Baby Girl Frock Pattern - Printed Fabric

I love getting frocks stitched for my daughter. But there are two issues with that - scarcity of good tailors in Bangalore and good fabric. But this has not stopped me from hoarding fabric whenever I visit my favorite shop in my native - pulpel textiles.

I have no words to describe the kind of textiles available there - from curtain fabric to kalamkari fabric. All of them are available at a reasonable price and I have never been disappointed with the quality of the products ever since I can remember.

When I was in Kerala during Onam vacation, I went fabric shopping and I managed to purchase few items. Actually I was bit disappointed that the shop was too crowded to shop at your own pace. A kerala set mundu for thiruvathira, fabrics for a quilt for my daughter and upholstery fabric for our sofa was few items I purchased.

This blue printed fabric is one of the fabric that I purchased for stitching a dress for C. I also purchased an extra meter for stitching a blouse. The fabric was handed over to my regular tailor in my native and this is what she has done.

The tailor added the pink fabric and the piping as per her liking and I just loved the outcome. I have not got time to get my blouse stitched. I will post a picture whenever that is done.

I would have preferred a bit more length for the dress. But that is not much of a problem because she has left adequate fabric in the lower seam to lengthen the dress. I plan to do it some day soon.

Now let us talk about the cost. The fabric was purchased at Rs 72/meter. This dress required 1.5 metre and the stitching charge was 200 bucks. So approx cost of this dress is 310 INR. Isn't it well worth the price?
