Welcome to another week of Project Run and Play! I am so happy to have you here at my new site and hope you will take a minute to look around! This week I was so excited when I found out we would be celebrating Earth day with an upcycling/recycling/green week. Going into this week, the only restriction I gave myself was not to spend a penny on fabric. And I didn’t!
So where was this outfit inspired from?
My Knock Off Urban Outfitters duvet cover was cut up and I made her jacket, shirt and shoes from it! The best part was not having to ruffle ANY of those ruffles!
I could not be more pleased with how the pieces turned out. The jacket is perfect for spring…sturdy, but light and having it be all white is so fun as it goes with so many things! I love the elbow length sleeves and the ruffle at the bottom of them. I know you might thing white is a horrible color for a child, but I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to just toss it in the washing machine with some bleach and have it come out pristine!
I love the assymetrical look when it comes to coats and sewing a ruffle all the way around the bottom of the jacket finished it off.
This shirt was actually going to be a skirt until I sewed it into a shirt! The green trim came from an older shirt of mine and the ruffling around the neck was super easy, but I think it added just the perfect touch to the shirt.
I added a green zig-zag stitch on the front ruffles to give them just a little pop of color.
The jeans were fashioned from some older Maternity pants of mine and they fit her so great..in fact, they are now my favorite jeans to put her in.
Lastly, I added some ruffles to her shoes and made a big blossom hair accesory to go in her hair. So fun, right?!
And that is a wrap on this week’s outfit that cost me a grand total of $0. That has to be my favorite part of upcycling!
