First things first, I wanted to thank everyone for their votes during the open auditions for Project Run and Play! I can’t believe how many of you voted for me (I am deeply touched, and slightly embarrassed by the effort so many went to to vote for me! – I’m looking at you, everyone who went on facebook and did shout outs that traumatized me, I am terrible about ever campaigning for myself, and the fact that so many of my friends and family posted links about voting, was very touching!) I think I came in third, which was amazing considering how aggressive the voting was!!!
Anyway, here is a picture of my project from today, I am trying to make all of Emmie’s school clothes this year (except a few pairs of Jeans I got for her.) because I don’t love the clothes that are out there for children her age, and I decided that this would be a fun challenge!
This is a tunic length top, with a gathered front, a curved baseball hem, and lace capped sleeves; the pattern is my own, the blue and white knit fabric came from a discount place near my sister’s house in AZ for $1, and the lace was from Hobby Lobby, and with the 50% of sale it was on, I believe it cost me $2.
I’m thinking black capri-length leggings would look really cute with this, but I plan to play around with the styling a bit. I will take photos of her actually wearing it later, after I have had time to get a few more pieces together.
