My signature style//Project Run & PlayOctober 07, 2014
I decided to join in with the final sew along for this season of Project Run & Play. Each season, the final week is "My signature style". I thought it was the perfect opportunity to finish and show you this version of my new pattern - Sunday picnic dress, which I made Isabella. Since Juliette received the last three versions (here, here and here), Isabella asked if she could have one too....um, okay!!
So what is 'my signature style'? I love vintage inspired designs and also fabrics. I love florals, spots, piping, buttons, sweet little collars, interesting details on garments and clothes that are easy to get on and off! So I had to pair this dress with some knee high knitted socks (from the op shop) and some red mary janes for cuteness.
How cool is the border on this print? I love that I could incorporate it onto the hemline of the dress.
Isabella was in a bit of a silly mood when I took these photos, so there are a few random poses, like the one above!
The fabric is Cotton and Steel Mustang - Star (in Mustard) by Melody Miller. I particularly love the note on the selvage of this fabric: "Leap and the net shall appear". Man I love ALL the fabrics in the Cotton and Steel collection and have a few more half made into garments to show soon. I purchased the fabric from Frances at Miss Matatabi (my new favourite online fabric shop - great shipping costs to Australia compared to the US).
Another silly pose!
The photo below has been edited with high contrast but I kind of like it so have included it too!
