Whoo! It's been two months since I touched my sewing machine and a Project Run & Play challenge is just the thing to get me out of my sewing funk.If you haven't been over there yet, I well let you know that they have changed it up a bit, just for the year. Each month a PR&P contestant will be highlighted and they are choosing a free tutorial from their site to use as inspiration (or as is). Then, those of us at home can put our own twist on it and link up!
So what's my take on it? I am a huge anime fan. We watch whatever shows are on Netflix and some that we've actually bought. Some of my favorites are "Sword Art Online", "Bleach", and "Naruto". I adore Hayoa Miyazaki's films (if you haven't seen them, you HAVE to!) I love the music and fashion.
My kids love anime as well and since I have decided that this year is going to be all about dress up, I chose to do a slight nod to Lolita fashion. Very slight.
I made a high-waisted bubble skirt, starting off with Alida's tutorial then winging the rest.
The suspenders are a nod to the straps on Alida's dress.
During the photoshoot Aevs kept doing the "Chick Chick" dance. My kids love that song and video too. In case you haven't heard it, you can find it just below the picture. You know you want to watch it!
Don't even try to process what you just saw. Just go with it. ;)
So there's my Cherry Chambray Change-up!
