Project Art Studio with Jenny of Made of Starlite

 Next up on the tour, we have Project Run and Play team member Jenny from Made of Starlite on Instagram!

The theme for my collection is "Sketchbook". I started with this color palate, pulled from the 2022 NY Fashion Week Fall colors. I just love all the vibrant hues that are trending this season! I don't know if you've noticed, but I generally gravitate toward spring colors over fall, so these make me super happy. πŸ˜‰

We started with these overalls. My daughter is totally OBSESSED with overalls! All lengths, all colors, all the time! So I knew the Degas Dungarees would have to be my first sew. We found this super cool ombre denim at JoAnn's, and while she usually picks comfort over aesthetics, she begged to bring it home even though it does not have any stretch! 

The finish on the inside of this pattern is just beautiful. I love it when the inside is a pretty as the outside!

Of course we had to sneak in a tag from the new fabric line! I don't generally use these side tag, and now I want to add them to all the things!!! 😍

I don't know if you can tell, but this girl loves a photoshoot. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Next up, we went super comfy with a Haze Top made with double brushed poly! I was so excited when Sherri agreed to include this beautiful pattern in the collection. She originally designed it for spring, but I keep seeing that pleated bodice at retailers in their fall releases! 

I followed the pattern exactly as written, despite using a knit fabric. I think if I did it again, I would size down one size in width, and probably skip the lining in favor of binding on the inside. 

And I keep thinking of pretty trim I could add to those pleats! I can't wait to try the hand stitched option; it's so pretty!

We paired the Haze with my favorite legging pattern of all time, the Rocky Shore Tights! I don't even know how many pairs I've sewn of these. I've been hoarding this super cool rainbow denim from Spunkin Honeyhead Fabrics forever, and we both agreed that the rainbow effect was meant to be part of this collection.

Of course I couldn't stop with just one pair of Rocky Shores, so we did a second pair in a light wash denim print knit. 

This time we paired them with a cozy Blank Canvas Cardigan and a Multi Hue Henley, sans placket. I always seem to forget about sewing wardrobe staples, so it was nice to force myself to just whip out a few basics since she is growing like a weed!

Look at that range of motion on those Rocky Shores! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

While we both adore the Henley, I didn't have buttons to match this blue knit, whic *perfectly* matches the blue in the sweater. So I just skipped the placket and cut a neckband at 80% of the neckline. Worked like a charm!

I'm sure you've noticed, but Millennial Moms: crop tops are back! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜€ It's 2003 all over again folks. So when we updated the Easy Street Tee and turned it into the Easel Tee (free with purchase of any pattern in the Project Art Studio Collection!), we had to throw in a crop length. 

Hope you are thoroughly inspired to sew something for your resident artist!
