Signature Style - Working Randomness


So it's signature style over at Project Run and Play this week. I was racking my brains trying to decide what my exact style is. The only thing I could really come up with is that I love putting random prints and colors together. I don't even know what to call it. Working randomness? With all the layering I like to do, I guess you could call it Bag-lady style. That's what my mother used to call me growing up. I would seriously just layer and layer.
 A lot of times when I show my family and friends fabrics I've chosen to go together they give me this look of "Oooookay then". I think my style is a lot like Matilda Jane or Persnickety. And I seriously know that their clothing is a million times cuter than mine, but I would love to aspire to their level. :D

I also know I have a problem of not choosing just 1 outfit.....I need to work on that.

Here's some of my outfits from the years.













Did I mention that I love pictures too? 

I do end up sewing Knot dresses, patchwork skirts and ruffle skirts the most. 
I havn't been sewing too long for boys, but I do know from dressing my oldest that I love a Skater/prep style. The button up shirts with t-shirts and skinny jeans. And again, just layers! :D 

I've really enjoyed sewing along with Project Run and Play and getting to see all the amazing talent. Those girls are definitely inspiring! I can't wait for the next season! :D

    1. lol Thanks Jo! I absolutely adore the fish outfit. The hardest part of that outfit was finding fish bone fabric. For some reason it just isn't that popular of a print! :D

  8. I just adore the one that's mostly blues but has that pop of pink for a pocket. And the one just a bit down that has the yellow diasy fabric and the red and blue paired with it. You are so brave with pattern mixing, and it looks great!

  10. Love when people can do that! I really love the look but never tried it myself. Have you heard of farbenmix patterns? Their whole philosophy is creating bright cheerful clothes by mixing fabrics. Also Sewing Clothes Kids Love is a great book. I just love looking at the pictures. :)
