Project Run and Play, Season 11, Week 3: Kids' Night Out - an "All that Glitters" Outfitsplay designed by Näh-Connection

Week 3 of Project Run and Play is here and I’m still competing. And not only competing. I actually won week 2, which is pretty incredible. Thank you all for your votes. I couldn’t do this without you! But, now it’s time for week 3. The theme this week is “All that Glitters”. If you have been following my little blog for more than a day, you’ll know that I’m not a very glittery person (besides my big love for my glitter Lindens). I love to sew everyday wear. I want to see those clothes again and again on my kids – and not just for one special occasion. To stay true to myself I decided to sew something for a Kids’ Night Out. I.e. fun, yet stylish, comfortable, yet edgy clothes with glitter and sparkle thrown in for a fun mix. I wanted to create a special look full of details that would be perfect both for a nice family dinner in a beautiful restaurant, but also for running around on the playground.

We took all photos at home. I had been thinking about suitable locations (cafè, museum, etc.), but just couldn’t come up with the perfect one. Well, it turns out all we needed was a burgundy blanket for some texture and a nice black background. Seriously, if you don’t have a backdrop support system, you should get one. I got mine for christmas and this was the best gift ever. It’s not a pro system, but suddenly I’m able to get nice pics indoors. Yay! Anyways, I’m in love with these pictures, so prepare yourself for an extreme picture overload. They are all just too good ;) My husband entertained the kids while I clicked away and that black background together with two cute kids in their golden/burgundy clothes just worked out perfectly.

Let’s talk clothes. My daughter’s outfit consists of two pieces: A modified Little Betty Top by Sewpony Vintage (looser fit, longer ruffles, high low hem) sewn in a gorgeous golden glitter jersey. The neckline and sleeves are finished with burgundy jersey. For her pants I used burgundy corduroy. Leggings would have worked well with the look, too, but my daughter has leggings in all colors of the rainbow while she is in constant need of some “real” pants. As she doesn’t like skinny jeans, I made her some comfy pants with elastic waist (+ functioning drawstring from some glittery cording) and shirred leg hems. The pants have two cargo pockets, that have a flat top with a gathered lower part. A burgundy ribbon with golden spots is stitched along the flat top and a diamond shaped faux leather applique adds some uniqueness. The pants are based on an Ottobre pattern, Nr 18 from issue 1/2014.

For my son’s outfit I worked with two patterns by Titchy Threads. The t-shirt is  a Safari Raglan in burgundy jersey with a modified pocket (some more golden faux leather). The shorts are based on the Small Fry Skinny Jeans, but adjusted for fit (the grey upcycled jeans fabric has 0 stretch). The front pockets are cut straight and the back features a welt pocket – both giving a less casual look. The burgundy top stitching, zip-fly and hand-sewn button hole make these some very professional shorts that my son loves. My son’s college jacket is based on an Ottobre sweatshirt pattern (Nr 17, issue 16/2014) and may well be my favorite piece of the three PRP weeks so far. I’ve wanted to sew such a jacket for a long time and this one turned out exactly as I imagined it. I traced a photo of a tiger in Adobe Illustrator using the pen tool to create a stencil. My friend Miriam was kind enough to cut it from freezer paper using her Silhouette. I then ironed it onto the back of the finished jacket and used golden fabric paint. I just love how it turned out. It’s absolutely perfect for my little rockstar.

Both outfits are finished with two self-drafted masks from the golden faux leather on which I glued some beautiful feathers and rhinestones. The masks are held in place with white/golden rubber bands. I love how the masks pull the outfits together and give the photoshoot that added pizzaz. I hope you like both outfits as much as I do. If so, then please go to the Project Run and Play Blog and show your love by voting for my Kids’ Night Out look.

    Annika, your kids look so lovely in their outfits! Such wonderful details, love them. As someone who likes to see my kids wearing things I make for them again and again I would say, they definitely will! It looks like you guys have had a lot of fun taking pics!

    • Annika Ferk says:

      Thank you so much for your nice comments. We sure had a lot of fun and these clothes will get a ton of wear. Too sad that they didn’t hit the nerves of the PRP readers. I guess I’ll have to leave this week :(

  • Raphaelle says:

    Your children look like royalty in these pics! I love the outfits too. The jacket with the tiger, the diamond patches on the pants (love the pockets!), the gold top… It’s all really lovely and useful for everyday!

  • Jenn says:

    Wow, again, so professional. What a great collection of pieces and lovely photography.
