Fabric: Navy blue matte jersey.

I had no problems making this outfit, it came out looking just like the pattern.This is something I would make again.

I have a question.Have you ever went to a store and the people in the store didn't want to help you?I went to Walmart to take my son to get some school supplies.Whenever I go to Walmart I always go see if they have any nice fabric on their clearance rack.So while I was looking, the sales lady was on the other side of the fabric rack.I found the fabric I used to make this outfit on the rack and was so happy I knew what I was going to make with it.So I go to the cutting table and wait for the sales lady, she acted like she didn't see me there.So I went to get her,I was a little upset,but I didn't show it.My son whispered in my ear Mama she act like she don't want to help you.I said maybe she had a bad day.Now the fabric was a 1.00 a yard.I told her I want 5 yards of the navy fabric and two yards of the other fabric.She started flinging my fabric off the board and she folded it any kind of way.I didn't say thing I just took my fabric and receipt and went to pay for my things.Long story somewhat short I got home and she made a mistake and charge me 2.00 for all that fabric!!:) :) :) :)That was a great day!!!!SmileyCentral.com

Well thats it for me!!Happy crafting!!

I love the outfit! Looks great together. I've had the same type of experience - I don't understand why people can't just be nice! Great that it turned in your favor in the end.

Gold - what a cute outfit! It looks fantastic on you. Sounds like the clerk was having a very bad day and it was Wal-Marts that she was made at and not you...$2 for 5 yards of fabric...yeah that was a Wal-Marts moment!

Chic, oh so chic. Your store incident has happened to me many times. I can't understand why people choose jobs that aren't right for them. The good thing is; you had a happy ending.
