Fashion trends come and go but the little Girl’s Frock stays on, ever since its inception in the 12th century it has retained its iconic status against Spring, Fall and other fashion seasons that come and go. Though the original frock has undergone quite a few changes over time, the basic essence of the garment has stayed alive reinventing itself time and again – its latest avatar is cuteness personified. Mothers adore it, while little girls begin their love affair with fashion from their very first frock. So why not make a frock that will turn your daughter into a princess. Great idea? Yeah, let’s frock it!

*Note:The following steps are for making a simple frock. However if one wants to make a frock of different size, the actual measurements can be filled in the following box and the formulas mention in the steps of construction can be used. Pattern making is a onetime exercise for a garment the pattern can be used repeatedly.
As usual with nearly every garment, we will begin with Pattern Making and follow the drafting process by cutting and then sewing.
Take the piece of Brown paper measuring 36”x 46” size and fold it into half width-wise so that you your folded sheet measures 18”x 46”.
Then mark a starting point at the corner as shown in the picture below:
