When I found out what the challenge was, it took me back to the days of being a tomboy. Before boys had cooties. When we ran around, climbed trees, played basketball and football and looked for lizards. I wanted to capture that in this outfit I designed.
I made the pants, the vest and embellished the T-shirt.
The pants were really fun to make and came together just as I had visioned. I made them with plenty of pockets for all those good finds when you’re out playing.
The vest was challenging! I really wanted to throw it to the birds!! I didn’t have an exact idea on how this was going to come together so I made it up as I went. Sometimes it works for me, and sometimes it makes more work. Anyway, after much effort, the blasted thing turned out and now I LOVE it. Adding the pockets and soft collar transformed it from blah to fab.
And the T-shirt, well it was the easiest! I just did a freezer paper stencil, ironed it on, slapped some fabric paint on and let it dry. BAM! It’s the part of the outfit that seals the deal.
All together, it says , “I’m tough enough to hang out with the boys, but I’m still a princess.”
WOW! It’s all I can say! The ladies did it again! I love all the variations and I love the styles! Great job everyone!
