After a first test of the strapless girl dress, “sarong style”  (see here), Petite Chérie loving it, I did a second one for her.

The dress is still very simple and quick to sew so that it’s fine with me that Petite Chérie loves it!

For this dress

I used a fuchsia cotton fabric as the bottom fabric and a flower printed cotton from Lecien for the top fabric.

For embellishments : a small ribbon and a fuchsia flower.

I didn’t have matching thread for the pink fabric to sew the hem. So, since the seam would be inevitably be seen, I decided to test a “leaf” decorative stitch on my beloved sewing machine (Janome DC4030) with a iridescent green thread. I told myself that it would remind the leaves on the print … In the end it is not truly ugly, but I think I would have preferred a matching thread that would have gone unnoticed.
