A First For Everything.

Over the weekend I decided to attempt a tunic top for my 9 year old daughter. I have to admit...I didn't ever think I would be a 'Make My Kids Clothes' kind of crafter. After an ugly experiment with making doll clothes I decided..."Leave the clothes to the professional seamstresses,"

Now I have a couple of years of sewing under my belt. I got brave...pulled up my sleeves and started cutting out the pattern.
I'm in love with the fun Amy Butler fabrics!

I've been holding on to these particular fabrics forever...having a hard time cutting into them. Anyone else do this?

I was going to get a picture first thing this morning...but it got chaotic. Here's an after school picture. Hey...if the shirt can hold up through 3 recesses and school lunch...I call it a success!
