Kids Clothes Week Challenge, Day 5

Day 5 of the Challenge, and I have a dress to show for my exertions today.
I have had this fabric in my stash for a few, if not 4 or more, years, and I finally decided to cut into it. I sometimes get discontinued patterns from the Fabric Store where I work, and every once in a while I find out why they were discontinued.
This pattern was for a 6, and it hangs on her something terrible.
I am more than a little irritated, mostly with myself for not taking the 3 minutes to measure the girl and the pattern pieces.

Oh well, now I have to decide whether this dress gets packed away for a year or so, or if I take the bodice in.

She's being a good sport and wearing it anyway, just hiking up the shoulder straps when they get droopy.


  1. What a week! Nice job. Love, love, love this fabric. Don't suppose you know where I could pick some up, eh?

  2. a couple of the things that i've sewed my daughter this week have turned out too big, so maybe they will fit next year {sigh}

  3. what a cool fabric! I am so jealous

  4. I can see why it took you a while to cut into this fabric. So pretty. But the dress turned out lovely as well. And you have to admit, too big is way better than too small.

    Also, love the hungry caterpillar pants. Those have got to be a hit.
