Wild Animal Acts = Circus
So, when I started planning my outfit for the Project Run and Play Circus Challenge, I wanted some wild cats!!!
BUT...I also had to make sure my outfit would please a very particular pre-teen. No cutesy animals prints for her.
So I would like to introduce...

|2 Different Size Prints in Black and White|
|Hombre Yellow to Orange|
|Black and White With a Spot of Orange|
|Hoodie Outside and Inside|
|Stripe Runs in 2 Directions|
It's All in the Details
At the bottom of the shirt front, I added a bit of whimsy with this fake drawstring complete with metal grommets.
A well executed drawstring can look effortless, cool, and casual.
How I Created That Detail
At the bottom of the shirt, I attached a 1 3/4 inch band of striped fabric that had been serged on one side. I used a 1/2 inch seam.
Lastly, I folded under the edging to the backside of the shirt and sewed it down by stitching in the ditch. This created a finished 5/8 inch band all around the bottom of the shirt. This band also encased the ends of the twill tape.
