K. (age 5) insisted before Christmas that her favourite colour was no longer purple but black (!!) so when Form and Fabric had their free shipping promotion, I let her pick a couple of prints. I think she has a good eye! This is Stylized Flower and Damask from the Shades of Black line.
I made size 7 because this kid is growing like crazy and I want it to fit in the spring, too. I'm going to try to save it for a trip we're taking but that might be tough because she knows I've been working on it and is always excited to get a new dress.
She's having a tough time choosing a button so the back is not finished yet. (our collection is so huge now we *almost* have too many choices!) And the skirt looks strange because the elastic is all bunched at the back but I didn't have the patience to fiddle with it today.
It might be the only project I get time to work in in Kids Clothing Week -- we have a case of lice in the house so I've been spending lots of extra time cleaning and washing hair, etc. Yuck.
Stylized Flower 1 yard (with just scraps left over, yay!) $7.56
