Winter's Coming

Over the weekend I altered some clothing for a neighbor and while I was at it some pink flannel started haunting me to make pj's for DD.  Oh alright, it had been haunting me since before the alterations, but today I sat down with what I wanted to do and made them.  What do you think?  It's nice and straight in reality.  The sleeves took more of the pink snow flake fabric than I'd thought they would so the skirt isn't as full quite as I thought it would be so I ran a nice big slit up the back just in case.  I would never do that if we lived up in the frozen North, but we don't and most years we only have a handful of nights where it  dips below  freezing.  As you can see it has a square peasant style neckline which looks so cute on I don't know why anyone fusses over curved necklines.  The flannel is wonderful to touch and I don't say that about all flannel.  The bodice lining is a silky stretch blend.  Now you know one of two things will happen.  Either DD will love it or she will fuss at me about size.  Really?  She's 6 anything that doesn't fit now will fit soon.

Did you know it's nearly October?  The year Autumn has been ringing in loudly for me and I'm looking forward to days fresh and delightful smells coming from my oven and going without the air conditioner!
