Hello, Project Run and Play fans! So excited to be here. My name is Leisel and I blog (very occasionally) at Brown Paper Packages. I was part of the season which included the darling ladies at Simple Simon and Co. (How do you compete with THAT?!?!) And I am so excited to be back for the day!
The project I wanted to share with you is based on the theme 'Adult Inspired'. When my second daughter was getting ready to be baptized, I knew I wanted to create a special dress for her big day. I tend to fight against anything too traditional, so I went with a color other than white (I am such a rebel, I know!). And I had the perfect concept in mind. I had pinned a women's dress on my Pinterest page that I loved (and have since managed to lose!) and wanted to turn it into a girl's dress.
A simple wrap dress, with slightly puffed sleeves, a ruffle collar and a big bow on the side.
And I must have had some heavenly help along the way, because this dress turned out exactly how I envisioned it the very first time I sewed it up and it fit like a glove! (This doesn't happen very often for me.)
Thanks for letting me visit! Happy sewing, Leisel
