Bling 'o' Balloon Destiny Frock !

Why have I named this outfit 'Bling Balloon Destiny Frock' ???

Bling = For the Bling in the bodice fabric (the fabric gave me TOUGH time as i had to sew it again and again to get the stitch on the seams!!!; Changed needles - type, size, nothing worked, wonder what to do with about 3/4 yard of fabric still lying around!!!! My sis had got this fabric about a year ago!!!)

Balloon = For the Balloon skirt (this was simple wasn't it)

Destiny = Now this has a reason behind it, i started sewing this dress as gift for my DD's friend's b'day. After finishing the bodice i realised it is not quite right to gift this bodice fabric which is quite finicky and the seams aren't as professional as i normally sew; so decided to retain it for my DD and decided to make a new one for b'day girl . Hope to sew it just in time to be ready for 2moro (1st June). Fingers crossed.

So my DD was destined to get this frock ! She is one lucky girl isn't she? Will post action pictures 2moro at the B'day Blast!

Look At End of Post for More Action Shots !!! (she was in the mood to pose today!!!!)

Action Shots are here !!!!
