Well, I'm a bit of a bird nut. So when I saw this fabric with flickers on it the only question in my mind was how much to buy. And since I'm a dolt at figuring out patterns, I made dd a dress using the singlet shopping bag tute. It worked pretty well, but it hangs a bit strange and it's a little tight in the bodice. I may try to rework it. So, here is the second dress for my little one that is not a recon! (I guess it is sort of a recon since the lining is an thrifted bedsheet!  Smiley  )



And with a real live toddler:


Please excuse the junk in the background! Getting a picture of a toddler on the move requires one to be less picky about backgrounds!

Comments are welcome!
Also, if any of you have ever seen any other woodpecker/ flicker/ sapsucker fabrics, please let me know!!

Cute!  Great idea to use the shopping bag tote at the basis for a dress.  The fabric is wonderful - who makes it?

It's The State Birds- #225 by Susan Ellis for Northcott, and thanks for the kind words.

It's beautiful but not as cute as your little one!
