Hi, I am Christina from 2 little hooligans and I am so excited to be back here at Project Run and Play today. Project Run and Play honestly changed me as a sew-er. Prior to competing in PR&P I had only sewn a few articles of clothing which mostly consisted of basic peasant style dresses. I still remember when I was asked to compete, I was completely terrified...and then I got sewing. I quickly learned how to make a dress with a bodice and I haven't stopped sewing clothes for my kids ever since. So thank you so much Liz and Elizabeth for asking me to compete in season 5. It pushed me to limits I never thought I could reach!
For Flashback May I decided to recreate The White Sheet Challenge. Here are my last White Sheet Challenge Outfits. Last time I kept my sheet white so this time I decided to dye it. I let my little girl decide what color she wanted and of course she chose her favorite color, blue.
I had planned on recreating this dress because she has outgrown it and it was one her favorites. However she really wanted another romper. I recently made her the Marina Romper by Cali Faye and she just loves it! And apparently she really wanted another one. What I learned quickly about making clothing for my kids is that if they do not like it, they will not wear it. And for me, it is a waist of time and money if they will not wear it.
I love that my kids wear and are proud of their "momma made it" clothes and I want to keep it that way. So if I have to create clothes per their request sometimes, then that is what I will do. Plus I cannot help but love this pattern as well. It is such a classic looking romper that goes together so fast!
So unfortunately there were no new or inventive designs made here, instead I made one little girl pretty happy.
