Fairy Princess dress by Made by Runi

It has been quiet on my blog the last couple of weeks. It was not that I have not been sewing, actually I sewed a lot before we went on holiday. I wanted to finish certain pieces before we went on holiday. So most of my spare time was spent on sewing and not so much on blogging. Then we went on holidays for two weeks. Now I have to get back into my sewing mojo. I still have several pieces I have not blogged about, the first one is the Fairy Princess Dress by Made by Runi.
I sewed the Fairy Princess Dress during our sewing weekend. I bought the fabric at the stoffenstraat, on our way to the sewing weekend. I just love the sea animals and the print. But I did not have the best combination of fabric, but luckily she had the perfect match in her stash. That is always the best part about going on a sewing weekend. If you are stuck because you are short on something or you cannot find a good combination in your own stash (which seems impossible with sooooo many pieces of fabric, but still it happens), there is always somebody who can help you out. Either with advice or sometimes a piece of fabric.
After the dress was finished I wonder whether it is too pyjama like. I still don't know what I think about it. What do you think? So for now I am steering away from light blue colours. 
I bought the pattern of the Fairy Princess dress because I love the high low effect of the dress and expected that my girl would love that as well. At first she wasn't that convinced about the dress. She wants her dresses to be as long as possible, and she finds it a pity that the outer skirt is low on the front, she would have preferred it to be long. After wearing it became one of her favourite dresses at the moment. Mission completed!
The dress comes in sizes 12M to 14Y (80-164 european sizes). I used the add on for the fairy princess for the sleeves. There is also a fairy hood that you can add to the dress. For the seam I used my coverlock and used the decorative stitch for both skirts, I love the result. I am still so happy with my coverlock.
