Her birthday dress and accessories

We celebrated our daughter's  birthday this week. I am sharing with you the birthday dress and accessories I made for her.

Just have a look on this little princess...

I don't know whether to call this shade as purple or violet, but I love this color. I have used silk cotton and lace material with satin lining for the dress.
Made a small top similar to shrug and a bow to tie at the back.

I did some sequin and beads work in the top.

I made a small bag and hair clip with the remaining  material. She was very crazy to have such a bag. In fact was very happy on her birthday not for chocolates or cake, just for this little bag I made for her.

the hair clip...

Thank you very much for the lovely comments you give me.
They bring a big simle in my face.
Next post is another summer dress...Keep watching!

Sewing for summer

Its only mid march, but sun is very hot, almost it is summer in Chennai.
So  I have a plan to make some cool summer dresses for my daughter.

This is the first one...
a simple frock, with thin shoulder straps, providing more room for air.
I made it little bigger, just for her comfort.

the back...

The details in the yoke...

I have more such cool colors in my stash, so keep watching.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments for the lace skirt

Lace skirt

This lace material was there in my stash for more than six months. I decided to make a half circular skirt. I finished drafting and cutting. But no idea for the edges, I thought of fixing a lace and waiting to buy it. Mean time I was inspired by the scallop edges and made this...

I love the way it turned out...

I got the inspiration for the scallop edges here and she got it from here
