Hello there! Welcome to my little sew and share space. Today I'm sharing with you a special selection of photos that feature two wonderful patterns from Project Run and Play 2019, Farmers Market capsule wardrobe collection!
I had the pleasure of testing two different patterns (from Audrey Fixation and Duchess & Hare) that were included in the capsule collection. . . But I really wanted to enter into the "Sewing Challenge."
So here are two other patterns that are part of this wonderful collection that I'm putting forward for judging!
The Caraway Cardigan by Delia Creates
Seed (dress/romper/shorts/trouser) pattern by SewPony
I wanted to use fabric I already had in my stash (yes, mine is getting out of hand!) At the same time I wanted fabrics that my fussy 5 year old would like and want to wear.
The Caraway cardi is sewn in an acrylic/cotton blend knit fabric (a nightmare to sew with to be honest! So stretchy and rather unstable once cut.) However, it made for a beautiful relaxed, weekend style cardi that I know she will wear. Plus white goes with everything.
|We both love the Caraway Cardigan|
My little Miss only needed a 2T for the width (and a 5 for height.) I appreciated the layers option when printing this pattern too. I look forward to sewing other versions of this pattern.
I'm already a big Sewpony fan, so choosing to sew up Seed was an easy choice!
|I added a ribbon bow to the back - because who can resist a bow?! (Not me!)|
While I don't usually choose snaps over buttons, I did want to make this romper child friendly. Miss A can easily pop these open for bathroom breaks (kind of a thing when you're wearing a romper - no matter the age!)
|POCKETS!! Need I say more. . .|
This fabric and these colours where 100% with my child's preferences in mind, yes, I'm sure a stylish Art Gallery print might have been more swanky . . . but I sew for my girl and I want her to love what I make. . .and this romper got the thumbs up!
Thanks for visiting!
Happy sewing and see you next time.
