New acquisitions and preparations for picnic

 Chiffon saree with embroided lotus flower from Utsav fashion

Next month is the costuming picnic.I do need to breastfed my baby so I thought a saree will be a good thing.This one is my newest acquisition , green with lotus flower.It's so comfortable so I think it's the best choice.It was sold as aqua but it's really more a light green.

 Royal blue silk -cotton saree from Utsav fashion

At this point , I can say I do have a collection of saree.This one is a silk-cotton and may be for halloween.It was my first choice for the picnic but the color is dark and I don't want to attract the sun specially if it's a very sunny day.There is so many other saree I wish to buy but can't afford it for the moment.

I do found a cute bonnet 4$ at Walmart.It has become an inspiration for my little girl.I do have 2 options for the picnic : a dress or a one piece suit.Both are matching and were not expensive.I do save time.
As I am in the preparations of so many sewing project , just look at this picture.This is a gentle reminder why you need to wash your fabric before using it.I had the same surprise about both skirt for the saree.The dye bleed so much.

I may buy a red saree , there is a white top I wish to dye since last year.I always wash it with red stuff  but it did not become  pink as much as I wish.Even things you didn't like, bleeding dye, can be usefull one day.
