I’m so excited that Project Run and Play to be happening again. I feel like I could have done so many things for this challenge, but it was the fabric I had found that determined what I decided to make. The result was a bit literal for the challenge, but I fell in love this Rifle Paper Co fabric. So this represents the world I’d like to travel (a few of which I’ve been to) and the places I hope my children get to see. Of course, Paris is on the top of her list so she was upset that Eiffel Tower wasn’t centered on the dress. I used one of my favorite patterns, the Fairy Tale dress pattern from Oliver + S. I just added a little more fullness to the skirt.
The most difficult decision was what to do with the waist as to not distract from the gorgeous fabric. I originally wanted a simple ribbon waistband with a small bow but opted for just the small bow in the end.
My daughter has already gotten a chance to wear the dress when her class went to see the Seattle Symphony.
