I made this dress for QQ to wear for my brother's wedding dinner recently. Managed to finish the dress the night before the wedding :-D
I love this fabric that I had in my stash. This is the same fabric that I used to make this red cheongsam :-). It is 100% cotton and feels very rich to the touch. Very soft and comfortable too. I have only a meter left, and desperately looking everywhere to stock up more of this good quality same shade of red fabric!
The bodice of the dress is gathered at the neckline and sleeves, creating princess sleeves. A black band with white polkadots adorns the waist, and it billows to a puffy skirt below. I added a tutu beneath her skirt, which made the skirt even puffier :-D. She seriously looked so cute in it :-D.
It's a shame that I can't get a decent picture of her in it... she's either seated and we can't see her puffed up skirt or she's wearing a cardigan over her dress. Here's one not so clear picture of her standing with Gong gong, Popo and HQ. Can you see that everyone is not looking at the camera? For now, I'll just look at this cute little face of hers and be really contented :-).
