Pop Overalls–PR&P Season 7, Week 1

Thursday, September 12, 2013

I wasn’t planning on sewing along with Project Run & Play this week. I’m in the middle of a totally different project. Well, as you can see the submissions are due today, and I suddenly had some inspiration to sew something yesterday afternoon. Do they have a support group for this kind of thing!?!?

For week 1 they choose to remix the Oliver+S free Popover Sundress Pattern. From Popover, I bring you Pop Overalls. Cheesy, I know. Sometimes that’s just the form the inspiration takes. I kept the shape of the front of the dress the same, but extended the area of contrast fabric and added facing. I also made the arm hole come down further for the overall look. I put a little elastic under the arm holes to make it more fitted.

The back gets a little more interesting where I raised it up. I added angled straps to mimic the overall look.

Tandy wasn’t the most cooperative model for these last minute photos this morning.

The vintage cherry applique and pom pom trim where just icing on top.
