Project Run and Play Sew Along Week 5

The Men's Dress Shirt Challenge is what I had to work with this week for Project Run and Play's Sew Along.  Once again I pulled my inspiration from Pinterest.  I choose two post to base this week's outfit from here and here as well as a little something all my own.

I started with a plain white dress shirt stolen from my husband.  Then I used some leftover dye from a tie dye kit, I had from dying stained baby onesies to dye it a super pale turquoise.  I love how the color turned out, although I should have done my seam ripping before dying, because now there is an interesting pocket shaped less dyed spot.

She's getting over a cold, so I could only get to to take pictures if she got to sit.

Using tutorials that don't provide pattern pieces, remind me how much I need a physical pattern.  They didn't turn out exactly like I had hoped, especially the pants that I ended up having to turn into leg warmers of sorts.  Oh well, it still turned out cute.

My favorite part is the the crown I made from the part of the collar that was seam ripped off.


  1. I love the crown and the color is gorgeous!

  2. That is super cute and very creative. :)

  3. So adorable! I am oohing and awing over the sleeve pants! Perfect! Great job!
    Thanks for linking up!

  4. gahhh - the internet ate my comment ;op But I just wanted to say how fun your crown is and that I almost went with a collar bonnet, but it didn't quite go with my look this week... maybe someday ;o)


Thank you so much for commenting! I read every one (including those ridiculous spam ones) and love hearing what you think!
