If you've been following my blog then you know I have been sewing along with Project Run & Play this season. It is SOOOO much fun!! I have been using up my stash and challenging myself. This outfit was by far the most challenging and I definitely made the mistakes to prove it! LOL BUT I think it still turned out well. ;) Colin LOVES it. He never asks to keep something on after pictures but this time he did. YAY!!!!!!
I made 3 coordinating pieces - the denim shorts, the raglan tee and the vest. All 3 pieces have the dino print on them. ;)
It is SOOOO hard to get him to hold still and smile for the pictures! LOL He would rather be in motion.
I printed out a dinosaur footprint to use as a guide in cutting the applique.
This is my very first raglan tee!! I found it to be very much like making a peasant blouse.
Here are some more firsts!
First time working with denim (other than patching).
First time making inset pockets (without a pattern) and I think that next time I will cut the a bit bigger. They are functional but I think it would have looked better if more of the print was showing.
First time making a faux fly. That was soooo much easier than I thought it was going to be! LOL
I'll be linking this up at Project Run & Play tomorrow! Be sure to go check out all of the other boy looks!! :D
On Tuesday I will be putting up the tutorial!
I wonder if I can bribe him into letting me take more pics.... LOL
