Project Night and Day with The College Seamstress

Elizabeth, The College Seamstress, is here to share what she sewed up with the Project Night and Day collection patterns!

 Project Run and Play has a new pattern collection and I am so excited to share with you what I sewed! I helped with testing of the Celestial Dress so that was an easy pick to sew for the pattern tour and I focused my whole look on that pattern and fabric. The pattern is beautiful with princess seams and choice of three skirt lengths, two sleeve options, and a zippered back. The fabric is a chiffon from my stash and I have had it probably since my college years. I remember finding it at Goodwill but I never knew what to make with it. I'm glad I saved it until now because it is a perfect choice for this dress! I decided to add the lace after the dress was completed but it really elevates the look! It was easy to just pin the lace on to the princess seams and sew it down but the bodice really gives you options for sprucing it up for a fancier occasion! At first I was only going to do two tiers on the dress but decided at the last minute to do three tiers and I really love how it looks! Hopefully it will fit my daughter for a long time too since she is tall! I also chose to make the flowy sleeves which I think are so fun!

Next is the outfit I sewed for my son! I wanted his outfit to coordinate with my daughter's for a "fancier night" themed outfit. I found the yellow plaid cotton linen at Hobby Lobby. I've been wanting to make him a button down shirt for awhile and the Sunset Shirt from the new pattern collection was perfect! I chose long sleeves, regular collar, and the snap crotch version. The snap crotch is a great choice for a little boy on the move because his shirt stays tucked in! I also chose to do snaps instead of buttons for the rest of the shirt because it was faster. 

The bow tie is also from the pattern collection and it is the Outer Space Ties pattern. There is the option for a regular necktie or the adorable bow tie. I made the bow tie with the optional adjustable neck with velcro since my little guy is only one and I want to be able to put it on or remove it easily. 

To complete his outfit, I made the Fete Slacks which are also from the Project Run & Play shop but they are not from the new pattern collection. I chose to make these pants because the pants in the new collection did not go down to small enough sizing for my little guy. 

I made the pants with the elastic back, flat front option and instead of a fly I made a faux fly. That is not in the pattern but it is an easy adjustment to make. I did not want to put in the work for a real fly when my baby won't appreciate it!

I used the same fabric from his sister's dress so they could be matching. I did do the contrasting tuxedo stripe option which is included in the pattern to make the pants a bit more formal and to really tie it in with my other pieces by using the same fabric from the bow tie and dress. 

I had so much fun sewing these patterns for Project Run and Play and their new Project Night and Day collection! Check out my blog for more details and photos! 

What a fun sibling set! Sewing coordinating clothes is so much fun.
