Lagoon Hacks and Modifications

 Here at Project Run and Play we are very supportive of pattern hacking! Lagoon Top, Dress & Skirt pattern is no exception. Here are some things that our Project Under the Sea Blog Tour sewists tried out!  

Lagoon puff sleeve top

Liesel sewed a long sleeved Lagoon top for her daughter and eliminated the neck binding by lining it completely.  It also enabled her to use a stretch eyelet fabric. This is such a simple and beautiful modification!

Instead of using tulle on the tulle overlay skirt, Carol used this fun star cut-out fabric! It makes a beautiful patriotic outfit with this long sleeve, red Lagoon top!

Lindsay did a minor change on the tulle overlay skirt by adding a shorter layer of lace on top to add a subtle, tiered effect.

The Atilla fishtail skirt is not only twirly, it has a lovely drape in fabrics like brushed poly. Something to consider with fabrics like this is that they tend to pull the waist downwards on the larger sizes. For this one, Lindsay had to raise the waistline a bit to accommodate the weight of the skirt. 

Lindsay also sewed an Andrina bubble skirt using a mesh laundry bag for the outer skirt! Inside she added fabric seaweed and sequins with some digital design iron-on vinyl added to the underskirt.

For these Lagoon tops, she sewed the neck binding on the outside instead of the inside to add a contrasting neckline finish.

Jenny takes everything to the next level when she sews! This Lagoon top with Arista short sleeves uses a panel for the front. But wait- there's more! Jenny added some pretty beadwork to give it some extra bling!

Jenny did some major pattern hacking on this dress! She lowered the front neckline a little bit more and turned it around backwards for a scoop back! Then she added Indigo sleeves and a Calliandra skirt.

For this Lagoon dress Jenny used organza fabric for the front overlay and sleeves. More details are coming later this week!

There are so many ways to make the Ariel tail a little fancier! Audrey used pleated organza for the ruffle at the top of her mermaid tail. You can find it HERE from our Amazon Project Under the Sea page!

Lindsay tried some Tulip Color Shot fabric glitter spray paint to add some sparkle to the bottom of this Ariel tail.

These fabulous Ariel tails by Jenny have mesh sequin overlays sewn on the front and the waistbands were sewn in the same manner as the neck binding so that all of the scratchy edges are enclosed!

There are just so many great ways to use the Lagoon pattern! If you try any special pattern hacks be sure to tag us on social media and use #prplagoon!
