ACU Dress

I've resisted making this dress for a while. But the overwhelming popularity of camouflage clothing for children won out. So I decided to go as authentic as possible. My dreams of having a full range of camouflage dresses to match each service branch are far from met, but for now the Army Camouflage dress is now a reality.

The first group of these dresses will be done in 100% twill ACU fabric. I hope to acquire some 50% cotton/ 50% nylon ACU fabric later. However, that won't be for a while.

If anyone knows of a source for authentic fabrics for the Air Force and Marines, let me know. And I really don't know what pattern the Navy uses, but I've never had anyone express interest in a Navy camouflage dress.
