Project Run & Play is here!! Have you seen this week's challenge? Will you be playing along for the reader prize?? You should!
This week's challenge was to do a pattern remix of the Junebug Dress by Craftiness is Not Optional.
Now do you want to see how I remixed this pattern? Let me present:
MOD RECESS WEAR
Using a directional satin print I lengthened the sleeves and added a band at the elbows. Shortened the button placket and made the skirt a bubble style. Oh, and it is SHORT so we call it a tunic. It's cute. I like it. She likes it.
Here's the problem. I didn't LOVE the dress. I just wasn't excited about it. So I made another. But it is quite a diversion from the original pattern.
Yep, shortalls. I absolutely love it. These are made with linen. Beatiful gray linen. No sleeves, rolled cuff, exposed zipper. Yes, two exposed zippers. I love that recent trend and had to include it here. It just fits this style well. Plus when a girl's got to go she's got to go and fussing with 10 buttons isn't going to work!
Though I do have to appologize for all the blurry photography. I'm not sure what was up with me that day. But apparently it wasn't just me. We were all a little off...
And I can't even describe how ridiculous they were here when I said, "PLEASE be serious for a second so we can get a good photo of you together!"
But there were some smiles.
So go vote for ME the best remixed outfit at Project Run & Play! Voting opens Friday!
