I was planning on creating a separate look for the Project Run & Play Signature Look Challenge BUT I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the way the pattern tests for SquigglyTwigs Designs Cute and Quick Pants and Peasant Blouse turned out so I will be entering them. ;)
I have very eclectic tastes and style. Just like my preferences for reading, music and movies, they seem to be all over the place! I love modern, retro, vintage AND classic looks, so it's sort of hard to pin down just one look to describe my signature style....
I used SquigglyTwigs Designs Pretty Peasant Dress pattern for the tunic. I used the standard size 8 with added ruffle.
The capris are SquigglyTwigs Designs Cute and Quick Pants custom size 7 with added ruffles.
If you've been following my blog for a while then you'll know how much I LOOOOOOVE eyelet! I can't get enough of it! LOL And I think it goes wonderfully with the 2 vintage look prints.
I have to say, though, that print was a pain in the rump to sew with!!! It's woven but it reacts like knit!! PAIN IN THE BUTT!!! And every time I took the iron to it, it would expand! I love it but it was a PAIN! ;)
I also made Colin a pair of pants from the same pattern. I used the standard size 6 with added cuff. I used a heavier weight knit for the main pant portion and a medium weight knit for the cuffs. He LOVES them. He would rather wear knits than anything else! ;)
I will be linking this up with the sew along linky party at Project Run & Play tomorrow!! You should go check out all the AWESOME looks that link up every week! SOOOOOOOO much talent!!!!
