4th of July shirt and Hello Kitty Pillowcase dress

I had sewn the hubby's shirt in my Sewing 101 class the previous Summer 2009 at the local community college and the Hello Kitty dress for my daughter just days before we headed out to our 4th of July events

4th of July Apron - Amy Butler Pattern

The pattern and directions were from Amy Butler's In Stitches: More Than 25 Simple and Stylish Sewing Projects. I got the fabric from Joanns and this is actually a Joann's Exclusive Print.  So rusty in my sewing and a perfectionist at the same time, this took me 3 days to complete.  Once it was done, I was very happy with it.  I wore it out on Independence day as if it was a skirt.  Got lots of looks and smiles.  No I was not only wearing the apron.  I had it over a pair of Levis (so American, right?) and a plain white shirt.  If I were to sew another one, I would make it shorter as it was just a bit too long for me as I am only 5' 4".  If you are taller than that, then the length would be perfect for you.
