Daughter's school reopens today (Summer vacations are over here in India) and this meant mom made her a new dress.

Front View


Straps enter through a slit at front and go through loop at the back and are knotted as ties; this makes it more adjustable as she grows!

Hem is 2 inch (more 'boutiqueish') and also helps to adjust when she grows tall and has been blind hemmed in machine

A very cute dress, and she looks happy to wear it. I like the buttons on the belt and the ingenious adjustable neck opening.
