So it's "Candy" week over at Project Run and Play. I had quite a few different ideas. All in very very different directions. This is what I ended up with:
Pulled Taffy Pullover with Candy Stripe Leggings
And yeah, Aevarie's a gumball.
Now, I dyed, painted and flipped the fizzle pops out of this outfit.
I started off with a white knit sheet. I dyed it orange and got this super cool tie dye look going, which to me looks kind of like pulled taffy.
I used the Recess Raglan pattern, but wanted to add something to it. So, I traced out an apothecary jar (like one of the ones from the fabric lining her hood) onto some freezer paper, ironed that "sucker" on and painted candy in it.
Then once I got the arms sewn onto the back and front, realized that the size I cut out was HUGE on Aevarie. So we went with it. I added a band to the bottom, made some really long cuffs and added a hood. I also added pockets AFTER the fact. Too much candy on the brain. lol
The leggings were made from some fun green and turquoise knit (that I just love).
We painted the candies in the shirt to match them.
Too, it's perfect for the upcoming season for her to wear to school.
I also added words to the back.....And so you know, Bubble gum SHOULD be spelled buggle gum. At least that's what my brain has decided. Again, way too much candy on my brain!
And for being such a great sport about taking pictures, Aevarie got herself an invisible sucker! (They're the best kind you know!)
I really can't wait to see what everyone else makes for Candy week!
I also may or may not have been eating chocolate and sour patch watermelons the whole time I've been writing this.....Apparently Project Run and Play wanted me to gain 10lbs before the sewing summit......
