I made Hanan this dress simply because I need a reason to use this cute Tina Givens fabric. I LOVE the unusual shade of pink. It's like a mixture of pink and coral and really, really beautiful in real life. The yellow lamp/chandelier and the contrasting blue ladybirds are perfect as it makes Hanan wonder and point and a breeze to put the dress on her.
The dress is a Japanese pattern from Natural and Layered Style Pochee Special pattern book. Simple 5 piece pattern with tie up closure at the back. It looks like a no brainer to experienced sewer, but the upper bodice has a curved shape that helps the dress swing, thus different from similar looking dresses.
All in all, when your little girl happily twirl and dance in the dress you made her, you know you've done something right! *grinning momma*
