Week 4: 🌈Our Kawaii Life!🦄

Week 4: 🌈Our Kawaii Life!🦄

Six years ago, if you told me I'd be one of the final 3 designers on Project Run & Play, I'm not sure I would have believed you! This is totally one of those "pinch me, this can't be real" moments! I'm forever grateful to everyone who has supported and cheered me on! It's been a staggeringly talented season and each designer really gave it their all! I've been hoping to make it to this week because I really wanted to let loose! In the words of last season's winner, Pearberry Lane: this is us! We're silly, expressive, purposefully mismatched, happy, and a little weird! We're constantly evolving and learning new cultures and trying new ideas out and so I wanted to create a collection that reflects just that! I call this summery collection Our Kawaii Life!

Week 2: 🍦 Ice Cream & Sundays! 🎀

Week 2: 🍦 Ice Cream & Sundays! 🎀

This week, the challenge was to design and create something entirely from your preexisting stash of fabrics! I wanted to make some really sweet, super playful and girly looks! The fashion I like to make my kiddos is reflective of their bubbly and silly personalities: bright, diverse, and, most importantly, with a sense of humor. So for my 4 year old, I wanted to make something that I knew she would love: 🍦Ice Cream🍦! To pair up with the chartreuse neoprene, I wanted the ice cream part to be bubblegum pink. I looked to my stash for a print that would complement those two colors and chose a pink floral (as well as a matching pinkish red polka-dot cotton fabric) for an outfit for my 6-year-old. "Where are these girls (in these dresses) going?" Brunch! These two little ladies are getting all dressed up for a Sunday afternoon in downtown Portland, in one of the many hipster neighborhoods, the Hawthorne district, enjoying some eats and stopping at a few shops along the way! So that's why I decided to call this week: Ice Cream and Sundays (pun intended! 😊)

Eleena Dress PDF Pattern Review + another Elm Poncho!

Ahh the first day of school.  I am lucky enough, I mean, the girls are lucky enough 😉 to have the freedom of wearing what they want to school so I always make Azy a dress.  Well, this year was extra special.  Because, this year, I picked out the perfect first day of school dress pattern: the Eleena Dress by Olga of Coffee + Thread, AND (for the first time ever) I had two lovely ladies to sew first day of school dresses for!  Which also meant I needed to sew up another Elm poncho (by petite a petite + family) as well!
