For this week’s theme I decided my son needed in on the fun, since he was left out of the Circle Skirt Remix, but with sportswear, Two Can Play. I created 5 pieces – polo shirt with woven collar, woven shorts, knit t-shirt with woven trim, woven skort with knit shorts underneath, and kerchief.
Using seersucker (one of my favorite fabrics) and knit allowed me to make comfortable clothes to play in while still focusing on textural details. The polo and shorts feature reverse applique diamonds, with stripes going in contrasting directions, a design detail I also used on the waistband and pockets of the shorts.
The t-shirt and skort feature more directional play with stripes, with the main skirt stripes vertical while the stripes of the faux wrap go up and around. Her outfit also features pleated trim on which I made sure to match up the stripes perfectly across the pleats. Finally, I made a kerchief to keep hair out of my little model’s eyes, and we set the two kids loose in the park to put these clothes through their paces.
This outfit is so cute and I love her skirt. Good luck this week!
I love your colour choices – it works so well for boys and girls! I also love seersucker – it takes me back to my own childhood!!!
I’d been dying to try to make a little polo for my boy, but I was stuck on how to do a collar. This one looks so great. Maybe I’ll give it a go! Lovely clothes.
I’m afraid of polo shirts, so I’m in awe of yours!
ADORABLE! I found you through the Family Ever After link up and will definitely be back. Super cute sewing and super cute children!
Adorable – I’m in love with seersucker and really like how you’ve added texture with the pleats and applique. Very summery.
This is darling!! I LOVE all your sewing at Project Run and Play and just had to come over and follow your blog!
I have been following and voting for project run and play for a while now. Often times I have a really hard time picking who I want to vote for. This time it was no contest. Your outfits are amazing. I only wish I had the skill set to make them for my children. Your photos for this one are absolutely beautiful too.

You had my vote!!! I like this orange! Have a nice week end 😉
I’m happy to follow your blog, it’s such inspiring!
I voted for this! Did it occur to you while you were sewing that this looks really Dutch? Their national color is even orange! So adorable, and I love all the pleated trim.

Oh my goodness!! This is my dream–matching boy/girl outfits. So, so cute! Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!
Do you sell the pattern for boys shorts.grandson gets left out alot. I just havent found pattern I like?
I don’t yet…but I do have something in the works. In the meantime, THIS is my favorite pants pattern for purchase, and THIS is my favorite free pattern (size 3 only). Both pants patterns can easily be cut off at the knee to make shorts.
