Size does matter.

I spent yesterday afternoon cutting out the nightgowns (and watching Gene Simmons Family Jewels - one of my current guilty pleasures). The flannel fabric I bought for these was very wide, 90" I think. So I had purchased 1 metre for each. Or so I thought... When I was pre-washing, I noticed that one piece looked smaller. Then it dawned on me. I had ordered that one online, and since the seller was in the U.S., I had only ordered 1 YARD. Believe me, that 4" made a big difference. I was able to squeeze all the pieces in, but the back yoke on that nightgown will have a seam that shouldn't be there.

I was hoping to make my daughters slippers to match their nighties, but that's not going to happen now...
