This wasn't on my list, but as I was going through my stash, I came across this ol' fabric I bought a little over a year ago in the LA Fabric District. At the time I had bought it for the KCWC spring of 2011 (I believe) and my first attempt with this fabric was an epic fail. It wasn't the fabric, but the pattern I used. Perhaps it was due to Lala's cranium that the neck opening wasn't big enough or sleep deprivation caused me to not process the instructions, WHATEVER the case may be...
Grumbling a few unfavorable words I tossed the fabric onto my heaping pile of used fabrics never to be seen again, at least until now.
This time, I used Jess' raglan tee tutorial, which btw is one of my favorite patterns. I've used this several times and every time Lala's tees came out perfect.
The only thing I did differently is I did a little gathering along the front of the neckline, extended the length and did some gathering along the sides. Oh yah, I also made it loose rather than fitted.
So by the time Lala finished her breakfast, watched Yo Gabba Gabba and enjoyed some riffs from Vince Guaraldi, I had the dress done and for her to wear for the rest of the day. *woot-woot*
No cookies today. I just had Lily Moon dance hysterically while I took some shots (pics not drinks... too early).
Well today (Friday) is a special for us... we're going on our annual pumpkin hunt and apple pie gorging in Julian.
