I had so much fun making this dress, everything about it is just my style: bright, fanciful and colorful! Thankfully Miss Loofie LOVES this style as well. This is the second Feliz dress that I made for my Farbenmix challenge (the first dress is here)
The overdress is made with nice sturdy denim. This makes a great base for kid’s clothes, as it is easy to wash and is very hard wearing; I wait for the sales and buy in bulk. I have embellished the over dress with lovely ribbons, pom-poms, rickrack and a beautiful machine embroidery by Urban Threads. The bottom hem is finished with some red lace.
The under-dress is made with a gorgeous Lisette patterned cotton (poplin) from Spotlight, the bottom hem is finished with a rainbow ruffle. The back of the dress is, well a rainbow of ruffles! I finished the bottom of the ruffles with a rolled hem on my overlocker (serger). I really love the way the black rolled hems on the ruffles turned out; it reminds me of Spanish Flamenco dresses.
I would like to say thank you for reading along and for all the lovely comments in my previous post; I am still very new at this blogging thing and it really means a lot to me to hear from you all.
