I started making this dress three months ago. I had to give it a rest because I was getting frustrated with it to the point that I was ready to shred it to pieces – lol! Last week though, after finishing the Dortje Pants, I decided it was time to finish it. And I’m glad I did because Rinoa said it’s her favorite so far.
The Feliz Dress is a two-layer dress – a full-skirted underdress topped with a shorter, pinafore-style overdress that’s open in the back. Rinoa absolutely loves the back and wishes she can wear the dress with the back as the front. I was going to add trims to the dress but got kinda lazy, so I’m saving the trims for a future attempt at another Feliz Dress.
Feliz is a perfect summer dress but once it starts getting cold, it can be layered with a long sleeve shirt and leggings. That’s what I call versatile! :)
Wow you are talented!!!!! This is a gorgeous dress!
The dress is beautiful, made more beautiful by the super model Rinoa. Good job sweetheart! How about one for Mica?
What a cooperative and cute model you’ve got!
I love the two fabrics of that dress.
Mom use to make me dresses. All I wore was dresses until I was in 4th grade. I hated pants. Anyway, I still remember those dresses Mom made…
Rinoa loves the camera. And isn’t it more memorable to wear handmade dresses? I used to love dresses as well. :)
hopefully you have enough of the groovy brown dots for the front of the next dress you make? Looks beautiful.
I am planning one of these soon.
