Project Watercolor Beach with Project Run and Play

Project Watercolor Beach with Project Run and Play

Today I am so excited to present my two new patterns that will release next week. These patterns are part of a capsule collection created by me and other designers for Project Run and Play's newest collaboration.

Meet the Golden Dress and the Lemon Tee for Project Watercolor Beach, a collection of 10 patterns that combine with each other to create a complete summer wardrobe for children everywhere.


For us Portuguese people the beach is part of our DNA :-) . Yeah, we love the sun, the sand and the sea and, as soon as the sun is out and the weather starts getting warmer, the beaches get full of people, young and old. Half of our country's border is shore line and beaches, and the weather makes Portugal one of Europe's favorite summer destination.


So it wasn't hard for me to get inspired to design two "beachy" patterns for children. The Golden Dress will be a staple in my daughter's warm weather wardrobe, and the Lemon Tee will dress both my son and my daughter throughout the year.


The Golden Dress can be worn as a cool layer to go to and from the beach, and also as a stylish and comfortable dress around town.  The Golden Dress uses woven fabrics and looks best sewn in lightweight fabrics with a nice drape. It has no closures so it's perfect for little girls to put it on and take it off by themselves. It features an elastic waist, a neckline facing, and for the biggest sizes also has a back tie. Oh, and did I mention pockets? Yes, it has side seam pockets which my daughter loved (this was our conversation during the photo shoot:)

Me: You can put your hands in the pockets.
Joana: What pockets?
(I showed her the pockets in the dress.)

I kid you not... This really happened.

My other pattern in the collection is the Lemon Tee. It is a staple for both boys and girls, with several options of sleeves and color blocked body. The Lemon Tee is a perfect place to add a digital design... and yes, there are some really fun ones included in this collection!

This pattern comes in sizes 12 months through 14 years old, so you will be able to make different tees for you children for a long time. It is designed for jersey knit fabrics and features a straight fit, not too snug nor too loose, just right for both boys and girls. The sleeves can be short or long, with or without cuffs, and the color-blocking pattern pieces take out all the guess work to make it a super quick sew.
