First project of 2011... Feliz

My baby will be 4 years old next month. I needed to make a special occasion dress for her. She picked the fabrics.
In the coming weeks I have several cakes to make, including, but not only, her birthday I needed to get started!
As always - Feliz is an amazing dress! (I traced if from Sewing Clothes Kids Love...)
All I did was make the dress a bit longer, as Feliz tends to run short... and I left no seam alloance, as my little girl is pretty tiny.
A tip - if anyone wishes to get started on Feliz, but is intimidated... (I know I was..) use this excelent guide by Trillium, right here!!!

I will put on some photos of my girl modeling the dress pretty soon...

What's next...
The first item is a chef's hat and apron set for both my girls. They both asked for it, and it is part of the birthday gift for my little one.
When this will be done, and after 5-6 decorated cakes I need to make, I'll be back with sewing-for-my-self mode...
wait for me :-)


  1. Very cute! I really need to get this book. I've heard such good things about it.

  2. Lovely! I love posts that start "I needed to make..." and my favourite special dress pattern is definitely the Feliz. Yours is gorgeous - do you have a problem with the straps by the way? I can hardly ever get mine right first time.
