A couple months ago we were back home for my brother-in-law's wedding. We stayed at my parent's house, and one day when I didn't have anything to do, I decided to go through my mom's fabric stash! I found a couple things I like, and my mom let me have them. Not to long after we got back here I decided to use one of the smaller pieces to make Tristen something. I used the Simplicity pattern 2437. 

Ugh...I can't get a pic of the pattern loaded. Oh well! The pattern is for a shirt/tunic. I sewed the short sleeved tunic version for Tristen, and it's a little big, so she could wear more like a dress right now. It gets hot here, and the material is pretty light, so it's perfect! I decided to use the larger girl size, and not the toddler size so it'll fit her longer! Kids grow too fast, and I don't feel like buying new clothes every 2 months!

Steve thinks it's kinda goofy looking, but I think it's cute...even though it looks like Tristen has a big diaper butt in this picture!
