Sometimes I'm surprised at how far one yard of fabric can go. I made a purse and now this dress and there is still a sizeable scrap left. I LOVE this fabric. This dress is so sweet. Who doesn't love a sweet little girl in a pretty dress? (Even if she rarely lets you brush her hair)

Still working on lighting. Here is that Minnie Mouse fabric. This one passes the test. She loves it. I changed the top and cut off the stirring. Adding the flutter sleeves is what makes her happy. Since there are no fasteners, she can take it off and on herself.

I didn't think I'd be making any more flutter sleeve dresses. Turns out, I was wrong. She seems to really like this style. I also didn't think I was in the business of making any more little girl dresses. Turns out, I was wrong again. I'm going to spend some time this week looking for patterns and actually figuring out how to make these the right way. This was made from a woman's pajama top.

This is by far the most expensive fabric I've ever purchased. A sweet girl who was with me at the fabric store just HAD to have Minnie Mouse. Guess what? She won't wear it. We've tried it two times and it is too uncomfortable for her. Today I might cut it up into one of those flutter sleeved numbers. Or, I may save it and make her wear it as a wedding dress because the price of this fabric is comparable.
