Stitching a cute frock

Updated on July 24, 2017

Mostly, I do my stitching by myself. I haven’t learned stitching from a technical person. Everything has been done under a trial and error manner. Since I had a baby girl, I was wondering how I could stitch something for her. I longed for a baby girl, so that I could put cute dresses, accessories etc., which I loved most. I’m here by explaining my experience, of stitching a frock, for my daughter. Hope this may give some sort of idea in anybody.

Anyway, I thought to try something special for my daughter. Now she is 2.8 years and so I thought I will stitch a frock for her. I bought 2 meter satin cloth ad 2 meter Silk type material and 3meter of Lace.

I took her length and along the length wise, I folded the cloth into 4 and marked the portion below neck, hand and till the length. It is a simple cut and can be done easily. Later I did piping using satin cloth, along the neck and hand. Later Stitched the lace around the neck and then stitched lace along the hand, this will make the hand of the frock.

The satin cloth is given as a lining to the Main cloth and that will add a shining to the frock. Now the main cloth is given a slit to get away the simple look. Firstly I did a piping with satin material, over the slit and then stitched lace along the same. Both satin and main clothes are stitched along the bottom portion. Again in the below portion of the cloth also the lace is done.

Now the satin lining in the below portion needs to be attractive, while looked through the slit in the main cloth. So a long portion of main cloth is attached to the bottom portion of the satin cloth, as frills. A portion of main cloth is stitched and attached to the body, so that frock can be tied along the body, in the form of bow.

Later I found that the frock is plain on the top, so I just maded a frill out of the same main cloth and attached it to the top portion so that it looks nice.

Yes the frock is ready for my cutie…

How does it look?
