Owl Birthday Dress

I just wanted to share some photos of my new creation. I made this dress for a little girl that my daughter nanny’s for. The pattern I used is by Farbenmix / Studio Tantrum, The Feliz Dress. It has two layers with a pinafore on top and a dress under which I embellished with ruffles. The upper back section has four rows of elastic that is decorative as well as convenient for putting on and taking off. The tie in the back also helps to adjust the dress as she grows.
The owl fabric was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics and the brown check fabric was purchased from Chez Ami in their fabric section.
The dress form that it is on is for a size 4t and the dress is a size 6, so it looks a bit large in the pictures.
