party frock for a birthday girl.

I always  love to take challenges..but never thought it will be this much challenging..one of my friends asked me to stitch party frocks for her one year old girl..two frocks I stitched..one is stretchable material with net and other one is a lacy material..sorry second one I forgot to take snap..



 hats off to those ppl who is sewing with this type of material..somehow I managed to finish both these frocks..but it was like testing my  patience level.   Thereafter my sewing machine is not friendly with me..it acts funny..
I finished foundation pieced block conducted by my friend Nima..in desiquilt..binding is yet  to do..
I know ..there is some more perfection needed in mitered corner..
if u want to try this block pls visit her blog..
thank you friends dropping ur comments here..
