This week’s challenge from the ladies over at Project Run & Play was to use stripes and dots in any design. When it comes to stripes, I find knits have some of the best prints. I chose to combine a bold and bright striped knit with a chevron stripe quilting cotton. The toughest part about working with stripes is ensuring that they all line up at the seams. Careful cutting and lots of pins usually do the trick.
I managed to work in some dots with multi-colored buttons along the shoulder seams. The solid pink band was designed to help highlight the button accents.
I so wanted to build a lemonade stand just for some fun pictures in this bright summery dress, but we’ve had two days of rain and ice. I’m dreaming of sunny days and snowcones every time I look at the dress though. I had to get some pictures of this one is action, so excuse my sad attempt at a backdrop.
Bring on those sunny skies!!
