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.
