Back to School Tour: PACountryCrafts x Raspberry Creek Fabrics

On the blog this week we have our official 2022 Back to School Tour with Raspberry Creek Fabrics! Talented Project Run and Play designers will be sharing some incredible sewing inspiration!

Lindsay of PACountryCrafts is starting us off with an adorable, vintage style girls outfit!

Vintage Style Girls Outfit

My little girl absolutely LOVES her new back to school outfit!!! The fabrics are so cozy and she was even commenting on the quality! What can I say? I am raising them right! Haha!

Last year I sewed an Easy Street cardigan hack for her and she outgrew it. I have been really wanting to try sewing with waffle knit and thought it would make the perfect lightweight cardigan. I think that is definitely her favorite piece because it is so soft and cozy!

For the top, I wanted a 3/4 sleeve, fitted style, so I took the Abby's Spin and Twirl dress and lengthened the regular bodice to make a shirt. I also added cuffs to the sleeves because I really hate hemming.

The skirt was made with an Evergreen skirt pattern hack. (I really don't do well following directions!) I wanted a poofy, short look so I omitted the first a-line piece and attached the first tier to the waistband. I also added a faux button placket to the front, so I will add a tutorial for that in the future. I had also never sewn with gauze before and it was such a nice weight fabric to sew!

The last part of the outfit is a pair of Abby's Trailblazing socks BUT I still didn't follow the directions! She has sensory issues with sock seams. Most days she wears her socks inside out! I was able to sew all of the seams near the toes inside out intentionally so that they don't bother her. She also loved the thickness of the cotton spandex and wants me to make her some more socks for soccer practice!

If you want to pin this for later...
