Was this supposed to take an entire evening?

My friend Anu is having a baby girl. I thought I'd make a whole bunch of baby things. So I started with the shirt D from McCall M4280.

And here it is...

I bought the fabric from JoAnn's remnant bin, figuring I'd someday have a use for it. And here it is...

I'd like to think I'd be faster making it the second time around, but I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm a slow sewer. Plus, despite the many zillions of sewing patterns I own, sewing clothes baffles me. I'm convinced the instructions are written expressly for the purpose of getting me to a sewing class, moaning pitifully for help.

(Yes, it needs snaps. I'm off to buy a snap thingamajing at JoAnn's tomorrow.)
