My candy girl

It's candy week over Project Run and Play, and at first, I wasn't really sure I would be able to sew along this week. I couldn't think of anything else but costumes when I thought about candy. Then one night, I had an idea, and I wondered... What is the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the word candy

The answer is:


Then, it came to mind that I had bought a striped shirt in a thrift shopping a few months ago. That would be perfect for the look I imagined. Well, I didn't go all crazy about this week. I didn't even create a total new outfit (she doesn't need it, remember?), all I did was a new sweatshirt that I just love. 


To make it, I used two shirts. The one with the stripes and (actually leftovers from) a red boy's sweatshirt, I had cut to use in a short's pattern I've tested and might blog about one of these days. From the red shirt I had only sleeves and top left, and on top there was some boy (ish) embroidery that I didn't want to use, so because of that I wasn't able to re-use the neckline. I used a piece from the top back to make the front's red piece of my shirt. I used the stiped shirt for the full back and bottom front. 


For the new neckline, I used bias tape I had made from the mom & daughter's refashion leftovers back in July and red lace from my stash. I had just enough of the bias left for the neckline which was great! I added a button closure on the back. this was not planned, but when I firt finished the shirt and tried to put it on G. it couldn't go over her head. I had to come with a solution and that was it. The button is a bear's head I had bought a long-long time ago, and she picked it out of all my red buttons. It was a fun moment for us!

... and yes, red and stripes are our favorites around here... 


We gave her a treat for the photoshoot, she's been no colaborative at all, so this really helped! I managed to make two photoshoots all at once! HA! and she didn't even the whole things, after chewing one edge and then the other, she just gave it to me... "no more mom".

I've paired the shirt with a red tulle skirt she had been given last year and rarely uses. I think we will have a lot more use of this now, because we all loved the combination! And, the one last thing left is the hair acessorie I've made her... Sweet, right?

    1. Obrigado. A intenção era essa. Algo simples e rápido mas que pudesse mostrar no link. O "rebuçado" para o cabelo não foi novidade, há um par de anos tive uma encomenda para umas meninas de ballet e fiz imensos e de imensos tamanhos com várias utilizações... bandoletes, ganchos, acessórios da dança...
