This is the first version of the Feliz dress that I've made for my daughter. I have never made clothing before so this was a bit scary, but it didn't have any really complicated bits, just trying to get my head around the pattern terminology :) The underdress is made from a chocolate brown voile so it's very light and cool for summer.
My daughter loves it and insisted on wearing it to preschool this morning. I took a couple of photos before it gets covered in paint and dirt - she's not really a girly girl and usually comes home quite grubby!
I really like the look of this apron style dress. My husband thinks that it looks as though it comes from the Sound of Music, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing :) And I'm also into layering which is why she's got on her jeans as well.
Now for some more of these dresses - I'm going to make her one for a wedding we're going to in November, hopefully that will give me enough time to work out how to sew ruffles...
