Project Run and Play - Week 3

Project Run and Play - Week 3

When I heard Week 3's theme -- Sound of Fashion -- iimmediately took me back to a memory of dancing under blue skies with my girls at a music festival. Their carefree movements that day re-inspired me to go with the flow and to live life to the fullest. Drawing on that inspiration and my family's love for indie music -- rock, reggae and folk -- it was only fitting I created a pair of flowy festival designs with a bohemian vibe for my look.

For my first outfit, I drafted a new flowy, hi-low top and added an exposed zipper with the sweetest feather pull. I paired it with my first and most popular pattern the Coachella Shorts.

I was drawn to the colors I chose for this week, the gorgeous peach and blues, as they remind me of being outside as the sun is setting listening to great music.

For my second outfit, I drafted a new skirt with a v front waistband and a hemline that dips down in the front and back. The lace blue bralette underneath is from a dance wear pattern I drafted for my daughter a few weeks ago. Lastly, I used my Hideaway pattern as the starting point for the white top. I changed the neckline a bit, added casings and ties to the sleeves, and cut the length off the top to make it a crop and shirred the bottom.

Head over to the Project Run and Play blog to see all the entries and vote for your fave for Week 3.

Shortening a Separating Zipper

When I started designing the After the Rain and shopping around for separating zippers I was shocked at how limited the selection was. I found a lot of zippers that were too short or way too long! Not to worry, I am going to walk you through customizing your zipper for the length you need.
