Project Run and Play Season 13 has begun and I’m so excited to be rooting along from the sidelines this season. It’s so fun to see so many familiar faces competing this season but I sure don’t miss the pressure from last season! I’ll happily sew-along just for fun!
The theme this week is “It’s All About That Place”- a destination inspired outfit. Well, my favorite destination is easy- Mexico! While I dream of exploring the world, right now a true vacation involves sandy beaches, sunshine, and no alarm clocks or schedules to keep up. We took the kids last year and it was seriously the best week ever!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few yards of Patty Young’s newest line for Riley Blake- Primavera. It’s all so bright and cheery and perfect for spring. It has just the right beachy vibe and was just what I needed for these looks.
I used Primavera Plaid Teal and Primavera Tile Teal for these two looks, along with trim and scraps from my stash (I love shopping my ever growing scrap bins!).
My oldest got a Modkid Dakota. This simple top will fit right in with her spring wardrobe. I loved how beautifully it came together and the options to get creative with fabric and trim on this bodice make it so fun. I think it would be so pretty in a rayon challis or voile too! I did a size 7 with a 10 length according to the size chart and it fits just right! This girl just keeps getting longer and longer!
K- time for a little honesty, as I was sewing this dress I was so worried there was too much going on. But the moment my girly tried it on it I swear it was magic. This dress is HER- like 100% Payton. Girly and fun and bright and whimsical and twirly and comfy and cute! This will definitely be a favorite.
I used the Luna Dress from Violette Fields Threads and slightly modified it. I’ve had that gorgeous floral ribbon in my stash for years and loved it with the plaid. I lengthened the bodice to fit the ribbon band and love the extra detail it gives. I kept my ribbon tie extra long just for that extra pop of fuchsia.
I also added a few seashell buttons to go with our theme just for fun.
I’m really so excited because the hubby and I are headed to Mexico SOON! We’ve had a crazy couple months and I can’t wait to sit on the beach and do absolutely NOTHIN’! I’m sure going to miss these cute girlies though! Seriously…
Gotta love them!
