Wow! Has it really been 3 years!! Well obviously I took some time off for many reasons I will not bore you with but I am back. I am super excited for this years Project Run and Play! The format they are doing this year is so exciting. Feel free to read about it here

The first challenge up is this fabulous Bubble Dress done by Alida Makes! You can check out her post here with the FREE Tutorial Don't you simply love that sailboat print?! It makes me dream of the ocean.

As for my take on the pattern, I wasn't feeling a dress right now I think because I've been SO cold lately with the low temperatures outside (and not to mention my husband wants to keep our house at FREEZING levels at all times) so I knew I at least wanted something to cover my little ones legs. I started out not really knowing what I was going for but already had this really nice flouncy, stretchy knit fabric I was dying to use up. So I decided to just jump in and see what I ended up with!
After about an hour of sewing- the Bubble Romper was born ;)

First off-check out this fabric! Isnt it super cool? It has a very slight ruffle, is super light and ever so stretchy, what more could you ask for?

While creating this piece, right about halfway through I took it to have my girly try it on and as soon as she saw it she shouted "Oh my goodness my own jumpsuit!" Is that not hilarious? I am not sure if these kind of outfits are cool among this age category but I was sure relieved when I saw her reaction.

Thankfully she loves it and hasn't wanted to take it off! Needless to say I did not have to twist her arm or bribe her to get photos of her wearing it ;)

I think my favorite part of the outfit is the back! She helped me decide on the halter straps. We were going to go with kriss-kross straps but I was reminded to much of a clown suit. I don't know maybe it was just me but I'm pleased with the end result.

Thanks Alida for the awesome tutorial and inspiration! I know one little girl that is very happy!
