Like Riding a Bicycle

Just in case you thought I forgot how to sew:
I made this dress for the art teacher’s baby months ago. I had not posted a photo because, technically, it was not finished. All it needed was some little snaps on the inside and the bow sewn on the outside. Five minutes. Why did I procrastinate so long? Today was the art teacher’s last day before her maternity leave. Nothing gets me moving like a deadline hanging over my head, the sword of Damocles. This morning, I sewed on the last little bits.
The pattern is Design #9 from the 06/07 issue of Ottobre Design. It is a great pattern for any season. A light cotton fabric would be perfect for summer. It would be cozy for winter in a snuggly fabric,with a long sleeve tee and leggings.
Anyone recognize the fabric? I could never bear to simply throw away a 1/2 yard of fabric. Baby clothes are the perfect use for the remnants of other projects.
