All in the details

I have been a fan of Project Runway since Season Two! I love watching the designers create in the crucible known as the Work Room. It's part of the reason I started sewing again, six years ago, after the birth of my daughter. That coupled with all the crazy cool tutorials you could find from women like Dana. I was even more excited when the blog Project Run and Play started up, I loved seeing what the bloggers would create and loved participate by voting each week. I entered the first Sew Along last season with this entry for the Stripes and Polka Dot Challenge!

This weeks challenge is All in the Details, I chose piping and a Peter Pan Collar (shocking I know) I am obsessed the PPC :) Although this time the collar almost ended me and I put it in and out SIX times before I got it right! I also had a separate collar that I loved but just could not make it work for me :(  This was the dress I made for my six year old for Easter and she loved it. I think she might love the PPC even more than I do, if that is even possible:) I also used a navy grosgrain ribbon for the sash and I really think it ties the look together.


If you are thinking to yourself I bet she was inspired by the Mini Boden Vintage Dress you would be correct! I love to be inspired by clothing I see online and in stores. I love to use pieces from different patterns to create the look for less. Let me know if you are interested in finding out which patterns I used to pull this dress together!


Thanks for stopping by! Check out the rest of the entries here!
