Project Run & Play: Week 5 |Sew along|

First of all let me introduce to you my Blue Summer dress. Such a simple and quick project, and it made me so happy. 

We are getting to the end of Project Run and Play season 6 already. There's only one more week to go and I have to be honest, when I decided to sew along with all the themes, I never thought I would actually succeed with it. I thought I would probably do one or two of the themes because sometimes I take so long to finish what I've started. 

The funniest thing about it, is that even though I've been sewing with PR&P, I managed to also make two Carnival costumes (which I will blog about later, of course)

I was really excited about this week at first, because I have a few men's shirts in my stash that I really want to turn into clothes for baby G., but I kept postponing it over and over. When I thought about this week, I first had in mind a romper, then I got an order for one of those costumes and I knew my time would be comsumed by that one. Mostly because I've been having a muscular pain for a few days that stops me from sewing for long hours. 

So, my second thought for the week's challenge was a dress, I made a scatch but didn't fully stick to it, and ended up with what you've seen on the above picture. 
I've turned the front of the shirt into the back of the dress, and the back of the shirt into the front of the dress. I just knew I had to use the pleat as a dress front. 

I started by deconstructing the shirt:

The sleeves were short, so they were perfect to make a diaper cover. 

And this is it. I made a dress, the diaper cover and a little bow (hairclip). I particularly like the details on the front of the dress. The already existing pleat and the two stripes tighted in a bow too. 
I might add some stencil to it later, I wanted to do it but I didn't have any more time. I started and finished yesterday after putting G. to sleep. 

I hope you liked my refashion, not there's more HERE, the other ladies would appreciate you checking their work too. Enjoy!

And now I will sew a polka dot skirt for a Minnie Mouse costume... just got a text message from my sister, she needs ones for my niece. For tomorrow morning!!! 


  1. So sweet!!! Great idea to reverse the shirt and make use of the pleat...

  2. You came up with a design that is so easy, yet very creative. I can't wait to try it myself. Thank you for sharing.

  3. This is one darling outfit! Great job!

  4. I just love it - it is simple sophisticated elegance and exactly what I want to have hanging in baby girl's summer wardrobe... it feels so far away ;op Well done!

  5. Thank you ladies!
    Pam: That was my starting point!
    Deborah: Let me know if you try it, it really is very easy.
    Suzanne: Yes, summer is still so far, it's still so cold in here, that's why she's not modeling this one. =I

  6. Hi, Magda! I also knew that you participate in this challenge! I'll watch for it to go to vote next for you, when do I can do it?

  7. Hello Rosy! Thank you so much, but I am not competing I am only sewing along with the themes and joining their link parties! =)

  8. Adorable! I never would've thought to use the pleat in the front, but it looks so good! It's so fun to sew along with PR&P!

  9. Thank you! Yes, it is great to see what others come up with and inspire each other. =)

  10. I love this so much! I can't wait until I have children so I can make things like this for them. I'm pinning this one so I remember it when that day comes! :)
