We have BIG, extended family portraits coming up later this month and our color scheme is grey, yellow and navy. I've been hunting for things for our family to wear. When I saw this blouse hanging in my closet,
I knew it was perfect to upcycle into something for one of the girls.
And since Project Run and Play has started up again, I decided to sew along. This week's challenge was to remix the Party Dress pattern by Cottage Home.
For the skirt, I only gathered it at the side fronts and back; I wanted to keep the lace insets lining up with those on the bodice.
I really love how this turned out. I need to tighten the elastic in the sleeve hems, and I MIGHT gather the sleeves a little where the upper and lower sleeve piece meet... can't decide on that one. Otherwise I think it turned out pretty perfect.
Oh... and thank heavens for a camera that has continuous shooting mode! It is H.A.R.D to get pictures of a one-year-old!
I'm linking up to the Sew-Along for Project Run & Play, Season 6 week 1!
