Do not worry, it is an FO today and it is a Tiered frock.
I have attempted few frocks for my daughter before, though not perfect as a store bought one, it was well appreciated!! and worn more than a few times 🙂
So I bought this polka dot print cloth early this year. I made this crochet collar few months back and now finally managed to sew it into a dress.
I bought the fabric from RC Puram trip, I think it was Rs 100/m and I bought only one meter. The cloth is fine cotton and did not shrink much( tested already :-)).
So I combed the various free patterns frocks/ skirt for little girl and got so much inspiration from everywhere so for a while I was confused on which pattern to follow.
I did not follow one single pattern though I would be much better with that, these are the sewing tutorials I went thru and they are very helpful.
Though I google and google again for free patterns, read them back n forth ( should it be from top to bottom?) several times, I always sew as I understand from the patterns.
Ok, to tell the truth, I see the patterns , understand the basic structure and then try to sew them on weekends. Not sewing by looking at the pattern for every step. So naturally I miss all the details of neat finishing.
Not that it matters in my FOs. Still I would like to do better next time.
Till then, Here is the tiered frock.
Back side with Zip and then hook too.
Crochet Neck Lace pattern is from here.
By the way, why tired? I sewed the top first with lining. Then I tried to visualize what to do with the bottom and it took my quite a while to bring it to closure, it was definitely not a one day job for me. To be Honest, it took me more than a month, with few weeks of shelving in between.
But All iz well as of now, (that means till I actually venture to make another frock)
