the new season of Project Run & Play! It looks like SOOOOOO much fun and a great way to challenge myself at both designing and sewing! 😀
The challenge for this week is to remix the Party Dress from The Cottage Home.
Here is my version!
I kept it very simple AND sleeveless. I figure with living in the deep south she will get more use out of something made for warmer weather. We will be in the 80s by the end of the week! It’s JANUARY!!!! LOL
I cut it a little less full as well. I wanted it to have more of an early 1800’s feel, sort of Jane Austen-esque… LOL
I wanted to do something other than buttons or a zipper for the back so I added ribbon ties! 🙂 I love it!!! It reminds me of the Halloween costume I made for her!
I also decided to fully line the dress and add the stripe of color to the bottom of the lining.
For the sash, I cut out a heart from the print and stitched it to the center.
For my first PR&P sew along it isn’t terribly creative but we like it. LOL And I LOVE that print!!! I still have some left so I am sure you will see it again! 😉
I will be linking this post up to the linky party at PR&P! You should head over and check out all the others!
