It is day two of our week of looking at fantastic patterns that you can use for your kiddos that need to wear uniforms to school. And of course the flip side - how fun those same patterns can be when given free reign.Read More
The holidays all too often get muddled in the stress of 'must do's, have to's, and want too's'. Between shopping for gifts, creating the perfect holiday card, and decorating a pristine house (HA!); the stress mounts and we can sometimes lose sight of our family, the whole reason we put ourselves through all this stress.
So for one week, we here at Pattern Revolution, are bringing you a little glimpse into our lives, our traditions, and our love for adorable Pajamas! A reminder that simple things can mean the most when they are filled with love.Read More
I am a huge fan of Project Run and Play especially since I was able to participate in Season 6 as a competitor. It increased my confidence, my abilities, and is constantly stretching my creativity. One of the things that I love most about PR&P is that the first challenge every season is to 'REMIX' a free pattern or tutorial. This is to encourage you to think outside the box, and see the various amount of potential that lies in one simple pattern.
We are going to be sharing a whole slew of 'remixes' and 'modifications' later in the month and through October.... and beyond... but for now, I'll share with you my sew along entry for the first week of Season 7 of Project Run and Play.
The Free Remix Pattern is Oliver&S's Pop Over Dress:
And here is my version:
My daughter's nursery is Little Red Riding Hood, and the first thing my husband ever bought her was a stuffed wolf 'Wolfie'. My first entry in my season of PR&P was the Wear-Wolf...
... and since that dress is getting too small, it was time for a new Wolfie for the cool months laying ahead.
I changed up the bodice, and shortened it to a tunic length, added width to the front for the box pleat, and of course the wolf face ;o) I also didn't want to bows to distract from the ears, so I adapted them to tie in the back. My chidren seem to have no knowledge of what a pocket is, or interest in them - but I love pockets, so I added some of those too. All in all, it was a super fun remix!!!
