Here's another outfit I recently made for my dd. When I purchased the butterfly fabric I was planning the capri outfit. She spotted the fabric, and had very different ideas. She declared it a shirt. I couldn't let her down so, I made the apron top. The capri set is from a pattern I can look the number up if anyone's interested. The apron top is based on a tutorial that I downloaded from

I'm still trying to get the hang of posting pictures, I hope they work.

Thanks for looking!!

Very nice! My daughter loves butterfly fabric, so I understand how your daughter took ownership right away, lol. Is the fabric a cotton or a stretch?

It's a cotton. The fabric is fairly simple but the pictures don't do it justice.
