These were a first for me. The first time I've sewn the oliver+s Fairy Tale Dress. I don't know why I never purchased this pattern. It really is the perfect special event dress and I will definitely be sewing more of these. The fabric is a cute, metallic Michael Miller print from fabric.com. Miss L's dress is a size 6 and Miss B's is a size 5. They requested no sleeves, although I really wanted to try the tulip sleeve. Maybe next time.
These dresses are so sweet and classic. I love how they turned out. Of course I added two layers of pink tulle. What little girl doesn't like pink tulle?
I sewed these up assembly line style and they took about a week to complete. It's not a difficult pattern, it just requires quite a few steps. They are fully lined with a thin broadcloth that makes the inside look very finished and professional.
Bella's dress required a little more effort because I had to match the plaid pattern. But, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Not perfect, but pretty good. I was able to showcase my elite invisible zipper skills, as well. I'm joking, but for some reason I like to put in invisible zippers and seem to do a pretty good job. I guess I have my machine to thank for that. Thank you, Baby Lock Grace. :)
Sunshine feels good on those little toes!
I hope you are enjoying your spring/almost summer as much as we are!
