Homemade Navratri Wear Dress(with Polka Dot and Floral Design)

Ola!!!! , my name is Kiran Tripathi .I am a housewife. I love sewing and this is my first Instructable.


This is a casual wear frock designed for my daughter . My daughter didn't felt comfort in wearing synthetic market clothes therefore I decided to make a cotton frock for her . This frock has a polkar dot and a floral design in blue with a back string. There is not much decoration in this frock its design is just kept simple for two reasons- 1.My daughter does not likes bright and shiny clothes as they are uncomfortable. 2.My machine is not capable of stitching multiple plates . And can not do many other things like Janome's machine.

I made this dress for NAVRATRI
therefore HAPPY NAVRATRI!!!!
