It's started! Project Run and Play has started and the first week's "sew along" project is due on the 6th! Happy New Year to me!! I am beyond
nervous stressed excited to play along! This week everyone who wants to join has to create a remix of Craftiness is not Optional's adorable Junebug dress. I have never done a remix before or tried to make a size 6 pattern from a size 2, so it was pretty challenging at first. This is what I came up with!
I combined the Junebug dress with the Starboard skirt from Simple Simon & Company that has been on my to-make list for awhile.I remixed the Starboard skirt a little too and added two additional pleats to the back.
I decided to make it sleeveless so it could last all through the winter and through summer depending on what it is paired with.
Then I flipped the top around and made the detail with the buttons as the back.
I added an inverted pleat to the front and two inverted pleats to the back (awesome for twirling!) exactly where the bodice seams meet the skirt.
I added seam binding and a sash to finish it off. There ya go! My version!
And, of course, I had to make a matching pinwheel bow!
I forced my daughter (the worst model in the history of little girls) to model it, so here is a link to a photo album of more pictures. I hope you like it!
