Tiered dress

I bought the fabric material for quite sometime. It was on sale at a fabric store in Ampang Point. After looking around and figuring what dress design I should make, I decided that tiered dress would be interesting. I guess after a few dresses, you kind of able to just decide what pattern and come up with a design, cut and sew away. My challenge at the moment is to make a perfect fit for a tiny body or for any body for that matter. Ok if I have measured why would I have this problem right? Exactly. My problem is I am too lazy to measure. Boleh? I end up having to alter all the time. Is this normal? I don't know, I just think that after finishing a dress, one should be able to wear it immediately. A person should never have to endure ripping off the thread and resew the dress after a painstaking task of putting them together the first time. It is just not fun!! Oh well...I am not an expert that's why. I have another problem. I always want to sew things fast and get it done and overwith ASAP! This is a major problem that leads to a major disaster. I'll go into that in my next post, a whole subject by itself.

Back to the dress, I made this with care but somehow I cut the fabric too wide. Little Nia has not grown horizontally ever. Why did I do that? I have no idea. Easy peasy...what I did was just cut 1"at the side from below the armpit and go down to 2" to the hem of the skirt into the seam allowance. It turned out nice. Just waiting for the nice ocassion to wear.
