Description

I picked up some amazing fabric at my local fabric shop.  It's a 2011 Alexander Henry print called "kitty garden".  Since my local store isn't online yet, here's a place you can pick some up yourself - http://www.jandofabrics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=cat34728 I picked up 3 yards of the fabric, without being sure what I wanted to do with it.  I also got a 1/2 yard of the coordinating Gerbers print

I don't have a pattern yet, but I'm thinking of making a simple knee-length dress with an elasticized waist, kimono sleeves, and bias finished hem and waist.  I may have even found a downloadable pattern that will work.

Made my first muslin.  I'm glad I did.  I made a medium so that it would fit at the hips.  That was great.  The top is just a bit big.  Looks like I'll be doing some pattern adjustments.

So, I went downstairs and got to making changes and sewing.  I super <3 my finished dress!  Because my fashion fabric wasn't really wide enough, I made some changes to the skirt portion of the pattern, using a single panel and including the selvedge of the fabric, which was super adorable.  I'd love to know what you think.
