KALI LENGHA or PANEL SKIRT




Kali or umbrella... kali or umbrella this is the one thought that kept repeating every waking and sleeping moment, and I was not able to decide what to do. 😩😧😏

When stitching a garment for oneself it seems so much more effort less and easier when compared to doing it for someone else.  Trust me i know..!!!  😣

My friend wanted to buy a ghagra/ lengha for helself.. We looked into a few which were online but nothing seemed actually good enough for the price. We were disappointed.πŸ˜” Then one day she suggests.. you know to stitch why don't you stitch me one??  I was like " SAY WHAT".😨 
Then slowly the idea seemed good.. really good...  πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

But once we started looking into the fabric and the actual  time came to stitch the garment my night mare began. so many questions i kept asking myself.. which style?? how simple ??? will she like it??? etcccc... πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

Any way finally I settle on a simple top made of sequenced material and a kali or panel skirt made of net and satin lining. and Voila.. a new garment is born. hehe.. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

What a relief.. the whole process felt like going to write the finals and waiting for the results.. πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜•and guess what I PASSED. 😁😁😁😁

PONCHO time

Time to do some more crochet. 

AH!! 😡I love to spend time cuddled on the couch under my blanket with some wool and a crochet needle. And of course the computer ( need the pattern you see). πŸ˜‰

 Soooo...
Today's project is a PONCHO that I made for a friends daughter. As usual I choose something very simple and easy. The instructions in the video were also easy to follow.

This is the final piece.




I got the pattern from    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jIqVPuD5R8

I increased the foundation stitches to fit for a 6 yr old, I also adjusted to height accordingly.

I believe its a project that beginners can try out.  so what say want to try..??  Okk..while you do that me back to hunting for what I am going to do next...

Winter is coming. And with the present climatic changes we can't even predict if it's going to be bad or good.
Be prepared
Crocheted a cap with ear covers. It's a basic crochet pattern that's easy.

Simple Frock

A simple Frock with top bib and gathered skirt. With satin ribbon ties for back toes and a zipper back opening. Added the lace trim for extra decoration. 
It's a very easy project with the right measurements and the basic bodies draft pattern.

Pattu pavadai 2

Pattu pavadai.. A traditional dress for the young girls down in South India...
It can be bought ready made or stitched according to choice. The grandness of the dress depends on the occasion.
I stitched this for my daughter.. who loved it. The long skirt.. flares out as she twirls around..

I stitched the skirt with a attached bib to act as a slip and the top is stitched with puff sleeves and a low back with ties..

Loved the color and the gold work adds grandness..
