I got the red fabric from Zura, thanks dear and was so totally in LOVE just had to create. It ended up being another dress for shasha inspired from ivey's blog and decided to take the basic A-line pattern, cut wee bit under armhole added inverted pleats in the middle. Sleeves, neck and hem are finished using bias coordinated piping. See the pretty sunflower buttons at the back. I like buttons compared to zips ,not only are they much less of a hassle but prettier too :) My little touch of whimsy, a pretty button on her shoulder. The dress reminded me of the swinging 60's in Austin Powers hence the name!
Made a matching elasticated headband from the same two material.
Anyone interested , RM45 for workmanship with buttons and i'll throw in the headband for FREE!! Contact me for fabric requirement. Shasha is 123cm height and this dress uses 1yard/ 1mtr in total. Length can be varied

And here it is, have completed a matching hat for her to go with the twirly dress. And its reversible too! Notice the yoyo heart with the button? A nice touch I think to match the one on her dress. So need a break right now, aching everywhere! Well, at least I have one very happy little girl :)
Rm45 for the hat and of course you can order it to match the dress! Uses 1/2m of fabric, would look good in designer fabrics don't you think, so couture! Ok bye for now

Hello hello everyone, yes its been 2 months since my last posting! Have been tied up with kids schooling and everyday stuff, sigh! But yes have been stitching too. Introducing my girl Shasha! Here she is, really happy with her Feliz dress. This was an experiment, the pattern seemed so complicated. But it turned out so beautifully. The main fabric is from my stash but I matched the frills from of course my fav place Cottage Patch. Got lots of praises for this one and she's happy twirling around . Am making her a matching hat, nearly done. Already planning another in a green and pink combo, will definitely be pretty, can't wait! Problem is, the boys are now making noise, maybe will make them matching shorts!
Its a full 2 layer dress, princess cut style with elastic at the waist and back so can expand quite a bit.Please email me for details if interested for custom made for your princess. Soft cotton material is best for this dress so she can twirl away!! For a size 120 -130cm height, requires 2.75 metres including the ruffles. Please enquire for other sizes.
Hmm not sure how much to charge for workmanship, aching shoulders adding all those ruffles and ribbons! :)
