Scooby. We’re here to solve a mystery!


It’s 80s cartoon week over at Project Run and Play and I’m sewing along =)  I was a kid of 80s cartoons myself and one of my favorites was always Scooby Doo! When my 20 year old son was little he was also a huge Scooby do fan, it was all he wanted to watch for a few years, and now my daughter is starting to watch it.


I asked for her input on on a Scooby Doo inspired outfit and she went straight for Daphne. Daphne loves fashion, mysteries, danger, and purple.  We went out to take these photos and my daughter insisted she needed some mystery solving supplies. We settled on a ghost catcher (butterfly net) and a magnifying glass.



For the pattern I used the Laurette, coming soon from Greenstyle Creations. I tested this and you will hear a lot more about it very soon. I thought it would make a perfect modern day Daphne dress, suitable for a three year old.


We added some stylish purple hi-tops and a sparkly headband.


I used the Hi-Lo option for the Laurelette. I just love the Hi-lo with the cowl neck, so chic and cool.


We had a blast with out Daphne inspired look =) I have loved sewing along with Project Run and Play for the first time and hope to complete all of the weeks. Keep your eye out for the Laurelette from Greenstyle! More details and photos to come!
