Sewing Friends: RaeAnna from Sewing Mama RaeAnna

Hello PR&P readers!  I'm RaeAnna from Nashville - long time "listener", first time "caller!" :)
Seriously, I am soooooooo excited that this is my first time posting on the Project Run & Play website!
I found out about PR&P during season 4 and fell in love with blogging about kids clothes sewing!  I'm enjoying my own blog growth as I continue sewing for my 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl in my spare time as a stay at home mommy!
 (For all my Project Run & Play sew along looks click here!)

I was inspired by some pictures of 1950's baby clothes and came up with this self drafted playsuit for the summer!  I had some gingham seersucker to use that works great with this design!  And as soon as I made it I have been finding gingham style posts around the internet EVERYWHERE!  LOL!  I'm glad to know I'm "trending"!

You'll need:
existing shirt/bloomers to draft your pattern
2 metal grommets
ribbon or bias tape for the drawstring neck tie

Here we go!

This completes your top!  You can use this technique for any of your existing patterns - I think it creates such a cute and "vintage-y" vibe! 
Thank you for reading and I would love to have you join me in my sewing adventures on my blog! Come visit my blog today for the tutorial of how I made the bloomers to match!
