Anyway, where were we before i detoured to the soap box?
Joann's had some adorable fabric the last time i ventured out. It was beckoning to be made into a pair of pants for a little girl.

I can't believe these actually turned out! When the ladies at the fabric counter ask what your intent is for the fabric, i always joke that it will be clothing for my daughter...or really cute reusable napkins. :) Thankfully these worked out and didn't need to be repurposed. She begs to wear these almost everyday--i'm delighted that they are loved and used. Hoping with the dresses that Achoo made her last year and these items (one in the wings where i try to use the pant pattern to make shorts out of a green gingham) will hopefully get us through the summer...or two if we are lucky! Now, comes the task of finding plain shirts that don't advertise "Daddy's Little Angel" or the like. Hopefully it doesn't come down to making shirts...more likely we'd invest in a bunch of Western shirts before we did that! :)
Maybe for the winter, i will try my hand at cordory for a skirt and pants.
