Well, I didn't get too much accomplished during the Friday Night Sew In, but that's not all totally my fault.
I have the 'Sewing Clothes Kids Love' book, and I think it's a wonderful book. If you sew frilly dresses for young girls, apparently the Feliz dress in this book is the holy grail of dresses.
Anyway, back to the FNSI. All started out well on Friday. I decided to trace the Feliz pattern. Not only do I have the book this pattern comes in, I also have the individual pattern too. I decided to trace from the individual pattern because I like the heaver while paper it's printed on, as opposed to the regular old tissue paper that comes with the book. I also used the individual pattern because it's in German. I have other individual patterns from Studio Tantrum, and I thought this would be a good opportunity to brush up on my German. NOT! Not a single word that is on the pattern is in my (rather large) German to English dictionary. WTF! I might have some problems!
Anyway, the pattern is traced and the pieces are cut. Wish me luck, I hear that the first time you make this dress, it's a huge pain.
