Project run and play sew along, spring break challenge

This second week's theme got me instantly enthousiastic. Making an outfit with your favourite vacation spot in mind, so fun! For us this is definately the UK. We picked our destination for this summer and for the third year in a row we will be camping there for three weeks. The rascals have seen quite a lot of the UK already, but we haven't shown them London yet. I think this will be more fun for them (and us) when they are a little older. But for this week's outfit London's calling! A garment inspired by the British punk rock bands.

I started with some more shorts sewing, a quick and easy pair made out of sweatshirt fabric, based on the basic kid pants by Made. Perfect for gym class at school.

The shirt is a recess raglan. The guitar on the back is made with textile paint and I added the record on the front with transfer paper. I wanted to try this for quite some time now and finally got around to it. It works perfectly, the only downside is that the fabric becomes a bit stiff. Hopefully this will improve by washing.



Okay here comes the photoshoot fun
