Week 3's theme for Project Run and Play is...MAD for Plaid.
I almost missed this week's challenge. Last week I was summoned for jury duty, and although I was dismissed after waiting for several hours, I had to spend the next 2 days making up my work. And I did not want sewing to keep me from having fun with my daughter on the weekend. So that left me with less time to sew.

Week 2 of Project Run and Play theme is Candy-inspired outfits! Candy Inspired...when I read the theme, several ideas popped into my head...a cotton candy inspired pastel colored bubble dress, jelly beans inspired dots and pompom dress, tootsie roll inspired brown romper... but the very first "candy" I thought about was a candy cane. Just a classic, red and white peppermint candy. Rather than going all crazy and making a Halloween-suitable dress, I decided to stick with my first thought and make something simple.

New season of Project Run and Play has started!!!
I was not sure if I will be able to sew along, but this is one of my favorite parties, I had to try! The first challenge is Oliver + S Popover Sundress remix. It is a dress pattern that has been on my to-sew list for a while, so this challenge was a must do. I liked the simple & sweet A-line shape of the dress, so I did not want to change that. I decided to use a lightweight gauze fabric that was in my stash and make one last summer dress for this year.

I know the Labor Day has passed, and summer is said to be over...but we live in Texas, where summer is nowhere near over! Even though we may see sweaters and boots at the stores, I really, really rather not have them yet...
So I made another summer dress for Momo. I used the same pattern and tutorial I used a couple of weeks ago: Shirred Twirly Dress -From An Igloo
