Akshara in a traditional pattu pavadai chattai

Something other than a body-suit for a change! Akshara was dressed up in a traditional pavadai chattai (frock and top for non-tamilians!) for the thottil ceremony. I guess that this must have been the change-over dress before/after the actual ceremony. I stand corrected. This was the dress Akshara wore when she was first taken from Vidhya’s house to my house. This pattu pavadai was gifted to Akshara by  Vidhya’s Athai, who had stitched it herself. But the “Ah! girls” holds good, as it seems that lot of preparation went into this exercise along with a photo session…

Update: It’s been 2 months since Akshara got her pattu pavadai. Now it was laya’s (Akshara’s cousin!) turn for a pattu pavadai. Akshara got a chance to try it out too.
