Justice League, Peterson Style

Project Run and Play starts this week and I decided it would  be fun to participate in this sew along as well. The first weeks challenge is Art. Our outfit should be inspired by something related to art, a piece or a movement. I chose comic book art as my inspiration.


We were already big super hero fans, it's no secret Kent is named after Superman, but my appreciation for comic book artists increased exponentially when I watched a guest artist at our local comic book store sketch on demand. He was incredible, I was so impressed I talked about it for days and here I am devoting two outfits to the whole idea!

I made Lorelai a Wonder Woman costume when she was three and I've wanted to make something else Wonder Woman related ever since.


SO for this challenge I made Lorelai a retro themed Wonder Woman shirt. I found this white knit for only $1! Pay attention, it'll definitely be making a few more appearances on this blog in the future. I used my beloved freezer paper stenciling to make the WW symbol I used one of Lorelai's few shirts that fit anymore to make the pattern for the shirt and I used the same legging pattern I used for these pants to make her jean shorts.

To make Kent's shirt I sewed strips of Superman cotton and red knit fabric together and then cut my shirt front from that. I added Superman to the bottom of the back and sleeves and then around the collar to tie it all together. I had to make to make the collar an open collar so that Kent's big dome would fit through, haha. His shorts are from the same denim material as Lorelai's. I made the patterns for both his shirt and shorts from ones that he already had. Super easy.


Here are some pics of the two of them together..
