My daughter's feliz dress is finished! Phew. It took me about two full days of non stop sewing to finish but it was so worth it. I am pleased with how it turned out. I made faux piping that I added to the seams of the overdress and the along the edges of the ruffles on the underdress. The instructions were a bit sparse so I would not recommend the pattern for an absolute beginner but, with the online tutorial offered by Studio Tantrum and Trillium's sew along, pretty much anybody that has done at least a little bit of sewing could complete the dress with no problem. Oh and I did have a little more help. I bought the pattern from Corie at banberryplace.com. We found that we lived about 5 minutes away from each other. Talk about a small world!! She had a sewing get together at her house, so she was able to give me her tips from the experience she had with the pattern. I heard about a third of what she said as she had us working in the area where she keeps her shop. SERIOUSLY, how was I suppose to concentrate??? Her fabric is so beautiful, all that europeon yumminess! . High quaility and unique. Check her out at www.banberryplace.com. Oh and for the fabric I used, I bought it from www.mariemadelinestudios.com. One of my favorite shops for domestic fabrics. Awesome customer service, super sweet ladies.
14For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole familya]">[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
