It’s time to share the Galentine’s Day photoshoot I planned for the Project Run & Play Happy Holidays Collection with you. This one was so fun for the girls and it’s jam-packed with great fabrics and details.
For this photoshoot I used three Cedar Coat & Cardis, two Prancer Pull-On Jeans, and an Evergreen Skirt. The two Prancers you can read about in the Friendsgiving post, but I’m super excited about how these Cedars turned out.
Let’s start with the one I made for Bean. This is a Cedar Coat and Cardi, view C short cardi in a turquoise and pink flannel from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. The cardi views are unlined and are typically made with a knit fabric, but I decided to use this soft, woven flannel here and it turned out so well. I made sure to finish all the inside edges just in case, but otherwise it went together according to the pattern instructions.
But the collars are the big standouts here. This is a Luxe Cuddle© Dazzle Hide in Ivory/Gold from Shannon Fabrics. The “dazzle” gives a sparkle to the fabric and yet doesn’t feel like anything when you run your hands down the nap. It’s not scratchy like a sequin so the fabric is able to maintain it’s super soft quality. You can see the sparkle better in the navy version in the Friendsgiving post.
For Grace I made a view A short, lined coat. This Burgundy Shetland Flannel from RCF is just the perfect fabric for sewing a tailored coat. It was so easy to work with and really lovely with the colors in the speckles. The Prancer Pull-On Jeans she wore in the Friendsgiving photo shoot came back again for this one.
I used another Luxe Cuddle© Dazzle for the facing/collar, but this one is in the Rosewater/Silver colorway. It’s such a beautiful color and the specks of silver make it just sparkly enough to be a special occasion coat.
Emma’s Cedar is the cardi view D. The lightweight Hacci knit from Raspberry Creek Fabrics was just the right weight to make a soft and drapey cardigan. The facing is made using the Sparkle Cuddle© Glitter in Blush/Silver and again, the bit of sparkle elevates this more casual cardi look. I love the ease of the belted cardigan views so much more than I expected to. Typically, I prefer the tailored looks, but there’s something that keeps drawing me in with these belted cardis.
The cardi was paired with an Evergreen Skirt in various fabrics from RCF. The evergreen is a great skirt pattern with tons of layered options. My ten year old LOVES the three tiered options, so I’ve made two of them so far. There is a great twirl factor and other than all of the gathering for the ruffles, the construction is basic and straightforward.
The girls had a fun Galentine’s photoshoot and I got to share the latest three out of seven Cedars I’ve made so far this season. Can you tell that I’m a little obsessed?
