My actual signature look.

So remember Project Run & Play? Way back when? Ok, so it was only the beginning of the year, but it feels like ages ago. I sound like a cheeseball, but it was a huge highlight for me in my "blogging" life. :) Project Run & Play was one of the things that got me sewing in the first place. I think linking up to their sew along was one of my very first posts. Awwww. Baby Lila! I always thought it would be so fun to actually compete. And sure enough, as soon as I let go and stopped caring so much about blogging, I got the chance to be in Project Run & Play. Funny how things work out. It was such a huge honor for me and the timing, though unexpected was perfect. I also got so much farther ahead than I thought I would. SO far ahead, in fact, that I was completely stumped by the last challenge "Signature Look." I had no clue what to do. I interpreted it to mean "what I would wear." Which is grays, or light blues in any form. In other words, hashtag boring once I made the outfits. So I second guessed myself, went to the store last minute, and bought the fanciest, most ridiculously expensive fabric I could find and stayed up into the wee hours finishing. In the end, what I made fit my little girls personalities much more than they actually fit my own signature style. I'm proud of the dresses, but they weren't revolutionary and they definitely weren't me. So today, I thought I'd share my original "signature style" or rather, what I sewed first and wish I'd stuck with, if only for the sake of my bank account. ;) The dresses were sort of "muslins" to what I ended up making for the final, but much more relaxed and likable, in my opinion. Also they both have pockets. The end. :) Just kidding. You know my rambles rarely end so succinctly. ;) Always, a little more to add, my friends. I ended up taking these pictures (way too many btw!) long after the PR&P was over, when the weather was nice, and I'm thankful to have the memory of my two little duckies. They are the best grand finale a mama could ever ask for. Shoe-less, wild, and very much as they are. (Except their hair is done here, which isn't quite so normal these days. :)
