Making a cute dress for my little princess

This hub is all about creating a princess frock for my 4year old daughter, for the little queen contest at her pre school class. The hub will take you through, how I bought the raw materials, how I designed the dress and other accessories and finally how I groomed her to the stage, with all the accessories.

Deciding On the Color

Since I do my kid's dress myself, it is not such a big deal to stitch a new gown for the show. But deciding on the color of the dress was a bit confusing. What her class teacher told was a white or light colored long frock, a crown.I had no Idea on how to work on that line further. Anyway I thought to stitch a grand one for my kid...

In search of color, I searched Google images, discussed with my friends and at the end, decided on the purple color, as the color itself looked gorgeous.

Buying the Materials

I had already decided, the material to be net and satin. We went to the largest shopping giant POTHY's and in the second floor, I could see the large collection of materials... I had no confusion in selecting the net, I took 5 meters of net material -purple color and selected around 3 meters of purple satin material.

Making the Gown

After buying the material, may be due to over excitement, I was just blank with Ideas. I started like a normal frock, with normal frills. I made borders of the frock with laces. But the same looked very very ordinary and it just made me unhappy about the look of the frock.

Later I removed all the laces and started to stitch a long piece of satin material and made it in the form of a flower and stitched it towards the top right corner of the frock by hand. Then turned the rest of the cloth in such a fashion and brought it to the opposite direction and stitched them in place.

Now towards the waist part, I had a heavily worked purple colored lace, and attached the same to the waist. Now to add more beauty, I bought sequences and glued it using fabric glue.

Making the veil

Since the class teacher, said about the crown, I thought to come up with a bit more thing, a veil, which we use during First Holy Communion at Church. A small portion of violet satin was taken and made it to rectangle in shape, about 5 inch length. To this satin piece, I did attach the rectangle shaped net. Later decorated the satin piece with sequences glued to it. To hold the veil in place, I did created a thread piece from either side of the satin piece, so that it can be tied up in place.

The Basket Full of flowers

To add to the beauty, I did bought a jute basket from the market and some satin flowers of violet and white color, a white ribbon. I did arrange these in the basket and tied it to the basket, so that my kid won't take those flowers outside.

On the day of Contest

In the morning, I dressed my kid with the frock, tied the veil to her head, and gave her a pair of princess shoes and also gave her a necklace that suits her dress. Also a little touches up in her face.

All set & we are ready for the contest now!!!
