Kids Clothes Week Day 3

decisions, decisions... I was choosing between these 3 fabrics for the dress... but then I realized that I didn't have enough of any of them to do the full dress with flutter sleeves and the ruffle band :(.

An hour later... I was finally done cutting out the dress in this grey cotton shirting. Man! Those tin cans are dead useful!

I know that many of you all won't believe that I spent over an hour cutting the fabric for this little dress, but it's true.

Why? I have to confess... I'm a fretter. I fuss and worry about grainlines, markings, trying to use the least amount of fabric etc. All of that is doubled when I'm working with a new pattern. I think that's why I prefer making things without a pattern most of the time. What did you all work on today?
