Mandala dress


I finished this dress/ long top for my 3 year old today, it was quite a process, but well worth it! First came the dyeing then the sewing, as I wanted separately coloured pieces. I used habotai silk and made up the design as I went along.


The back view is a beautiful turquoise. I love turquoise. The dress sits gorgeously on her and is light and flowing.


I'll be making these in various sizes for my Etsy shop once I do a little more tweaking. I think they would do well at a market too, which I hope to do eventually. If anyone is interested in pre ordering for Christmas you are most welcome to contact me.

WOW! You really have been busy! Going postal with your parcel today (so not happy with the 3rd skein but see what you think?) What a super sweet model you have!
Keep smiling,
Nell
p.s. bet the silk feels great to wear - destined to be a summer favourite?
