Project Run and Play season 8 is here! Hooray! time for a little sewing.
This week's theme is "Winter Wonderland." Honestly, it was hard for me to channel the winter love, I am celebrating the end of winter here in Texas (see the grass in the background? some green stuff is starting to come up!)

For this look, I was inspired by the black apple dolls (who was reading the Black Apple back in 2009? I have been in love with these dolls for years)

And Mary Margaret has also been influencing all my fashion choices right now. Ohmygosh I loooove Once Upon a Time. The show is great, but the cloooooothes. The whole show, I am like "that jacket is sooo preeeeeeeetty!" For those who don't watch, Mary Margaret is Snow White and she is cursed with a fabulous closet full of amazing coats and hats. Okay, that's not really what the curse is about, there's also a great collection of cardigans.
As I was headed outside to take pictures Christine started to get upset, "but mommy what can I hold? I need a lollipop to hold" (remembering this look). So I tried to explain that the only reason she got a lollipop that time was because it was a lollipop dress, and this is the "black apple dress" "Oh! I need an apple to hold!"The capelet is made from grey fleece, and has a button loop closure.
The neck was a little too small so it ripped while I was trying to wrestle Christine into the partially sewn up dress. (a big problem with sewing with such cheapo fabric) At first I thought, oh well, it was just a muslin anyways, but then I thought "Eh, I will just put a notch there!" luckily it ripped in the center.
