Today we’re going to share the final result of our sewing for the Peter Pan inspired look. We sewed 11 pieces of clothes for kids inspired by the Peter Pan story. Whenever I’m preparing for a big event like this when I’m going to collaborate with a photographer, I begin by creating a Pinterest board and sharing it with them. This is to share what I have in mind going in. But this time, my photographer far exceeded my expectations! Her photos far surpassed anything I had pinned. Working with Kalli June has been a pleasure for sure!
Special thanks to Kalli June Photography for the beautiful photography of my kids in this post.
When I picked out the fabrics (the Tundra Fabrics in the Winter Freeze color way from Hawthorne Supply Co) I intended to lean into a winter in Neverland sort of theme. But when Kalli June shared the photos with me, they were so warm and comfortable, I knew we could go with a Never Leaving Neverland theme!
For the lookbook I put together for the Project Lounge Library, I had such fun with Kalli June’s photos when making this photo essay inspired by Peter Pan. Many of the “stories” in the lookbook begin with a title page that resembles an antique book. These were really fun to make. The first layout spread in the Never Leaving Neverland story features Peter Pan himself. Carefree, reckless, and quite loving when you get right down to it. David wears the George Hoodie and Joseph Joggers patterns on these pages.
The next page is Wendy’s page. Our Annie is very motherly, like we imagine Wendy would have been in Neverland. And you can see that her little charges are very attached to her too! I included a favorite quote from the Peter Pan book on each page. Annie wears the Alice Top and Novella Pinafore on these pages.
Next up we have our little lost boy! He was quite a character as we wandered through the woods on this day, and it was only by the genius of Kalli June that we ended up with any photos of him at all. He was insisting on being carried most of the time… Baby wears the Journal Jumpsuit and Biography Bomigan in these photos.
Next up we have a page dedicated to our little Tinkerbell! Full of life and always ready for another photo, Tina really plays the part of Tinkerbell quite perfectly. Annie expended a ton of effort making her this darling pair of wings. She started with a cardboard shape of wings, painted it, wrapped them in tulle, and then created the elastic arm bands so Tina could wear them. Tina is wearing a Story Tunic and Joseph Joggers in these photos.
And finally we have a page dedicated to our pirate! Lowell fell in love with Smee somehow, and practiced playing the part for a long time. David spend some time in the garage making the swords for the pirate fight, and they had a grand old time which Kalli June captured in amazing detail! Lowell is wearing a Nini Noni Nightwear shirt, Prose Cargo Pants, and a Bookish Beanie.
