Remember last year when I made TRex a birthday dress? She (rightly) thought that this should be a tradition, and I can't say that I disagree with her.  Recently she told me that she wanted her birthday dress this year to have stars on it; later she amended that request to stars, diamonds, and triangles.  I asked her which one of those was most important if I couldn't find fabric that had all three and she said that diamonds were most important.  Today as I was browsing the internets I found the fabric pictured over there to the right and nabbed 4 yards of it just to be sure.  I haven't quite settled on a pattern for it yet, but I'm leaning towards either this one (actually a mashup of those two garments... taking the longer sleeves from the shirt and putting them on the dress, using a dark pink trim and possibly also for the placket) or this one.  The latter is more little-girl-ish, I think, and cutesy, which is not appealing to me as much.  Is it possible for a five-year-old to be sophisticated?  Because the first one is much more sophisticated.

I will also be making her a ruffled skirt in two very loud pink fabrics (one of which you have seen if you've seen the pictures of her bedroom curtains - just call her Miss Scarlet) for her first day of kindergarten.  The other is in the same color family only it's flowered.  The garment will be just her style - out of control loud & bright.  I may have to physically restrain her from wearing a THIRD pattern with it.

I also have in my sewing room fabric to make a kimono top for Cora, who is the best three-week-old niece a girl could ask for.

That oughta keep me busy for a while, right?  And of course I have Caleb's hosen to make as well...
