Well I finished the Feliz dress in the last post and it came up really well, but umm... well... I forgot to take a photo of it before I handed it over to its new owner!
It was for a friend of mine so I am sure I will get one soon that I can share with you.
I will say again - ruffler foot!! Get one!!
The hem frill is 4 metres of fabric gathered to 2 metres and it WAS A BREEZE!
So on to pants for the brother of the little girl who got the dress.
His mum had selected this cute "bears at the carnival" fabric and a pattern from Ottobre 1/2008 - the Ringo pants (design 23).
These have lovely detail at the top including little faux pocket flaps and a side zip. They were meant to have velcro on the waistband tab but I substituted a snap for this - because I can!
The waistband, while not perfectly aligned, is more even that it appears to be in this pic - not sure what happened there!
He's a little guy so a slim-fit pant fits better on him, which is what these are.
The little recipient was not as happy with these as his sister (and Mum) were with the dress.
I also have dinosaur fabric to make him another pair of pants and given his only comment when I asked him to try these ones on to get the hems right was "but they're not dinosaurs!", I think he will love the next pants more!
