Oh, dear...I didn't sew along! In fact, I am more a wanna be than a doer right now. But I did find some fabrics in the stash that might be really cute (and made my daughter trace out the pattern!) so I am STILL going to make the Feliz. The instructions are so clear, I know they will help!

I am chugging along slowly on my Feliz but I will need to step it up to have it ready for this Saturday for my 4yr old dgd. Her sister is turning 1 and that is the day of the party. I will make something for her from the same fabric, Dick and Jane, three from the set, plus several dot fabric extras. I want to make the hem of the Feliz with a ruffle. I will have rows of ruffles on the back. Where do I need to place the first row of back ruffles? Is there a space between the hem ruffle and the back ruffle or do they overlap? Susan VH

I am ready (Ithink) to post my dress, but not sure where I am supposed to put it. Diane

I went back and reread the original and found the Gallery. I just did not think to look at the top bar. DUH!!

Susan, I started with the bottom ruffle on the back with a measurement of 3 inches. Then above that, I like to just barely cover the top part of the ruffle below--to hide the stitching...

I don't count the ruffle around the hem as the bottom ruffle on the back...Good luck. I spent today working on two dresses--ha-ha, do you know it takes longer to remove ruffles from the side panels...than the whole process of preparing three ruffles and sewing two on...(There are no ruffles called for on the side panels) Not a good step forward today!

My Dick and Jane Feliz is finished ! ! ! I even bought a series of Dick and Jane books in a little suitcase to give to dgd along with the dress. I would love to post pics but I have never done this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Susan VH

Hmmmmm....I'm still trying to refrain from putting ruffles on side panels and having to remove them....and the ruffle went on so very nicely...looked great in fact! :rotflo: :rotflo: :ranting:

My Feliz photos are under "My Dick and Jane Feliz" Could someone smarter than me post them in the Feliz folder? Thanks Susan VH

After looking at Susan's Feliz in the Gallery, I decided that must be the case!!! LOL

Well I'm sure getting educated on using my new serger on this Feliz dress. I made all my ruffles on it yesterday and edged the facings. (YES I know I'm lagging so far behind everyone else who finished but I haven't given up and I refer to this sew along frequently!). I've got the facings put on the front of the dress and a little bit of embellishment - I think of Jerry every time I use Ric Rac and I've put JUMBO RED Ric Rac on this dress. :cheer:

I'll be posting pictures when I've finished. It's fun so far. Unless I get into a snarl I'll be making it again.

Thanks Linda for the great pictures - they're very handy!

My Feliz is in the gallery. Finally! It just took a back seat for a couple of weeks.
