Bubble Top and Pants

This year Project Run and Play is having monthly challenges based on a free pattern/ tutorial  shared by a featured blogger. This month'
 featured blogger is from  "Alida Makes " and featured a bubble dress. You can sew up the pattern/tutorial exactly as is, change a few things, or make an item inspired by Alida's choice.  It's up to you!

Since my granddaughters are set for the winter here in Chicago, I thought I would think ahead to spring.

I bought the fabric for this outfit all because of this zipper.... 
I just love this zipper! It's turquoise with white and black teeth.

I wish I could say that the outfit went together in a snap, but I took out more errors and redid my sewing so many times that it took me days to complete the outfit since I keep taking
 "breaks to preserve my sanity!"
The black fabric kept rolling and rolling...

I wanted to make the bubble top out of a knit, so the bubble would launder well and not need any pressing.
Here's the finished project:
My granddaughter said that this outfit is made for dancing!!

And proceeded to dance during the rest of the photo shoot.


  1. She's right--you've gotta dance in an outfit like that! And smart to make the bubble out of a knit--ironing would be a bear!

  2. What a fun outfit! And that zipper is awesome!

  3. I have that same chevron fabric and I LOVE IT. Such a cute outfit, great job!

  4. That is so much fun. There is no way to be a wallflower at a party wearing that! Center of the dance floor for her. Nice job.

    1. Thanks Angela,
      Thanks. I'm glad that she thinks it a fun outfit. She wore it to school on Wednesday after we took those pictures, and wanted to wear it again on Thursday because all of her girlfriends liked it too. Ha Ha.

  5. Love that fabric - makes me want to dance. Zipper goes beautiful together!

  6. haha! I love her dancing pictures! That zipper is the coolest thing too!
