Pattern DescriptionThe Felicity Dress & Top by Bella Sunshine Designs.

“The Felicity Dress is the perfect dress for warmer weather. The thin shoulder straps are dainty and allow your little one to soak up the sun’s rays. The pattern comes with options for either an elastic or shirred back making fitting a breeze. The option for a tucked or gathered front skirt makes this an excellent sew for beginner and intermediate seamstresses alike. The optional ruffle bottom gives a little bit of extra frill when wanted. The entire bodice and skirt is fully lined leaving no exposed seams to irritate sensitive skin. Plus, this pattern comes with options for both a top length as well as a dress length designed to hit right above the knee.” – cited from BSD website

Pattern Sizing: 6 Months to Girls 12 –  I choose to do the elastic back with a ruffled bottom. I did a size 12 months according to Abbie’s chest measurement and lengthen the skirt to a  size 3.

What did you particularly like about the pattern? The Felicity Dress is perfect for summer and the triple digit weather we’ve been experience in California lately. I love that it’s a very quick sew and that the dress is fully lined, the back gathers are super cute too! Next time I think I’ll try my hand at shirring.
