Hi All,

I wanted to share the pictures of the dress I made for my daughter! This was the first time I embroidered something for her.

The fabric I have used is cotton and the threads too are stranded cotton. She loved this dress for its colors. Although it was a little tight near the arm scye.

How do you guys measure the arm scye so it comfortable and turns out perfect every time?

@kittykill, so for missing out the details! Here they are:

The fabric is 6 meters of creme-colored raw silk fabric purchased the Karnataka Silks Industries, Bangalore. The threads are stranded cotton marketed in India under the brand Anchor Coats.

We didn't pre-wash the fabric before embroidery as this fabric needs special dry cleaning! and also we were desperate to start. We traced out the design using yellow carbon paper. This process was tedious to covering the borders for 6 meter long fabric. Now entered our Aunt who has tremendous amount of patience. She did this embroidery with hands.. no machines involved. Stitched used were satin, stem and chain.

While working with this kind of fabric, the most difficult thing is to maintain the tension of the embroidery thread. Pulling it too hard puckers the fabric while pulling too loose will make the stitch look bad. Between me, my cousin and my aunt we took a month or so to finish this sari.

Your daughter is adorable!

And the clothes you made for her are extremely beautiful! The details on the yellow frock are so perfect! I wish I can do something like this too.

The pink skirt is my favorite though!

thanks for sharing.

Hi, this print on this fabric is awesome and the black bias tape you have used is perfect! I agree that this top can go with a pair of leggings, jeans when the child grows taller!
