Here is the second dress of the Dressapalooza series.
I call it the Silk-O-Fun dress.
It is actually a variant of traditional Indian garb - "Pattu Pavada" which looks like this below.
I was sure my daughter wouldn't be able to successfully pull off the traditional look because:
a) She is 3 years old and has a protruding tummy (so typical of very young girls) which causes either a slipping skirt or a rolled up shirt with running around
b) Sewing a tailored top like the above means you wont be able to use it more than 6 months, especially with very young girl
c) Too lazy to do the top and skirt separately
So I came up with this idea of making a classic gathered dress variation of Indian Pattu Pavadi.
But the coolest part is, I have never ever seen this variation, ever! So if you see one, please let me know. But I think I nailed it :-) Seems like I did something on this kind of silky fabric that nobody tried before. Man, I feel like I need to copyright this thing. Something like this? :-)
Oh, well. Go ahead, make it.
After all imitation is the biggest form of flattery. So if you make it, please ...please send a link so I can just, you know, look at your version and feel good. :-)
Anyhow BN rocked in it. Unfortunately I don't have a decent picture of her in it.
Alrighty. Recently I have something in my mind, like quilts!!
