It’s the end of yet another season of Project Run & Play and though I cut it close this week, I’ve managed to sew-a-long with each theme. It’s always fun seeing what everyone in the sew-a-long creates each week.
For my signature look, I changed things up this season. I normally make some sort of tunic/hosh pants combo which is very much what Bean tends to wear on the regular. Lately though, she’s been asking for some twirly skirts so I thought I’d oblige.
I drafted (*affiliate link) a simple drop waisted dolman sleeved bodice and added two off-center circle skirt flounces. Apparently my new signature style is hobo-chic since Bean wouldn’t let me do anything with her hair, hehe.
The flounces are lined so when Bean twirls you can see a bit of the lining. I think it’d be fun with a pop of color or with piping along the edges.
Speaking of fun, there is definitely a lot of twirl in this dress. Bean was very excited. I was excited because the bodice is fully lined, including the sleeves. I sewed the sleeve mains and linings closed using the “burrito method” so they have a bit of structure. I really like a nicely finished bodice. What about you?
