In my attempt to find flannel at JoAnns Fabric store, we ended up on the character material aisle, (its the same one). Nan desperately wanted princess material, so I gave in so I could put back some other ugly material she had asked for. The material was half off, and has that elastic smocking, so it was about the easiest dress in the world to make. All I had to do was hem up the side since the bottom comes hemmed, then add straps. For character prints its actually kind of cute material. She loves it. It ended up costing less than $8, not bad for a dress especially on with Disney Princesses on it.
