It’s here! The next pattern I designed for Project Run & Play is the Parfait Polo! This pattern is part of the Project Smooth Sorbet pattern collection, and over the next few posts I’ll be sharing everything I sewed from the whole collection!
Parfait Polo pattern is such a classic! This pattern includes a polo shirt and three dress options. The Polo Shirt is a slim fitting polo shirt. There is an option for puffed sleeves. Bands finish the sleeves and pull them in for a tailored look. A classic a-line dress sits at the waist and reaches to mid calf. A drop waist polo dress with two gathered tiers hits at the knee. A polo dress with a circle skirt shape below the dropped waist reaches to just above the knee.
During development and testing, I sewed up quite a few versions of this pattern. Here are some of the many Parfait Polos I sewed:
An early version in size 2 for Baby in camo fabric from the stash.
Size 3 dress with circle skirt using fabric from the stash for Tina.
Size 3 dress with gathered tiers for Tina using fabric from the Project Nature Adventure collaboration.
Size 6X for Lowell using fabric from the stash. After this one, I bumped him down to a size 6.
An early prototype in size 8 for David. After this one I bumped him down to size 6X. Another thing that changed was the way the placket is constructed. I’m really proud of the finished result, it’s so professional and clean, and every single one of the testers ended up with amazing looking plackets! Not the messy one with drag lines like you see here!
A Parfait Polo shirt and 3 Parfait Polo dresses for Annie!
And then for the final collection makes and for the lookbook, I sewed up even more Parfait Polos! Each of the kids got at least one…
They all (except Tina) have a version of the Limone Lounge Set on the bottom made from solid knit in mink from Art Gallery Fabrics.
Lowell and Baby have sienna brick solid knit from Art Gallery Fabrics on top.
David is wearing a polo made from camouflage solid knit from Art Gallery Fabrics.
Tina’s tiered Parfait Polo dress is made from cinnamon solid knit from Art Gallery Fabrics.
We made a Parfait Polo dress for a little friend using mauvelous solid knit from Art Gallery Fabrics.
And Annie got several! In fact I sewed an entire capsule wardrobe for her which mixes and matches so nicely! Above is a Parfait Polo with a Limone Lounge Set maxi skirt. Both of these fabrics are from Art Gallery Fabrics. They have some beautiful new solid knit fabrics, this is their solid knit in spruce and on the bottom is solid knit in mink.
This Parfait Polo is made from a vertical stripe ponte knit from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. It is paired with the Bacca Bootcuts pattern that I made into a skirt! (Tutorial coming soon…)
And here it is from the back with a cute Fetta purse pattern from the collection too!
And it looks amazing paired with the Baie Blazer and another Limone maxi skirt!
