I was given quite an ample time to complete the project. The deadline is the little girl's birthday in December. I didn't have the confidence in the beginning and wasn't sure if I can do it, hence didn't start the project after some time and my excuse to myself was there isn't suitable fabric to make the dress yet :p
Then one fine day, I found the fabric, though not the exact colour of Elsa dress, but I thought it would be perfect for the dress. It's the end of roll fabric, so I bought it all, needed the extra just in case I have to try it a few times before getting the piece right :)
Thanks to the tutorial provided by my friend. I managed to complete the dress in time for the little girl's birthday. I have also used the left over fabric to make another piece for my girl. There isn't enough fabric to make a same length circle skirt, so I made a high low circle skirt for my girl instead. It turned out fine as well. For those who are interested to try, here is the tutorial http://thegirlinspired.com/2014/06/elsa-dress-tutorial/ . Fyi, I did make some modifications to the original pattern.
I'm glad that both girls are really happy with their dresses. Happy birthday to both December baby! Hope this specially custom made dress would add to their sweet memories.
I would like to thank my friend for her idea and encouragement, without it I think I wouldn't have completed the dress. Thanks PY!
