Have you heard of Project Run and Play? Blogging designers, kids clothes, contest, short deadlines, you get the drift. Now they have a sister site called Project Sewn, and this season's competition starts today!
I am not yet an awesome enough blogger/clothing designer/sewer to be one of the official contestants, but they have a sew-along division for us regular folks!
This week's theme is "Black and White." I happen to love black and white clothes since they're so dramatic and classy. So I love this theme. I'm making the clothes for my sister, though. Just because. (She loves black/white, too.)
Week One Entry:
The Spiffy Date Night Skirt
This is one of the first times I've designed clothes, and it's the first time ever designing adult clothes. It's less intimidating to whip up a no-pattern baby outfit; if it turns out a little funny, oh, well. They'll love it anyway. Or not care. I don't imagine babies really care what they wear. And Boo likes anything I make for her, especially if she gets to help and it has "fancies." (That would be ribbons, ruffles, etc. She is a girly-girl. :) )
Isn't she pretty? I love the red shoes with the black and white. (I didn't make the shirt, by the way; just the skirt.)
Boo wanted in on the photo shoot.
And she loves to be with her aunt.
Please vote for me starting Friday morning!
