PR&P Sew Along : Challenge #1 Pattern Remix TIMES TWO!!
For those of you visiting my blog...I thought I would start fresh by once again sewing along with Project Run and Play. This season sounds fast and exciting. Only four weeks of challenges! You can visit the PR&P blog by clicking on the ad on the right hand side of my blog. They have some great links to other exciting sewing blogs as well. This first weeks challenge was a Pattern Remix of Oliver + S free pattern called "Popover Sundress" which also includes a cute matching doll dress with it. (Visit this link for the free pattern.) My mind went spinning when I looked at the pattern...so open to possibilities. I thought of several but decided to do only two of my ideas for this remix. I also had a few yards of a new Riley Blake material called "Hoo's in the forest". The material is a red and green apple which looks perfect for our "Fall" season here in Florida. My other materials were a red cotton from Joann Fabrics and a vintage swiss dot material. ("Swiss Dots" were 1970's to 1980's. The dots are of a white flocked material so they actually bump out from the rest of the material.) The first idea was a cute basic skirt with pockets! I also made a plain white T-shirt and decided to do a handmade "screenprint" from freezer paper.
