I took part in the Colour Run. This is a 5K charity run/walk event. Don't get this confused with fabric colour that bleeds when it's washed. There was no way I was going to miss running with the family.The kids had a ball. Having the opportunity to get messy with the colour stations along the way and being given colour dust to get more messy at the end was such fun.

Everyone wears a Color run white t-shirt and you whatever else you want. Tutes, Butterfly wings, crazy wigs - it's a community event. I was advised to wear another top under the t-shirt to protect my skin from becoming garishly coloured.
On this skort I used the floral print on the side pockets. There's no elastic in the waistband.And I finally got to add the gripper elastic to the legging hem, gifted to me by Sarah.
I did a sway back adjustment on the centre back seam of the skirt and the leggings but cut the skirt pieces on the fold.
My first blue version felt short so I added the 5 cm on the hem of this new version. This first version needed gripper elastic on the legging hems so I've now added the elastic to it.
The built in support was wonderful. I had enough of the floral print to make the Y version of the XYT top.
Well there wasn't enough length for the long top so I used piping in brown to add the extra pieces on the shoulders.
The back skirt is a bit a-line.
Dear fashion police, please overlook this whole matching set. I promise not to intentionally do this again. Unless it looks good:)
The XYT top is long for workouts.
But I can wear the top shorter for weekend wear. The whole outfit was great for the Color Run.
This is as color messy as I got. My nephew enjoyed throwing colour dust on me. I'll spare you the not pretty post-event shot - It's not at all pretty.
