A Birthday Dress for a Birthday girl :)



The pattern is "Feliz" by Farbenmix.

The fabric for the overdress and the ruffles is from the Cicely Mary barker Flower Fairy line.
The pinky-purple fabric for the underdress was an organic cotton flat sheet I had waiting for a project to show itself :)

I'm in the middle of a love affair with bias tape. Head over heals actually ( no I don't love bias tape quite so much as I do my husband - he's sitting right here next to me as I type ;) ) I learned how to make my own bias tape for this project so that I could use the fabric from the ruffles.

I can't wait to give it to her! I promise there will be pictures coming :)

I have to send my computer in for repairs - there's a disk stuck :( I'm not sure how long I'll disappear for....... but I'll be back :)


  1. WOW! The dress is absolutely beautiful! I love the fabric too. She is going to be so thrilled!

  2. Wow! Looks fantastic. I am sure she will adore it. Peggy

  3. That is such a lovely dress, even my husband said it was really beautiful. I did not know that you could get the flower fairies in fabric before. I used to love Cicely Mary Barker books when I was a child - alas many moons ago. Looking forward to seeing big Miss A wearing it. (Andrew's aunt in the UK)
