I've finally -almost- finished this Feliz dress. All I need to do is a white ruffle along the bottom hem of the underdress - I would have done it tonight but I've ran out of white cotton. Anyway, I couldn't wait to share the photos so here it is! Tell me what you think :)
Also, in a previous post you'll see that I also made a matching headscarf :)
I decided it was a shame that Jasmine can't wear her dress as we're going out to a friends farewell tonight, so on the advice of the lovely lady at the local sewing shop, I sewed up some ties to draw the shoulders in and I topstitched the bottom white ruffle.. and I'm stoked with it :) I think the only other thing I would have done to change this dress is possibly a white flower applique on the front of the apron chest. Anyway, here's a pic of my daughter modeling it :)
(Yes, she's eating a toothbrush, she loves to brush her teeth and wouldn't let it go!)
So the partner that I sewed for was twinklemoon's little blue fish :) Check out her blog to see what I made!
I can't wait for our next swap!
Here's some of my pics, though seriously check the link above for cute action pics!
This is how I wrapped it up, including my little card (It was folded. Don't ya love the dragonfly? It's so cute! - sorry about the photo being sideways though.)
This is the scoodie (scarf + hoodie) it looks great on (again. check twinklemoons blog! her son makes a great lil model!) Though I just made up the pattern as I went (I'd made one previously for Jasmine, so I guess I'd done it before.. just in a larger size this time). I made cute little bear ears too this time :)
This is the lion design that my boyfriend made up for me, I just had to print it on my special paper and iron it onto the shirt. I was a bit disappointed that the transparent section was tinted instead of clear, but ah well.
These are the overalls I made. It had so many things to sew! like 18 pieces to cut out and put together, plus all the button holes and top-stitching. I only used a single needle, but next time I'm definitely going to try a twin-needle and save half the time.
Here's a bit of a closeup of the fabric and buttons on the overalls:
