I’m back to share my sew-a-long look for week three of Project Run and Play. What a cute season it’s been so far. This week the theme is “denim.” I loved the idea, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to pull off a full on denim look for my four year old girl.
I’ve been so intrigued by fabric manipulation lately so I started brainstorming ideas on how I could incorporate it into my denim look. I remembered how blank of a pallet the Hide and Seek tunic was for showcasing fabric, so I decided that would be my starting point.
I found some really cool iridescent purple-ish blue-ish stretch denim, I’m a sucker for anything iridescent, so it really caught my eye. I wanted a light denim to compliment it, and wasn’t really finding anything I liked until I looked at the wrong side of a nearly black denim…bingo! It was great, the perfect shade of light denim.
I used the iridescent fabric to add some texture to my look. I layered the light denim, and two layers of the iridescent fabric to create the front yoke. I used the sew and slash technique to create a pretty much a faux chenille. It was so fun! I love the way it turned out, especially because the purple fabric’s wrong side is pink! It brought a whole new element to the look.
For the pants, I used a denim lace knit fabric to create some leggings. It’s such a cute print, the fabric is pretty substantial so they’ll be warm for winter. I topped it all off by making a floral crown out of the leftover denim. It was a fun change of pace!
I cant wait to share my signature style for week four, see you then!
