The Princess Flamingo Dress

Well... that's what Hanhan called it, because it's pink.

Made this dress for her birthday. She is really happy about it, no hesitation in trying. I'm really happy too, succeed in my 1st try sewing satin and organza.

Initially made a 100cm size for her, but it was way too big, did a lot of cutting to make it fit her. Finished it on the very day she wore it to school for her birthday celebration. Determined to make a princess dress for her, instead of just buying one for her. It's more of a challenge for me than just a dress for her.

Actually right after I bought the satin and organza, I happened to bypass a shop selling little girls' dress, the princess type...... also using satin and organza. Secretly, I'm telling my self that I don't want to come here to get one for Hanhan, it will be my last resort.

Pattern is from the older version of Cucito, which is then known as Child Boutique. Made modification to the back panel, hoping that Hanhan will not out grow from the dress too fast.
