Flower and polkadot dress

Another dress done from my list.

3) Dina's little flower cotton dress

I added the dark pink and white dots just to add some contrast. Added about 4" at the hem and a little peak below the yoke all around. Instead of my normal gathers, I did box pleat all around. I kinda like it. I've got a feeling I'm going to do box pleat in a lot of other projects to come until I get tired of it.

The front. The picture is a bit blurry. It must be the humid. It was really hot this afternoon.

The back. Low back and dark pink flower buttons.

Close up of the front.

Close up of the back.

I actually did the open tie at the shoulders.

And found it nice to just tie them up as if it is meant to be. I was surprised by how it turned out after the tie. I didn't know what to expect actually.


  1. WoW....its gorgeous, nana! LOVE it absolutely!
    Dina will surely love this cos its pink, her fav color :))) THANK you!!! mwaaah!

    can it be worn the other way round? back on front? hmm tak sempat simpan utk raya nie...heheh.

  2. Glad you like it kak fiza....
    Since it's ow back you have to see if it is really low on the front. Kalau tak sgt ok I guess...
