I decided to sew along with Project Run and Play this season. This is my first time sewing along; I just couldn't resist joining in on the fun when I saw the themes for this season, especially this weeks theme "Put me in the zoo"
For this challenge, the idea is to take some inspiration from your or your child’s favorite animal and make an outfit inspired by that animal, but not a costume. I chose a peacock!
I have had my eye on this voile at Joann's, for a while now and was waiting for an excuse to buy it. This challenge gave me the perfect excuse! It’s got some peacock colors in it and the floral design reminds me of peacock feathers.
I paired the voile with a peacock colored sash and some navy knit.
For the dress, I used the bodice from Little Lizard KingsHomegrown Tank pattern that I tested last month. I made the sash a bit wider for a bigger showy bow in the back and I modified the skirt to be a high-low hemline like a peacocks feathers handing down behind her. The voile is soft and drapey so the skirt has really pretty flow when she walks in it.
Em looks as pretty as a peacock in her new dress!
