Birthday Brights Feliz dress done!

Here is Mady's Feliz dress all finished! It took a while to get done, partly because I have been kind of busy and haven't had a lot of time to sew, and partly because I was sort of psyching out the pattern and thinking a lot about how to put it together since the instructions were a little funky. It was a fun adventure, though! I purchased a ruffler foot for my machine..... I love this thing! :)
The bottom ruffle of this dress was made on the fullest setting with the ruffler foot. On the fullest setting it packs 5 inches of material into one inch of gathers. LOL, that means that there is a little over 36 feet of ruffle in the red ruffle at the bottom of the dress! Longer than my house is wide! :) All perfectly gathered in about 20 minutes, gotta love that! All in all, there are probably about 6 yards of fabric in this dress. I decided I might as well pull out all the stops on this one since I got such a good deal on the red fabric. I still have a couple of yards left, too. Now, I just hope she likes it. LOL
