A Beachy Bias

It has happened.  This very newbie seamstress has decided to join along in the Project Run and Play Sew-Along.  I have loved the talent of the past several seasons.  This will be a great way to push myself out of my comfort zone.  Between work, school starting, activities, a birthday party, and church, I doubt I'll keep up with all 6 weeks.  But I aim to do as many as I can.

So, without further adieu... let the adventure begin.  Here is my ocean ombre bias dress (It really needs a better title.  Ocean Waves?  Surf Side?  Biased Beach?  I'm really bad at this.)


Yes, that is my goof ball.  She was just a "little" hyper during our photo shoot.

The challenge was to do a remix of the talented Katy's (No Big Dill) Very Biased Skirt.  I had never cut anything on the bias before, so this was a great push to try something new.  I chose three shades of blue and mixed cotton, satin, and a little tulle.  I drafted an A-line shirt to attach to a simple bodice, with a glitter ribbon trim.  (My daughter likes sparkle.)  Then I topped it off with some rolled flowers on a simple fabric headband.



I saw this as a church dress, but my daughter sees no limitation and was ready to start playing, which I guess is a sign that it is comfortable.  Off she went... climbing the deck rails to call out to her friend in a neighboring yard...

climbing pirate ladders...

and more climbing...

always the goofball...

And even though this is blurry, I can't resist one last crazy shot.  She is one active and lovable girl.

Nice job! I'd never guess you were a newbie. I always think when they play in it during the photo shoot, it means it was a success!
