A New Dress


Close Up of New Dress, originally uploaded by JLP2000.
I finally finished this green dress! My mother gave me the fabric when I admired the back of a quilted table runner she'd made. I thought it would be perfect for Felicity with her green eyes, but after modeling for photos, Felicity gave it to M. for her Elizabeth. Green is M's favorite color and all of Felicity's clothes are pink and blue. I bought eBayer AllTimeFashion's CD of American Girl patterns and this is the first dress I've made using them. I had to do some "unsewing" do to silly mistakes, but I think it turned out pretty good for a first run with a new pattern.
I also made Felicity a coral necklace since that is what she wears in the book and is the original necklace in her accessories collection.
