Tablecloth turned Cinco de Mayo

Once upon a time (last summer) I bought a red flowered tablecloth meant to use for the fabric. It sat and sat, alone and unused in my fabric stash. That was until I decided to try out a pattern I had brewing in my head. I sketched it out to make be sure of what it would look like. Then I cut out the body pieces. I had to make a muslin trial sleeve to make sure it would work, and it did, so I cut it out of the real fabric. I few rows of elastic smocking later and we have this shirt.
(doesn't it look a lot like the sketch above)
I decided to call it my Cinco de Mayo shirt, because to me it looks a little festive! K was asleep when I made it, but luckily when she tried it on it fit perfect!
