Project Run & Play

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?

Project Run & Play--Week 5 Men's Dress Shirt Refashion

Week 5--Men's Dress Shirt Refashion--How exciting!  I spent nearly my entire week trying to determine a plan, a design and do research.  I ended up putting this look together on Thursday night with finishing touches done on Friday morning--yes...down to the wire!  All in all I believe it turned out well and as a new and basically self taught sewer, I think I did a good job and stepped outside of the box.  My first thoughts were dress but I was thinking that was too obvious so I needed to come with something better than that.  I decided to combine my love for color-blocking (which I had never done) and peplums.

I am late to the party but in my defense I just found out about 'Blogtember!!'  It is a month long pledge to basically post to your blog more actively and it is a "challenge" issued by Story of My Life.  Who am I to see a challenge and just turn a blind eye?  NEVER!  So although it is now September 11th (NEVER forget!), I am going to start now and of course I am going to start with the "assignment" from a day or so ago which is to Take this short personality test and respond to your results.  This assignment was referred to as "day 5" of Blogtember and I believe they are now on Day 7--oops!  Better late than never!

So I took the test, yesterday actually and could not blog about it until today.  My results?  Are you at the edge of your seat to find out what is going on with THIS here personality?
