It’s the final week of Project run & play, and the theme for this week is “Signature Style”. This week was the easiest for me to plan and was actually the first look out of all four weeks that I had figured out! My signature style is definitely all about luxurious fabric, unique details, and a bit of Japanese influence. I’ve dubbed my collection for the week “Linen & Liberty”.
First up is an ivory linen blouse sewn from a modified Oliver + s apple picking dress in size 4/5. The buttons are of a beautiful green vintage glass which I found on Etsy.
Here’s another look at those buttons. I just love how the green pops on this otherwise plain top.
Next is a pair of striped linen wide leg pants. The pattern I got from this Japanese sewing book. I sewed them in size 110 from a lovely linen bought from Joann’s.
The pants are quite simple which makes for a crazy fast sew!
And I really love those patch pockets!
The last piece of the ensemble (and the “arc de triomphe”) is a sweatshirt sewn from the gorgeous floral cotton fleece by Liberty of London. I sewed it from a modified Oliver + s school bus tee, adding in extra width to the pattern plus ribbing on the bottoms of the sleeves and at the waist.
I also included some decorative stitching at the neck.
Close up of the print. It looks like an impressionist painting.. I just love it!
And now for some shots of the outfit on! First just the blouse and pants.
Looking quite lovely!
The outfit all together!
Well there you have it, week 4 finished! I’m in love with that sweatshirt and will be making one for myself 😉 And as luck would have it, I have enough fabric to make one more for a special little girl out there! If you’d like to purchase it for a little lady in your life, please check out my Etsy listing for it here.
