Dress out of Sari

I used my georgette sari again to make these dresses. This time I used the same material but sewed it in different styles. I made a kid’s style dress for my daughter.
The thing that makes georgette fabric distinctive is its crinkly crepe-light texture, which feels slightly rough and dull, but gives the finished article a bouncy, flowing look.
The most challenging part of sewing silk georgette material might be the cutting part.

Although I have sewn with slippery fabrics such as chiffon, I prefer to sew 100% cotton fabric because of the way cotton handles while being sewn.
There is a challenge in creating matching mother & daughter clothes. While it might seem superficial and easy, there’s more to it than what catches the eye.
