In the photo above, you can see me (photo right), Tim, and my best friend from college. It was my first (unofficial) date with Tim. We went to see Dances with Wolves but it was sold out so we returned to our dorm rooms and watched Young Guns II.
C has his body; especially, his legs (they are the same shape - it is kind of weird).
But she has my face - sometimes more than others.
Like her Dad she grows up way more than she grows wide (at least he used to be that way). So when I made her a robe, I borrowed a Size 8 pattern from my Mom and adjusted the length, arm length, and made the armhole just a bit deeper for my size 12 daughter and it works just fine.
I finally tried something I've meant to do for a long time. Rather than cutting the tissue paper pattern. I traced the pattern onto freezer paper. Then I ironed the freezer paper to the fabric and cut it out. Then I removed the freezer paper. According to The Train to Crazy, where I found the idea, you can reuse the freezer paper pattern many, many times. It is slick and I was able to cut the pieces out much more neatly. I think I will be doing this frequently with patterns I anticipate re-using.

- Fabric (fleece from some curtains that used to hang in K's room - I thought fleece would work to block the light better)
