For those of you who have seen the movie and were equally smitten with Felicity Fox, here is my version of her dress. I used a vintage pattern (Simplicity 7242) , not an exact replica, but close enough for me. I had to hand paint all those apples as I could not find the fabric, which probably doesn’t even exist. I still need to add the button on the collar too. I just couldn’t wait to share with you. This dress makes me very happy. This is why I sew!
Organic cotton. Hand painted apples.
