Get ready for summer with Project Jet Set

This week the newest pattern collection from Project Run & Play released: Project Jet Set. Project Run & Play releases a new collection twice a year. This time the collection includes twelve patterns, from which I tested five. In this blog post I will show four of them.

I will start with the three patterns designed by Jennifer from Jennuine Design: The Cruise Culottes, the Overlook Raglan, and the Camper Hat. They go together very well, so I decided to make a set. The Cruise Culottes come in four options: standard culottes in shorts or pedal pusher length, or culottes with one or two gathered tiers added. I chose the option with one tier. The pattern is designed for light weight woven fabrics, and has pockets with an optional faux pocket flap. I used a light weight cotton fabric.

The Overlook Raglan is designed for light weight flowy fabrics and comes in two lengths. It has two options for the short sleeves: hem or cuff. I chose the cuff. For the larger sizes the placket neckline closure is optional. For the smaller sizes it is requiredd for the head to be able to fit through. What I love about the construction of this pattern, is that most seams are sewn with French seams. This gives a neat finish inside. I used rayon fabric for this top.

Some details.

I made two Camper Hats for Miss SieBe. One in the same fabrics as the culottes and raglan top, and one in pink and green with pink flowers. I think they will get a lot of wear in the summer. Since they are reversible, Miss SieBe now has four options to match them with her clothes. I am making one for Little Mr SieBe too, and hope to make one for myself too. This patten comes in new born until adult sizes, so is suitable for everyone.

The last pattern of the collection I will show is the Cancun Cover Up. It is perfect on the beach after swimming! This pattern comes in two lengths (hip and knee), has two hood options (regular and pixie), and a large front pocket. I made knee length, and the pixie hood. I used double gauze fabric. It can be made out of any fabric you like and think is suitable for this purpose, though when using knits, it is advised to size down.

The other pattern I tested is the Saltillo Swimsuit. It peeks through a bit underneath the Cancun. This is a lovely swimsuit with all the feminine options! So absolutely recommendable!

It was quite a time ago that I wrote my last blog post. Other things of life come in the way sometimes. I hope that it won’t take me this long again to write my next post. In between you can follow me on Instagram (@siebesew), where I post more often. Also, I will announce new blog post there.
