The Popover Sundress- Shirt

Season 7 of Project Run & Play is beginning today.  

I was excited to join in the sew along.  
Up first is the remix of the Popover Sundress by Oliver + S.  

I didn't go too crazy.  But I did sew up the top in knit (instead of cotton),  I sewed the straps in place (so they wouldn't come untied and slip off).  I added some big ruffles to the front and back of the top.  And, obviously, I made it into a shirt instead of a dress.

And, I tried 3 different attempts at sewing on sleeves.  I just couldn't make it work.  I wanted to make a shirt for my girl as we enter the fall season.  But it works pretty well over this shirt-- so I gave up my attempts at sleeves.

For her cute headband I followed this tutorial from girl. Inspired.  

It is a little short, since I didn't have long enough material to make the 13".  
But once I tried it on baby it fit so perfectly. 

She really rocks that look.
