Indywriter was kind enough to send me this old sheet she found at a thrift store. It is the exact same print that I had when I was a little girl. She wrote a post entitled "What to do with this fabric" and in it she stated it was a little too large and garish for children's clothes. I agree, but, couldn't help myself! It's a little long, but I don't care, that just means she can wear it longer! This is the first piece of clothing I have -ever- made and I love it. It's that lovely McCall's apron dress pattern. I didn't make the little bloomers, I just put her in some coordinating capris... because I'm lazy like that. Cheesy

Which Mccalls pattern did you use.  I like the back of the dress.  I've made my GD little tops with that style back and she loves them.  Made them last year for her and she is just now able to wear them.  She is small for her age.  Going on two next month and just now getting out of 9 to 12 month clothes.  Hard to make clothes to fit her 19" waist and torso.

I remember that fabric on here before.  LOL!!!

Very cute!  I love the apron back patterns, they look so good on little girls. 

I have a skirt I made from that same sheet, it was my first reconstructed project.  Alas, it no longer fits.  But one day when my dh and I were "antiquing" I found one of the books with these illustrations.  Now I kick myself that I didn't buy it.

Too cute!  I think you can get away with just about any fabric with a model as adorable as that!!
