PR&P: Bias Remix

Week one of Project Run and Play season five is here!
 This week's challenge was to remix No Big Dill's Very Biased Skirt.
I decided to make a little button-up top with flutter sleeves paired with Box Pleat Shorts (tutorial here).
 I drafted the pattern for the top, and made the base from white muslin. Then I covered the front of the shirt with strips of two different fabrics cut on the bias. The bias strips are from white lining fabric and the other is a sheer sparkly fabric.
 The shorts are made from a blue linen blend with a fabric covered button (my favorite detail!)
There's a cute little pocket in the back from the same fabric as the button (Chevron in Aqua- Riley Blake Fabric)
I'll admit, I was a little stumped on this one when I first heard the season's themes. But I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Check out the Project Run and Play Flickr group to see everybody's outfits. There's a lot of fun creative women in the group! I can't wait until tomorrow to see the real competitor's outfits!


  1. Ooh the sparkle is so fun! I love the scale and weight of the strips on the top and the fun buttons and little gathers on the bottom of the shorts.

  2. I really like your remix! It is the perfect mix of white and colors. Very cute.

  3. Such a cute top!I love the different fabrics alternating in your strips. I linked to you with a picture of it on my blog here: I hope you don't mind but I really love it!
