Hi Everyone! Welcome to the topic of Sewing A Themed Wardrobe! I'm super excited to introduce this as a new series, one that we'll revisit a few times during the year with a new emphasis each time! For this month's topic, the theme is "So-Cal Lifestyle Scene". Early on, when we first launched Liberty Jane we introduced four themed collections: Tokyo Libby, Outback Libby, Euro Libby, and Malibu Libby. With the recent release of the American Girl® 2020 Girl Of The Year doll Joss Kendrick™, it seemed like the perfect time to revisit and refresh our Malibu Libby collection!The Sewing A Themed Wardrobe Topic Will Include:Part 1 - Topic Overview, Beach Scene Outfit Tutorial, Screen PrintingPart 2 - The CA Cami makeover - Now an on-trend coverup!Part 3 - The zip-front rashguard and other swim looksPart 4 - So-Cal Beach Accessories!Are you ready? Let's go... Patterns used in this weeks video examples:Liberty Jane Baseball Tee also available in several other sizes, Wellies, Hearts For Hearts Girls, KNC, BFC Ink, and Ellowyne. Liberty Jane Drawstring Shorts were used to make the pants. Week One task:Watch the videos and follow along to see how we created this darling look.Grab your patterns and get ready to sew!Select the fabrics you'd like to make these looks. Lightweight knits are great for the tank and a lightweight woven works great for this type of pants.If you want to add the screen print, see the link below for the resource list. If you want to use a short cut, upcycle an old tee that has a small screenprint positioned on the left front chest area. Cut the Shirt front so the graphic is positioned at the center front. Viola! You have a super cute mini graphic tee!Jump over the SWC Facebook Group for conversation and project sharing.Part 1 Tutorial - The Beach Vibes Look: Resources:Chalk Couture Website (not an affiliate, I just like this product and am happy to recommend it!)"Love" Transfer SheetScreen Print InksSmall SqueegeePink knit fabric was found at Jo-Ann FabricsThe stripe rayon print was a girls jumpsuit we found on clearance at Fred Meyer!
