I Am Making A Dress

Today I am not going to write about embroidery. This post is about my sewing adventures. I am making a dress for my little one.

This is the pattern I created.

Here are the details of the design. I have used flounce at the hemline of the dress as well as on the neck portion. Also, I have done rolled hem (by hand) for the edges of the flounce.

I first thought of using a store-bought fabric flower for the dress. Later I changed my mind and wished to create a flower on my own. I made two different fabric flowers.





After completing the flowers I realized that I made the first flower too small, so I combined the two flowers into one like this:


This is my progress so far:



I still feel that the flower should have been a little bigger. I am thinking of making a bigger flower to replace this.

Do you want me to post a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these fabric flowers and how to sew rolled hem by hand? Please feel free to comment if you are interested. I will post the tutorials.
