I am a terribly slack blogger and here is the proof. I made this dress for Lottie to wear on Christmas day, so it was finished almost 5 months ago! My excuse is that I forgot to take photos on the day, the ones the rest of the family took were crappy, and then after washing it, the thought of ironing all those ruffles seemed too huge a task to get through with my sanity in tact.
So here it is. Finally. Better late than never right?
I used the Studio Tantrum Feliz pattern. These patterns seem to run short and wide which is not ideal for Lottie who is tall and thin. I really should have made the size smaller. Even on this one I added a ruffle to the bottom to get some extra length. I probably would make this pattern again but minus the ruffles. Not so much because they were a pain to sew but as I mentioned they make ironing a mammoth task that I just dont want to face. The instructions on Studio Tantrum patterns are pretty minimal. So I used the fabulous sew-a-long instructions over at Trillium Design to help me through. I wouldn't say the pattern is hard, just fiddly. And the pics over at Trillium certainly made it all a lot easier.
