I have been so busy the last few weeks that I really didn't have much time to make anything for Project Run & Play week 1, but I couldn't handle the idea of not making anything at all :)
I drafted a quick pattern for this hi-low top with accent side panels. I
knew I wanted a lightweight fabric so the top would drape nicely, and
Mae just loves her birds, so these Joel Dewberry prints were absolutely
perfect! I really enjoy working with this rayon challis fabric. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy some more as soon as I finish this post :)
I would have loved to make a pair of pants too, but that just wasn't
going to happen this week! So I pulled out Mae's go to stretchy skinny jeans from Old Navy to complete the look.
I know this is only a nod to this week's theme of "Put Me in the Zoo," but the Detroit zoo has a lovely aviary exhibit and I make sure to take the kids there on every visit :)
It's one of our favorite things, along with the polar bears, which may
have actually been a better theme since it's snowing right now. Again.
I swear it's never going to stop. I know the calendar says that it's
spring, but I see no evidence to support this!
And I'm pretty sure that at least one picture in every photo shoot should have a fake hamster in it :) But I'm not going to complain because that little toy kept Mae happy for the entire time it took to get my pictures!
