PRnP Week 1 - Boys Popoveralls

I'm so excited to be done on time!

For this season of Project Run and Play the week one challenge is, as always, the pattern remix. This challenge is my absolute favourite especially as it tend to offer an additional challenge to those of us who don't have girl's to sew for.

I didn't start this challenge until Tuesday, the day after the challenge was anounced. I was inspired by Sewing Like Mad's 32 pattern piece dress. Wildeman's Popeveralls have 25 pattern pieces in all. This is certainly the most complicated piece I have ever sewn for Wildeman!

I started by drafting this pattern on my own and drawing out on old wrapping tissue. Pretty!

I cut the pieces out from these old button down shirts that my aunt handed down. My whole family has started funneling old clothing to the family-refashioner. No complaints here!

Then I sewed each and every little piece with Edmund, my trusty serger.

I feel like I'm finally gaining the skills as a seamstress and refashioner to take my crazy ideas to fruition and really be proud of the things I make. I've come a long way in the last few years and so much of that is due to the incredibly community of bloggers who share their passion, skills adn discoveries with each other. I'm so glad to be a part of such a friendly, creative group of talented women.

Thank you and craft on!
