Puff Polka Dot Popover Remix-PR&P Season 7
I submitted my sew along entry just shy of an hour before "closing time!!" Talk about stressful-whewww! I sewed along a couple weeks of last season for the first time ever and apart from my time management skills needing a tweak I really enjoyed it so I thought why not try to do what I can this season?
This week was the infamous "Remix" week and the pattern is The Popover Sundress by Oliver+S! I had a million ideas pop up in my head, I'm always trying to be original hoping to stand out in the sea of entries. But I'm also a stalker of the PR&P so as I was brainstorming I would feel secure with an idea, check the site and see someone had submitted one just like I was thinking so I'd scratch it and try to come up with another. All of that contemplating cost me precious sewing time-lesson learned (I think ;-)
I decided first which fabric I'd use which came from my stash as I'm not planning on buying anything new to sew along. This is what I came up with:
A lovely polka dot quilting cotton that for whatever reason looks black in pictures, however I assure you it is Navy & White. I bought this from Joann's scrap bin a while back "just waiting for the perfect project" as everyone says. And the yellow was an upcycle:Just made it into PR&P Week 1!! I think I will start week 2 now! Stay tuned-it's all about candy!! Mmmmm
A jacket I bought myself about 3-4 years ago with the tags STILL on it!! You guessed it-bought and never worn so what was I "hoarding" it for? PR&P that's what!!
Immediately I knew the yellow sleeves would be leggings, how could I resist that ruffle?
