Quick Fire Party Dress !

There is a Birthday Day of 1 year old Cutie Trishanth in our colony. My DD is excited about having a fun at the party. I realised that i had not sewn any new outfit for her recently and this was just the right 'excuse' to indulge!

This piece of fabric has been lying around with me for the past 2 years! This is leftover fabric from the gown i had stitched for Adithi  as part of Navarathri Celebrations of 2009

5 Easy steps were all it took to create this Party Dress !

  1. Cut it into the proper rectangle/square by trimming of even edges
  2. Stitched the seam leaving about 3 inches open at the bottom to function as vent for ease of movement.
  3. Folded up at top to make elastic casing (the bottom portion is zig zag trimmed already)
  4. Added 2 noodle straps to hold her in modesty!
  5. To add a bit of 'zing' to the outfit attached the trim .

Party Dress is Ready to Rock and so is she  !!!


Hot new party dress is ready in a jiffy. I had a tough time convincing her to take off the dress as she insisted she wears it today itself and goes out to play! Somehow managed to convince her saying party is just another day away! Finally she agreed to it as we wanted to flaunt it at the party!

Matching Hair Clip to boot!
