Love is priceless, special, forever ...
This year has been the first valentine's day, wherein i am away from two of my loved ones, my mom & sis and the one where i couldn't send them personalized gifts handmade by me...
2 days back my uncle passed away and i just came back after attending is funeral. I know it is not exactly quite the message i can give on a valentine's day wish post, but death often brings with it the zest for life, the realization that life indeed is short , so we should try to make it as sweet as possible, trying to forgot all bitterness that is there among us... easier said than done, but it indeed has to be done, for the love of life, if not for everything else ... may his soul rest in peace, my heart goes out to my aunt and cousin sister, it is quite tough on them.. may god be with them and give them courage and strength to recoup.
Heart felt Happy Valentine's wishes to my dear readers and Yes, please do not forget to wish your loved ones, not just this day but every day ... I Love You is just that magical word which soothes and heals any pain and warms the soul.
This was the outfit made for Adithi over the weekend, did a photo shoot immediately (quite rare as either the model or the photographer (me) is not in the mood for photoshoot and it takes quite long usually, 2 more outfits are still waiting for their photoshoot!), Thank God i made this early, otherwise this year it would have been without handmade dress for my darling daughter. She loves the outfit and shared one important feedback with me, that she likes "Sleeveless"dresses and does not enjoy wearing the ones with sleeves, point noted. She loves pockets as well, but somehow couldn't include one in this dress. My fav color pallet for the past month has been black and white, since i can't do black, decided to do white for Valentine's . The heart cut out back neckline has been such a rage this season, the patterns for the dresses with heart shaped back are selling like hot cakes, but it is such an easy pattern to self draft, so decided to have the hearty neckline , the Chinese knot button closure adds extra charm to the back
The fabric belt has heart border on both edges.
The skirt portion of the dress is more than 4 times her waist round in the width of fabric used and hence is quite twirly for a non-circle skirt
The same outfit is available for made to order on my etsy shop
