SquigglyTwigs Designs Pattern Tests AND My Signature Look

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....

SquigglyTwigs Designs Pants and Peasant Blouse 006

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! ;)

  1. This is just too cute.. Love it.. Also Collin's pants.. He is adorable..and looks very happy with his new duds on.. Two pretty models.

  2. So pretty. Thank you for writing about us.

  3. I really like the length of this tunic. Did you shorten the dress pattern? Good job Stacy! I just love how you are so ahead of the game having your outfits done at the start of the week. Lol! Amazing.

  4. Thank you!!!!
    With SquigglyTwigs, it shows you how to draft the length you want. If you use the standard, it will give you the measurements and with the custom, you use your own measurements. I used the standard for the tunic and the custom for the capris.

  5. The outfit turned out so cute! I love the fabrics you chose. :D

  6. Thanks, Jamie!!!
    I am overly fond of ruffles myself. ;)
