Cotton Candy Skirt !!!

Cotton Candy known as 'Panjumittaai' in Tamil is the word that came to my mind after finishing this poofy pettiskirt (albeit with just 2 layers as i had only 3 metres of net / tulle fabric - 2 of pale pink and 1 of bright pink)

This is my gift to my daughter for V-Day, albeit bit late, but it is better late than never isn't it. I started making this on VDay (Monday) and ended up finishing it only by Friday, my DD has still not fully recovered from an upset stomach and did not go to school since wednesday. I hope she gets well soon, it hurts to see her suffering, acidity at this age is just horrible, why because she started going to school full day for the past 10 days (before she started taking leave) and had to eat lunch on her own, which she doesn't like doing, and skipped, also feels stressed being at school for the whole day, the transition isn't over yet, anyone who knows pranic healing, please spend few valuable minutes of your time on my DD and wish her to get well soon, even if you aren't skilled healer, please do pray for her as all the good wishes will surely help her get back to normalcy.

Here i am typing this early in morning, i guess 5:30 AM now, will go back and hit snooze button, i squeezed in time to post before she gets up. Will be back to normal sewing days once she is fit and fine!

Next up i have planned to do Katori Blouse Sewing tutorial, hope you gals have checked 'Katori Pattern Drafting Tute' posted earlier
