After making Felicity three jumpers which she now refuses to wear, I got nervous about sewing for her. In the last two weeks she's suddenly become extremely picky on what she wants to wear. I can no longer pick out her outfits for her, and picking outfits out for herself usually takes a good deal of time, a good deal of trying on this and that, and a good deal of a mess left over once the perfect outfit is chosen.
I'm working on being patient with her new burst of opinions. Actually, its the mess of clothes all over her room that I'm working on being patient with.
The other day I timidly made her a dress I hoped she'd love.
This dress is very Lis.
A bow in the back....
....a nice full skirt....
....buttons on the bodice.....
....and rick rack on the hem.
She's in love with it.
And so am I.
I have had a vision of this dress in my head since Felicity was a year old. I wanted to make her a vintage print dress with a blue background, red accents, and yellow rickrack. I wanted it to look like a "Kit dress", referring to the American Girl Doll, Kit.
I am thrilled to see my vision come to life.
And in true Felicity form, this dress has been worn for two days straight, even to bed. A slight fight ensued when her Daddy told her she couldn't wear it again today. My promise that I'd wash it so it was fresh for Grammy's party tomorrow was the only way we got it off her without a fit.
