PR&P Design Your Own Fabric: Stained Glass Window Dress


It's "Design your own fabric" week over at Project Run & Play and I have been so excited for this week!
I had tons of things I wanted to try out: 



Eventually, I ended up going with reverse applique cause I'm on an applique kick (note Hanson shirt last week).


I decided to go with a "stained glass window" look and drafted a design I liked then went to town sewing around all my shapes. Then I got to be a little scissor happy and cut all those suckers out!
The kids have been calling it the "Rapunzel dress".
You've got me.....


I used Modkid's "Lexi Dress" pattern to make the actual dress. It's an adorable and super comfy play dress and Aevarie loves the cut out in the back. She insisted she sew the button on herself too.
I deviated from the pattern a bit and just sewed on the gathered skirt rather than making a band. I'm a rebel, what can I say?
Aevarie may have begged to wear it to bed as well......so, yeah, that means she loves it.


I am dying to see what everyone else creates with this theme!
And seriously check out what the contestants have done and vote for your favorite (or if you have more than one device, you can totally share the love or squander it all on one look, just vote)!!

  5. The famous Karly sews along again! Yours is a great post to look at while we wait for the contestants post! Love your very intricate reverse appliqué. We did some reverse appliqué for week 1, but this week we went the fabric paint/markers and stencils route.
