my Kathy dress pattern from Cal Patch's amazing Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified and I like it even more than take 1, which is saying something! The first thing I did before making this dress was re-draft the shoulder / armhole area. I ended up narrowing the shoulder significantly so that now it fits really well and isn't sagging or baggy. I also re-drafted the armhole to be less deep. The seam here is still a little wonky and could use some more work, but it's a definite improvement!

The second bit is a little of an after thought. I'd been meaning to make these removable bands to secure baby quilts for the show that killed my mojo but ran out of time. Now: done! It's a very simple little design, but one that I hope is helpful for parents trying to juggle a million and one baby supplies.
