Project Run and Play is gearing up for their first ever All Star Season and a season just a couple of weeks ago so in the interim they decided to have some fun with a Remix Party. They are using Jessica's Spring Fever Pattern over at Me Sew Crazy. I had 3 ideas on how I wanted to remix this dress and ended up starting with my second idea. I loved the little ruffle around the circular back and decided to bring it around to the front.
|After bringing the ruffle around the neckline I made a placket to go down the front bodice. I finished the neckline as well as the arm holes with bias trim.|
|I always look forward to Project Run and Play and am amazed at people's creativity and sewing skills.|
|I have found that mixing a pattern up can be lots of fun! It can allow you to create something that you can not find an exact pattern for and kind of gets you back to the basics of sewing. It seems there are always a couple of ways of doing things and sometimes they are simpler than you think. It is also a little bit magical when you sew something with out a "store bought" pattern and it works :). Jessica's Spring Fever Dress pattern is a fun sew and came together easily if you would like to make a spring dress for your girl.|
p.s. Completely unrelated but my son and his team won their Championship game Friday night something that our school has not won since 2009. It was a happy weekend for us!
