The theme for this weeks Project Run & Play is sportswear, which is soooo broad! I went with something that was my style and would be great for Bella-rella to wear all through the summer and fall. And really, who can resist a jumper?

I used this amazing vintage polyester print fabric, LOVE it! It's based on a vintage pattern and I crisscrossed the straps to add interest to the back

and added some big buttons on the front.

I made a pair of short leggings from an old shirt and added some ric-rac to the bottom to add a little fun. As you can see from the above shot my daughter isn't so good at "sitting like a lady" so wearing things under dresses is starting to become a must.

This outfit is so easy, simple and summery. And perfect for



and Jumping

As always, check out my flickr page for more pics!
