Cute looking Indian Style Skirt and Blouse pattern design for kids: with pictures

Updated on February 11, 2014

Dress from remaining clothes

Here goes my latest experiment. I had stitched a cute looking skirt and blouse for my kid, who is 2.5yrs old. There was some meters of cloth remaining, once I did my churidar. So I just thought, how I could work on that to make a dress for my sweetie. Just for fun... I haven't learned stitching and cutting from and technical person and hence this may contain issues. Anyway, I found this one really interesting and hope this might light up some ideas for you.

Do check my hub on how to stitch a churidar with step by step Instruction

Preparing the clothes

I had two variety of clothes, two shades of green. Firstly I needed a cute looking skirt with more and more pleats. I had used darker shade for the skirt. I had cut a long belt piece for the skirt (picture 2(2)) and had got a long piece for the skirt (picture 2). I need to make pleats for the bottom portion of the skirt and hence I have some pieces of lighter shade (picture 2(3)). at first the darker shade cloth was joined and the pleates were stitched to the belt portion and the same was stitched properly. Later the lighter shade was pleated and stitched towards the bottom of the skirt (picture 26,27) and the skirt was joined. A thread was made out of the remaining clothes and was taken outside through the belt of the skirt and thus the skirt could be tied properly to the body (picture 30).

Now comes the blouse. I had measured the width and length needed for the blouse and approximately marked the same and cut the cloth (picture 3-5). Now the darker shade is used as the hand portion. I need some puffs to be on the hand and had marked the same for that and also needed lighter shade for the piping and cut the cloth (picture 7-10).

Cutting and stitching

Now neck is marked and cut as circled portion. Piping for neck is given using darker shade cloth (picture 11-13). Now I had got two pieces of embroidery left, I had used the same separately in the front portion of the blouse. I had used the default embroidery option in my machine to do the cut work (picture 14-16). I had also used the build in embroidery in my sewing machine to have a strip of the darker shade towards the middle of the blouse (picture17-18).

The puffs in the hand is sewed separately and piping is done and later is joined to the body (picture 20-23). In the back portion of the blouse, slit is given, since the blouse will be tight enough and wont be able to wear it from the top. The slit in the back is given and hook and hole is given as in case of saree blouse (picture 24-25).

Now the Skirt and blouse is ready. all the measurements are taken in an approximate manner, using a long thin cloth itself. I'm sure that this is not the way to stitch , but this is just an experimentation of mine (picture 29).

Hope you enjoy!!

      Great job deepateresa. I don't it was your daughter who is beautiful, or the dress she is wearing.

      Kudos for the hard work you have put behind this hub and the dress, the blouse and skirt.
