Here Comes the Sun {Project Run and Play}

Project Run and Play has been so fun to be a part of! If you haven’t yet, run over and check out the outfits for this week and then make sure to vote! If you didn’t guess already…I’d LOVE your vote!:)
There are few things that I love more than color, color, color! When I heard that this fourth week was all about picking one color and making an outfit around it, I knew exactly the color to choose!

Yellow has always been such a happy color to me..and with spring in full bloom (or as full bloom as you get here in Las Vegas), I thought it was a perfect match.

I LOVE the trendy combination of stripes and floral so I grabbed 2 different colors of yellow and made striped fabric. I wanted a simple dress for the bold fabric and love how this little A-line shape came together.
I added extra large pockets to “fun” it up a bit and to give my daughter plenty of room to carry her little toys in. I also added some fun pleating around the bottom, the neck and even used it to make some flutter sleeves.
I love how playful and fun the dress is and how it fits her personality.
One of my favorite details is the pleating detail I did going down the sides of the dress.
I wanted to think outside the box when I  put the stripes and floral together, so I whipped up some fun accessories to add to the outfit…and I think they pull everything together just right.
The brooch and hair clip were made using THIS tutorial.
The shoe clips are removable and interchangeable.
I even made a cute cuff out of the pleating and a small flower.
And that is my yellow outfit for the week…Seeing my girl in it reminded me of the song “Here Comes the Sun”, and thus the title!

    Oh Kiki, your pictures are so perfectly stunning! Those balloons in the one pic is my favorite; it looks like they are going to carry her away! And I just love your blog slogan- it speaks directly to my core! Your clothes have such a great energy to them. I think that’s my favorite part of your designs. Love. love. love…
