I’m so excited to introduce Kelly from Sewing in No Man’s Land today with her creation for WWYM I (What Would You Make)! She was one of my competitors in the Project Run and Play contest. Kelly would send emails to all the designers competing listing out every detail she loved about each of our outfits…..she’s a good egg so thoughtful and so talented too! I looked forward every week to see her gorgeous photos and outfits and I think this new WWYM Challenge was partly created because I didn’t want Project Run and Play to end! Make sure to visit her blog Sewing in No Man’s Land to check out her sewing adventures in Dili East Timor (I had to Google it….I have no idea how the fabric I sent actually got there!)
The top is a simple tie tank and rather unoriginal, but the shorts, oh how I LOVE these shorts!! They are totally retro with their four big buttons.
They are made from one single pattern piece and are incredibly comfy
No getting in the way of any playing here!
Because it is made from one pattern piece there are no seams tugging or pulling, even on a chubby bum.
What absolutely AMAZED me was that unlike every single other item I have ever made Evie she did not fight me at all to put it on!
I was absolutely floored! She didn’t cry and try to get it off or anything. She immediately ran off and made a new friend
I absolutely love how they look in the fabulous fabric Ashley sent, flower overlay, such cool fabric. I actually used the wrong side of the fabric just to added some pop to the top.
My husband actually asked if I put the shirt on backwards ha! I am so excited to share the tutorial and pattern with you! Hope on over to Sewing In No Mans Land to see both!
Thank you soooo much Ashley for the fabulous fabric and a much needed visit to the beach….
Even if it did means some sand munching ha!
Stay tuned for another creation using the same fabric tomorrow by Adrianna from Crafterhours!
