Project Run and Play is an institution in the children’s sewing community. The talent that makes up the PRP alumni is staggering. When I heard that a group of past designers was putting together a capsule wardrobe collection, Project Farmer’s Market, I jumped at the chance to be a part of it! I was honored to be able to sew up a few pieces of the collection and to get together with a couple of past PRP contestants for an epic photo shoot was like a dream come true.
For our shoot, I joined Lisa of Mabey She Made It and Sabra of Sew A Straight Line. My kids had met theirs at past photo shoots or park playdates and it was so fun to see them instantly get comfortable with each other. You could tell this wasn’t their first rodeo as they turned on the charm and smiles and nailed whatever us crazy moms told them to do. Totally blogger kids and such cuties!
A HUGE shout out to Raspberry Creek Fabrics for sponsoring this photo shoot. All of my fabrics are from the shop.
For my looks I sewed up 5 pieces from the collection (and one freebie!). I sewed the Banana Boat Tee, Soleil Skirt, Turnip Up Trousers, Up Beet Tee, and Jonagold Jumper. The collection is full of both girl and unisex patterns and a huge size range making them something you can use for years to come. I really love patterns that I can use for multiple views and more than one kid. These patterns checked all my boxes.
Charlie got a pair of Turnip Up short and an Up Beet Tee from Celina of Petit a Petite. This is such a great summer outfit.
The Up Beet Tee has such a unique construction. The sleeve piece extends to the back yoke for such a cool look. I love the stripe and solid pairing- it really highlights the shoulder detail. Of course I had to throw on a little vinyl. This little guy is looking so ‘fresh’ it was totally appropriate 😉 I used a font and image available in Cricut Design Space for a tee that was perfect for our produce themed shoot.
The Turnip Up Trousers are so full of amazing details. I love the bound seams and he loves the knit waistband. With multiple pockets these are perfect for those little treasure hunters out there.
I love this easy tee and shorts combo. It’s comfy but definetely not boring. With unconventional details these patterns are great additions to my pattern collection.
My Sophie is at the top of most kids sizing and I was thrilled to see she could squeeze into this look by Jess from Lil Luxe Collection. The Banana Boat Tee and Soleil Skirt were just perfect for this fashion forward tween.
The Banana Boat Tee is so darn cute! I want it in my size! Sleeve cuffs, button tabs, side drawstring rouching, and a wide boat neckline take this tee over the top. So many darling details!
In a drapey rayon spandex, it pairs perfectly with the Soleil Skirt but also looks so cute with jeans.
The Soleil Skirt has a faux front button placket, back elastic waist, pockets, three lengths and optional suspender straps. It’s one I can see turning to again and again.
The Jonagold Jumper was the one I was most excited to sew up. My girls have been begging for overalls and it’s just so hard to get them that fit them both in the length and width. Shortalls can be soooo short on their long legs and long overalls tend to be capris 😉 This pattern is so full of options they can have a closetful now!
I sewed up the squared bib, shorts version but there are also pant and skirt options. You can add patch pockets to the bib and front hips too.
This simple chambray version will get worn to death this summer! I sewed up the free Seed headscarf and it adds the perfect touch to this outfit.
I’m so thrilled to be able to share this amazing collection with you. What a pleasure it was to be back in PRP mode for this shoot! For some serious eye candy, sit back and relax with the brilliant Lookbook– so much goodness in one place.
